Chennai band to perform at Olympics

Chennai:  July 3rd  Chennai fusion band has been selected by Danny Boyle, the director of Slumdog Millionaire, to perform at the London Olympics, 'Staccato', comprising a few teenagers and others in their early twenties, is one of the two bands from Asia that will perform at the Olympic Park on July 30 and August 2. 
Their fusion music showcases  a contemporary treatment of Indian ragas and talas. Aishvarrya Suresh, a city model-turned-vocalist, feels their success  lies in "the mix of Hindustani classical songs with western beats". 
Both their entries for the selection - 'Sounds Of Air' and 'Salsa' were instrumental pieces. They plan to zero in on their Olympic composition with a little help from the Mozart of Madras, AR Rahman, whose nephew Kashif is part of the band.
