  • A. R. Rahman, Jiya Jale

    6:57

    #berklee #berkleecollegeofmusic Jiya Jale (Dil Se) is a tribute to A. R. Rahman by the Berklee Indian Ensemble in gratitude for his immense contribution to our lives through his inspiring music and journey.

    A. R. Rahman is an Indian composer, singer-songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and philanthropist. In 2009, Time Magazine placed Rahman in its list of World's Most Influential People. In a notable career spanning two decades, he has garnered particular acclaim for redefining contemporary Indian film music, and putting Indian music on the global map, in a way that no other Indian composer/performer has achieved.

    On October 24, 2014, Berklee College of Music will confer A. R. Rahman with an honorary doctor of music degree. Berklee Faculty and students from the Berklee Indian Ensemble will pay tribute to the living legend, who will join them on select pieces in a concert celebrating his music and life at Boston's Symphony Hall.

    Mr. Rahman's visit is a signature event under Berklee India Exchange, a new initiative co-founded by two Indian Berklee alums, Annette Philip (artistic director), and Clint Valladares (artist relations and strategy), as a platform for cultural conversation, through the composition, collaboration, and performance of original Indian music. Proceeds from the concert will go towards a scholarship fund in Mr. Rahman's name for students from India to attend Berklee.

    This is a huge milestone for the Berklee Indian Ensemble, one of largest and most diverse ensembles at the college, with members representing 37 countries, and counting. Founded in 2011 by faculty member, Annette Philip, the ensemble performs an expansive repertoire of Indian classical, semi-classical, folk, Sufi, and contemporary Indo-jazz music, with the ultimate goal of presenting concerts entirely consisting of original student compositions. Every year, there is at least one composition by A. R. Rahman featured in their repertoire.

  • A. R. Rahman Receives Honorary Doctorate

    5:15

    In recognition of his extraordinary contribution to the arts, A.R. Rahman received an honorary doctorate from Berklee College of Music on Friday, October 24, 2014.

    A two-time Academy Award winning composer, A. R. Rahman has helped redefine contemporary Indian music. He has sold more than 150 million albums featuring music from more than 100 film soundtracks across many languages, including scores for films such as Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours, Couples Retreat, Jodhaa Akbar, and Million Dollar Arm, among many others. Rahman has been bestowed with the Padma Bhushan and Padma Shri, two of India’s highest national civilian honors, in recognition of his contributions to music. In 2009, Time magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world. Rahman recently announced initiatives to establish a tradition in western classical music in India and embarked on an ambitious venture to set up the KM Music Conservatory and the KM Music Symphony Orchestra based out of Chennai, India. He plans to provide a platform for non-mainstream music through his music label, KM Musiq. #berklee #berkleecollegeofmusic

    9:12

Presented here with just four musicians — Ms. Ghoshal, lauto player Vasilis Kostas (Greece), violinist Layth Sidiq (Iraq/Jordan), and tabla player Giri Subramaniam (India) — this simple but soulful interpretation was performed in tribute to one of India’s most iconic voices: Lata Mangeshkar.

  • A. R. Rahman, Yeh Jo Des Hai Tera : Berklee Indian Ensemble and Berklee World Strings

    6:07

    #berklee #berkleecollegeofmusic A. R. Rahman is an Indian composer, singer-songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and philanthropist, known for redefining contemporary Indian film music, and putting Indian music on the global map, in a way that no other Indian composer/performer has achieved.

    On October 24, 2014, Berklee College of Music conferred A. R. Rahman with an honorary doctor of music degree. Berklee faculty and students paid tribute to the living legend, who joined them on select pieces in a concert celebrating his music and life at Boston's Symphony Hall.

    Mr. Rahman's visit was a signature event under Berklee India Exchange, a new initiative co-founded by two Indian Berklee alums, Annette Philip (artistic director), and Clint Valladares (artist relations and strategy), as a platform for cultural conversation, through the composition, collaboration, and performance of original Indian music. Proceeds from the concert went towards a scholarship fund in Mr. Rahman's name for students from India to attend Berklee.

    The Berklee Indian Ensemble is delighted to present “5 Peace Band” featuring renowned Indian composer and vocalist, Shankar Mahadevan. Composed by John McLaughlin, “5 Peace Band” was most notably performed by 'Remember Shakti', the reformation of 1970s indo-jazz fusion group, 'Shakti'. Led by John McLaughlin (guitar) and Zakir Hussain (tabla), 'Remember Shakti' included U. Shrinivas (mandolin), Shankar Mahadevan (vocals), and V. Selvaganesh (kanjira, ghatam, mridangam).

    It was indeed an honor for our Berklee Indian Ensemble musicians to reinterpret such an iconic composition, and collaborate on this live performance with Shankar Ji as part of the fourth Berklee India Exchange (BIX) Artist Residency. We also dedicate this video in tribute to John McLaughlin who will receive an Honorary Doctorate from Berklee College of Music on July 10th, 2017 in Valencia, Spain.

  • Berklee Indian Ensemble ft. Armeen Musa - Jaago Piya

    8:37

    We are delighted to release Jaago Piya on the auspicious occasion of Bangla Noboborsha, the first day of the Bengali Calendar year 1423. Shubhô Nôbobôrsho from all of us at Berklee College of Music!

    The first in a series of original compositions from the Berklee Indian Ensemble, Jaago Piya was written by Armeen Musa, the first Bangladeshi student to join the Berklee Indian Ensemble. Her mother, Dr. Nashid Kamal wrote the Bengali lyrics which can be found here:

    Over the years, every time the Indian Ensemble performed this piece, the arrangement evolved, with new ideas contributed by different members, until we finally recorded it with students from 17 countries. To us, Jaago Piya is a gentle, loving reminder to stay present, in the moment, to always be hopeful, and live a life filled with gratitude.

    According to Armeen, What inspires me is music. The ability of music to connect to our silent thoughts, be a gift of solidarity, in happiness and sadness, inspires and motivates me, to be a part of motions bigger than myself.

    What inspires you?

    A little cultural background:
    Jaago Piya is a collaboration of soundscapes; the melody has a semi classical flavour (classical referring to the classical music of the Indian subcontinent,) with vocal harmony that is rarely used in such a tune. The song being in Bangla, inspired the ensemble to use Bengali colours and clothes for the visual to showcase a bit of Bengali culture.

    The primary theme was using the gamcha (local checked cloth used as a towel) as clothing, scarves, hairpieces inspired by Bangladeshi fashion designer Bibi Russel, who brought the gamcha to the international fashion industry.

    Bengali New Year is a grandly celebrated day of the year in both Bangladesh and West Bengal, a truly colorful occasion, with parades, daylong musical concerts and festivals held in every corner of the country and in homes. The video hopes to capture that beautiful spirit with its own diversity and colours.

    ----
    Founded in 2011 by faculty member, Annette Philip, the Berklee Indian Ensemble is one of largest and most diverse ensembles at Berklee. The ensemble performs a wide array of South Asian music, with the ultimate goal of presenting concerts that consist entirely of original student compositions.

  • Berklee Indian Ensemble ft Shankar Mahadevan - Dil Chahta Hai - #BIXCovidFund

    5:22

    The incredible Shankar Mahadevan joins the Berklee Indian Ensemble in an exciting new version of “Dil Chahta Hai” featuring 112 artists from 21 countries. Presented by Berklee India Exchange (BIX) and T-Series, this #BIXCovidFund initiative supports marginalized Indian artists whose livelihoods have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. While the world has turned to art for solace, Indian artists from folk musicians to instrument makers are in dire need of help.

    How to get involved?

    Share: T Series will donate all proceeds from this song to our cause.

    Donate:
    T.M. Krishna’s Sumanasa Foundation

    Salim-Sulaiman’s Zariya Foundation


    BIX hopes to amplify the work of these foundations and galvanize even more global philanthropic support for this oft overlooked community. Once their fundraising goals are met, other organizations supporting the Indian music fraternity will be identified by BIX.

    A total of 112 musicians, actors, industry leaders, and Berklee students sent personal messages of hope, resilience and optimism relating to “Dil Chahta Hai” (what our hearts want), gratitude and post lockdown hopes. Those who are able have been encouraged to match their creative contribution with a pledge of financial support to these foundations.

    We are grateful to our extended BIX family from Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Dubai, India, Israel, Indonesia, Malaysia, Netherlands, Nigeria, Mexico, Japan, Jordan, Qatar, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland, Turkey and USA for making this video possible.

  • Berklee Indian Ensemble ft Vijay Prakash - Arz-E-Niyaz by Sashank Navaladi

    6:02

    The Berklee Indian Ensemble is delighted to release our second student original Arz-E-Niyaz by Sashank Navaladi, featuring the award-winning virtuosic Indian vocalist and composer, Vijay Prakash on Mirza Ghalib's 219th birth anniversary. It's the first time the Berklee Indian Ensemble has had a renowned artist perform on a student composition, and hope this will be the first of many such collaborations.

    Hailing from Mysore, Karnataka in India, Vijay Prakash is one of the most sought after Indian playback singers with hits in Hindi, Kannada, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Marathi films. He has performed with the likes of Zakir Hussain, A.R. Rahman, and Taufiq Qureshi at venues like Wembley Stadium, the O2 Arena, WOMAD and Woodstock. He also won the prestigious Filmfare Award for Best Male Playback Singer (Kannada) for the song 'Gatiya Ilidu' from the film 'Ulidavaru Kandante,' and was one of the four vocalists on Jai Ho which won both, a Grammy and an Academy award. The Berklee Indian Ensemble recorded Arz-E-Niyaz with Mr. Prakash during his Berklee India Exchange artist residency at the college in November 2015.

    Our composer, Sashank, was inspired by Arz-E-Niyaz, a poem written by the preeminent Urdu and Persian Sufi poet of the 19th century, Mirza Ghalib. Written in the form of eight couplets, 'arz-e-niyāz-e-ishq' literally translates to the 'supplication for the blessings of love.' Ghalib reflects on the days when the heart was more engulfed in the humility of passion and considered himself a more worthy offering to the beloved. For a detailed translation of the poem, please visit:

    Special thanks to our friends from the literary world for helping us with pronunciation of the Urdu lyrics: Urdu specialist, Salim Arif, and poetess, Sunayana Kachroo

  • Metallica - For Whom the Bell Tolls

    5:34

    In December 2018, the Berklee India Exchange team got an unusual request: to reimagine and interpret a Metallica classic of our choice. The Berklee Indian Ensemble has always been known to experiment, but this one took us by surprise.

    The brainchild of Mirek Vana, the Metallica Project at Berklee is a Boston Conservatory at Berklee and Berklee College of Music collaboration featuring a contemporary dance reimagination of Metallica's songs, arranged, recorded, and performed in four different musical styles, the fourth being Indian music. The dance is choreographed by renowned choreographer and director Otis Sallid.

    Berklee and Berklee Indian Ensemble alumnus Yoel Genin, from Israel, helped choose and arrange the piece. “For Whom the Bell Tolls” felt like a natural fit, and soon, a new version came to life.

  • Dil Chahta Hai : Berklee Indian Ensemble Ft. Shankar Mahadevan | T-Series

    5:21

    The incredible Shankar Mahadevan joins the Berklee Indian Ensemble in an exciting new version of “Dil Chahta Hai” featuring 112 artists from 21 countries. Presented by Berklee India Exchange (BIX) and T-Series, this #BIXCovidFund initiative supports marginalized Indian artists whose livelihoods have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. While the world has turned to art for solace, Indian artists from folk musicians to instrument makers are in dire need of help.T-Series will donate all proceeds from this song to the cause.

    To Donate:
    T.M. Krishna’s Sumanasa Foundation

    Salim-Sulaiman’s Zariya Foundation


    BIX hopes to amplify the work of these foundations and galvanize even more global philanthropic support for this oft-overlooked community. Once their fundraising goals are met, other organizations supporting the Indian music fraternity will be identified by BIX.

    A total of 112 musicians, actors, industry leaders, and Berklee students sent personal messages of hope, resilience, and optimism relating to “Dil Chahta Hai” (what our hearts want), gratitude, and post lockdown hopes. Those who are able to have been encouraged to match their creative contribution with a pledge of financial support to these foundations.

    We are grateful to our extended BIX family from Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Dubai, India, Israel, Indonesia, Malaysia, Netherlands, Nigeria, Mexico, Japan, Jordan, Qatar, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland, Turkey and USA for making this video possible.
