Arijit Singh, the voice behind many hit Bollywood songs is set to take centre stage in Colombo on Monday.

Arijit Singh was born on April 25, 1987 in West Bengal to a Punjabi father and a Bengali mother.

He initiated training in music from his house, since his maternal grandmother used to sing and his maternal aunt is trained in Indian classical music. He also learnt music from his mother who sings and plays the tabla. His inclination towards music led his parents to decide on giving him a professional training in music.

He was taught Indian classical music by Rajendra Prasad Hazari and trained in tabla by Dhirendra Prasad Hazari while Birendra Prasad Hazari taught him Rabindra Sangeet and pop music.

In 2010, Singh started working with Pritam Chakraborty on three films—Golmaal 3, Crook and Action Replay which took his career to new heights.

Arijit Singh Live will take place on May 8, 2016 at the Havelock Grounds in Colombo, where Singh will take stage with a symphony orchestra to give Sri Lankan audiences a one-of-akind performance. MTV / MBC Networks are the Exclusive Media Partners for the event.
