    Brasilia (UNI): Remo Fernandes, India's top rock musician, had ministers, diplomats, businessmen and journalists rocking to his music at a concert here last night. The event was ''India Evening'' organised here by the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) on the eve of the first India-Brazil- South Africa (IBSA) Summit. Several businessmen from the three countries are attending the IBSA CEOs' summit organised alongside. To help liven up things a bit, IBEF brought in Remo, who was born in Goa, a former Portuguese colony. Remo, who performed for Presidents and Prime Ministers, also won the hearts of the Brazilians' in the audience with his Portuguese numbers and Goan music.

    As he belted out popular Hindi numbers such as "O Meri Munni" and "Humma Humma" (from the film "Bombay"), many in the crowd, including Brazilian Foreign Minister Celso Amorim, took to the floor. Commerce and Industry Minister Kamal Nath, Minister of State for External Affairs Anand Sharma and National Security Adviser M K Narayanan were among those who attended the event. Remo was accompanied at the concert by The Microwave Papadums, his back-up band.
