Travel company Dream World USA brings Bollywood music to Manila as part of its objectives of creating a boom of international artists in the Philippines.
The company will fly in the legendary DJ Akbar Sami of India, to introduce his brand of house music to the local Philippine party scene. DJ Akbar will perform in a one-night dance party on Jan. 25 at the Resorts World Manila’s “House Manila.” He will bring to Pinoy partygoers his own brand of club hits.
“By bringing in DJ Akbar and acknowledging the Filipino’s reputation as ‘lovers of great music’ and the Philippines being a thriving party hub, we know that his brand of music will be a big hit among Filipinos,” said Sumeet Ramchandani, President and Chief Executive Officer of Dream World USA.
DJ Akbar started his career at an early age in his native India as a dancer where he became part of dance ensembles in popular Bollywood movies. From then on, he moved to become a well-known dance choreographer who then turned to being a DJ and musician.
He is credited for having pioneered the DJ music scene in his country. Some of his renowned remix albums are “Jalwa,” “Jalwa 2” and “Jadoo.”
The DJ has toured extensively, particularly in the US, for more than a decade. He recently ventured into singing with the remake of a classic Bollywood ditty called “Kabhi Kabhi.”
