Pop star Shakira to shake her hips in first-ever Indian concert
Posted on Friday, March 23, 2007 (EST)
Latin American multiple Grammy award singer Shakira arrives in Mumbai this weekend for her first hip-shaking Indian performance, organisers said Friday.
MUMBAI (AFP) - Shakira, who is on a world tour for her "Oral Fixation Vol. 2" album, will be performing some of her biggest hits including "Hips dont lie", "Dont bother" and "Illegal" at the concert on Sunday night in India's entertainment and financial capital.
Shakira "has a large fan base in India," said Venkat Vardhan, chairman of DNA Networks, an event management firm.
Best known for sensual belly dancing and a powerful voice, Shakira will arrive on Saturday and stay in the presidential suite at a five-star hotel in Mumbai, media reports said.
The pop star will be pampered with her favourite exotic fruits -- papayas from Hawaii, peaches and prunes from Dubai and Australian berries, Mumbai's Mirror newspaper reported.
In the run-up to Shakira's arrival, local newspapers have carried articles detailing how to learn the singer's dance moves.
Shakira, who won Grammy awards in 2001 and 2003, dominated the Latin Grammy awards last year, winning four trophies, including album of the year for "Fijacion Oral Vol. 1".
