Middle row : Daniel, myself, Mike & Anand
Bottom row : Nanthakumar (Dr Nan), James (Relax Bro) & Ravi (Katto)
It's a photo shoot for our concert at Kallang Theatre in 1986.
My other brother Bashir is not in the picture as he was in Chennai (Madras).
He flew in a few days before our concert.
Bashir was already based in Chennai since 1984, playing keyboards and arranging for some Tamil Film Music Directors including Illayaraja, Gangai Amaran and Shankar Ganesh.
Much later Bashir also worked with AR Rahman doing jingles and programming. He played keyboards on the song "Hamma Hamma" from the movie "Bombay" as well as for the film "Kaadhalan" in Telegu.
