The first major South Asian dance frenzy gig of 2015 in the Greater Toronto area kicked off in Brampton’s (in the suburbs of Toronto)Rose Theatre on Feb 22. Montreal musicians, Rup Magon and Qurram Hussain (Q), the dynamic duo of JoSH, and their band took charge and sent electric vibes through the engaged audience, totally driving away their winter blahs.
Radio and TV celebrity and comedian, Ali Hassan, was the master of ceremonies for the evening and introduced the opening act, the Shiamak Dance Troupe, who warmed up the crowd with a few energetic and colourful dance sequences.
Soon after, JoSH took centre stage , starting the evening with a musical ardaas (musical prayer), then following with their first hit ‘Kabhi’ prompting loud applause from the patrons, notably when the duo broke into a few lyrics from the song ‘Kabhie, Kabhie’ by Lata Mangeshkar and Mukesh from the movie of the same name starring Amitabh Bachchan and Rakhee.
JoSH kept regaling the crowd with song after song from their repertoire including ‘Main hoon Tanha’, ‘Pyar ho Gaya’, ‘Mausam’, ‘Dil Mein Chumke’ all the while intercalating each song with anecdotes and stories from their lives, including how their first album bombed, but they were not deterred and they kept on tenaciously until they became the only band ever to score two MTV awards in a single year.
They now do songs for movies and go on world tours and are extremely popular in India and Pakistan where they play to sold out crowds. They are also ambassadors for Samsung phones.
Rup has also progressed to acting in movies having acted in the Canadian production ‘Breakaway’ and in the yet to be released Hollywood production, ‘The Black Prince’, a story on the last Sikh Maharaja, Dalip Singh.
They then slammed into a medley of traditional dance songs including ‘Ole,Ole’ mixed with the popular English hit number ‘Feeling hot, hot, hot’, then going on to ‘Bari Barsi’ and finally ‘Josh Naal’, ramming into the ever-captivating and high octane number ‘Jhulelal, Mastkalander’, ending the night on that high note.
Josh had several musicians and singers backing them up including Gurpreet Chana , simply known as The Tabla Guy, who showed his wizardry on the tabla and hang, a UFO looking percussion instrument, that just wowed everybody!
