Now it is the turn on Ilayaraja

The only difference between Indiaís two best music directors A R Rahman and Ilayaraja is their brand of music. Otherwise, both are intensely private individuals who donít like public attention.

They also shunned music tours for some time. First, Rahman fell for it. And Ilayaraja is. Rahman enthralled Tamil music lovers all around the world with his musical tour around the world last year. Now Ilayaraja too would be going on a world tour and performing live in front of audiences early next year.

Asked about his proposed world tour, Illayaraja says, "after almost a decade I would go back on stage to perform live. I was against live-shows since I felt it takes much time. I always thought I could use the time to compose a song".

"But, when Raj, CEO, Dreammakers, Dubai, wanted to take me to different countries in the world where Tamils lived, I agreed, since it would be an opportunity for my fans to come, meet and interact with me".

"I accepted this tour on a condition that proceeds from the concert would go to orphanages, old-age homes and schools for the blind and deaf'.

Asked about his musical symphony on Thiruvasagam, Illayaraja says 'the work is still on. It would be over by November and be released in a grand manner'.

Come February, Illayaraja would perform six concerts in Chennai, Singapore, Dubai, Malaysia, USA and the UK with a 115-member orchestra besides leading playback singers from Tamilnadu.
