The Myanmar Times - - The Pulse - MYO SATT myosatt@mm­

FI­NALLY, af­ter more than two decades spent pur­su­ing their sep­a­rate ca­reers, Sithu Lwin and Tin Zar Maw are get­ting it to­gether. The two will take part in a live duet con­cert on Au­gust 27 called “Be­yond the 21st Duet Live”, to take place at the Myan­mar Con­ven­tion Cen­tre.

The two best friends, each with a suc­cess­ful ca­reer, at­tended the same singing class and have each won many singing con­tests over the past 21 years.

“We should have done a live show like this a long time ago. It’s hap­pen­ing now be­cause there are peo­ple and me­dia man­age­ment to sup­port us. I’m par­tic­u­larly grate­ful to Myan­mar Me­dia Man­age­ment, which is plan­ning the live show,” said Tin Zar Maw, who has just com­pleted her one-woman show in Taung­gyi.

Myan­mar Me­dia Man­age­ment ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Ko Soe Thura Shwe said, “We’ve been plan­ning this event for the past three years, ever since Tin Zar Maw came back to Yan­gon for her birth­day show. They’re both best friends, but they’ve never done an act like this to­gether in their whole ca­reer. It’s time for a de­but live show that is some­thing re­ally spe­cial. That’s why we de­cided to ar­range this event.”

The pair will per­form with two sep­a­rate sec­tions, acous­tic and full band. “So far, the plan is that we will sing 12 solo songs each and four duets, then an­other duet with our friend Chaw Su Khin that all three of us used to sing to­gether,” said Tin Zar Maw.

“I plan to sing some songs from my past al­bums which I don’t usu­ally sing in live shows be­cause I don’t want the au­di­ence to think I’m just singing the same old pop­u­lar songs. But I’ll also per­form the songs my fans de­mand,” said Sithu Lwin.

He added, “I’m re­ally happy that we’re both work­ing to­gether on a spe­cial event like this. I hope our two sets of fans will have fun and en­joy the evening.”

Ticket prices are K10,000, K20,000, K30,000 and K40,000, and can be bought at The Sun Mu­sic Pro­duc­tion, Mann Thiri Record­ing, 1876 Hot Line and Myan­mar Me­dia Man­age­ment on the 12nd floor of Dagon Cen­tre 2. There will be 1500 tick­ets sold. The show will start at 7pm.

The pair also plan a duet al­bum. “We dis­cussed an al­bum last year, but we haven’t started any­thing yet. I hope we can launch it next Fe­bru­ary in time for Valen­tine’s Day if we push each other to do our record­ing as fast as we can,” said Tin Zar Maw.
