Top artists set for Eid concert.

ORGANISERS are gearing up for a major live concert this Eid, featuring renowned Asian artists.

The event, The Eid Show, organised by High Life Bahrain, will be held on Sunday at Elite Seef Residence and Hotel from 8pm to 2am and will showcase Pakistani artists Falak Shabir and Bilal Saeed as well as UK-based Dr Zeus along with local DJs - DJ Andy and DJ Nirmal.

Dr Zeus is the stage name of Baljit Singh Padam, who is a Birmingham-based music producer with large fan bases in India, US, Pakistan, UK, Canada and other Punjabi markets.

He blends raw Punjabi beats with urban whips and gained stardom in India in late 2003, with his hit song Kangna.

He released his debut solo album, The High Life, in 2001, on the Envy music label. The album featured vocal talent Amar Arshi singing Gwandian Da Dhol, which was a hit. Unda Da Influence was released in 2003. It surprised the Bhangra industry and gave Zeus the international and UK boost. Kangna was chosen the Best Album and Best Song of 2003.

His third album, The Original Edit, released in 2005 with Lehmber Hussainpuri singing all the vocals, won the 'Best Album of 2005' and the song Sachiyan Suniyan Ni was voted the 'Best Song of 2005.'

Falak Shabir was born in Karachi. Initially, he played his guitar and singing was just a hobby. However, it soon turned into a passion and ultimately became his profession.

Falak emerged as a shining star and gained recognition for his distinctive talent and originality of outclass music.

His first video Rog appeared on Youtube in 2008 and was nominated for 'TMA', while his second super hit romantic number, Tera Saath Ho, was nominated for MTV awards.

In 2011, Falak amazed his fans with the video Soniye, which revealed his talent. He later received an excellent response for Ijazat.

This year Falak gained more global recognition as his track Tera Saath Ho, is officially a part of the music of the international movie 7 Welcome to London.

Bilal Saeed started writing and composing songs for upcoming singers and household Pakistani artists like Amanat Ali, Huma Khawaja, Annie Khalid, Falak Shabir and many more.

He had some remarkable hits as a lyricist and composer and not long after, he created his own recording studio, Bee's studio.

Having his own studio gave him enough comfort to create music of his own.
