Pop star Shakira arrives in India for first-ever concert

MUMBAI (AFP) - Latin American multiple Grammy award singer Shakira arrived in Mumbai Saturday for her first hip-shaking Indian performance.

Shakira, who is on a world tour for her "Oral Fixation Vol. 2" album, will be performing some of her biggest hits including "Hips don't lie", "Don't bother" and "Illegal" at the concert Sunday night in India's entertainment and financial capital.

"I love India and its people. I have a lot of fans in India and love the culture and food," Shakira told reporters adding she was looking forward to her concert.

Best known for sensual belly dancing and her powerful voice, Shakira will 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".
