MUMBAI: Australia Network is very proud to present the exclusive direct broadcast of a concert for Sydney Festival 2010 by internationally renowned music composer A. R. Rahman. On the same night he performs his only Australian concert, Australia Network will bring A. R. Rahman's unique outdoor extravaganza to the small screen for fans from Fiji to Delhi to enjoy. Dubbed the 'Mozart of Madras' by Time magazine earlier this year, Rahman is best-known globally for his two-time Oscar winning score for the film Slumdog Millionaire.
