HMV Saregama India, the music company, is set to go the whole hog with a fresh band talent hunt show titled as 'Hoo la la la' (a popular humming bit from A.R.Rahman ) on Sun TV soon. This show will be telecast in 13 episodes, and A.R.Rahman will be participating as the jury in the show for the first time, amidst his busy schedule.
The contestants will be selected from all the regions of Tamil Nadu. The same programme will be telecast in Gemini TV also and for this show, they have planned to select the participants separately from Andhra Pradesh. The participants can compose tunes for a fresh song written by the popular poets. For the Tamil show, Vaali has written the song and titled it as 'Nambikkai'.
Come on young musicians, the Isaipuyal is ready to hand over the baton to you!
