If you’re not a fan of Bollywood soundtracks, it’s likely the only encounter you’ve ever had with Sonu Nigam was his appearance on one song from the Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack. Yeah, “Aaj Ki Raat,” the one you skipped over because it sounded too much like a Bollywood soundtrack song (which is ironic since the song was pretty crossover-y). If you are a fan of Bollywood soundtracks, you are certainly instantly familiar with his voice, as it’s been heard on more than 2,000 songs, including – swoon – “Ishq Bina” from Taal (which, seriously, if he had done nothing else, would have ensured his place in playback singer history). In other words, Nigam is a capital-G Giant in the world of Indian film soundtrack singers (and a heartthrob to boot), and he delivers an appropriately overwhelming live performance that, even if you have only a mildly passing interest in the music, is well worth the price of admission.
