Press Note: ManiSharma Rocks in Columbus

"Manisharma has proved time and time again that his musical events are quite unlike those featuring other composers or singers," says Jagadish Prabhala whose JP Entertainment is hosting the Columbus show along with Saibaba Society of Ohio on July 20. "His music has as much appeal as that of any big Tollywood star studded event."

"It has been a very busy year. Yet I thought of the concert tour for many reasons," the composer says. He also loves being with his singers off the recording studio but doesn't get many opportunities to do so in India. "It is a different feeling when you work with them for a stage show," he explains. "The challenges are different, and we come alive even more than when we are in a recording studio. The friendship also grows."

Manisharma's biggest challenge, however, is not assembling first-rate artists or having the best acoustics at each venue. "There are fans who have long memories," he says. "And there are fans who love the recent songs. Now, I would have a good mix of the old and new. Even then it is not easy to choose one beautiful song over another."

The show in Columbus was orgainzed by Saibaba temple society of Ohio as a fund raising event for construction of Saimandir. The Society has purchased 7.7 acres of ground on Lewis Centre Road for construction of permanent Sai mandir. Architectural plans are being prepared. Temple Committee has invited generous contributions from all over the USA.
