  • 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

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.

    Watch the ‘Reflections’ Podcast Playlist on Youtube:


    My guest on this episode is the remarkably talented, two-time Academy Award-winning composer and musician A.R. Rahman. AR and I first met in London over 10 years ago and I recall being instantly drawn to his humility and gracious character. Those familiar with AR will testify that he is a man of few words. It's not easy getting him to talk for 30 minutes straight. So you can imagine my surprise and delight when he said yes to appear on Reflections! I feel both privileged and grateful for the opportunity to share our conversation. We talk about what keeps him grounded; how he maintains his passion and drive for film music; the role of (or lack of) spirituality in the industry as well as a fourteen-hour round-trip bus journey which was all for an amazing fifteen-minute experience at a special place! I'm sure you will love this inspirational episode.

    Listen to AR Rahman and Sami Yusuf’s joint collaboration ‘Light upon Light’ here:




    And for those who are interested, Nagore Dargah, the place that AR and I discuss visiting together, is a place of pilgrimage for both Muslims and Hindus and a wonderful example of the peaceful interweaving of the two religions.

  • Berklee Indian Ensemble - Lullabies: Pizmon Layakinton & Kanne Kalaimaane

    8:31

    The Berklee Indian Ensemble is delighted to present Lullabies - A medley of two songs, Pizmon Layakinton (Hebrew) and Kanne Kalaimaane (Tamizh). The idea of combining these two compositions evolved during the Spring semester of 2017; a time of much political unrest in the world. As a response the many tumultuous events around us, the Berklee Indian Ensemble decided to work towards getting to know each other better through the art we create. Be it race, gender, religion or economic status, we found that fear of the Other was used time and again, as a tool to divide people. And yet, there are so many similarities we share; innumerable ways we resonate with each other, if we take a moment to look beyond the labels that seemingly define who we are.

    We dedicated our semester to exploring the universal human experiences that we all share, no matter what culture or background we grew up in. We watched documentaries, raised questions, conducted research, had class discussions and debates; all of which influenced our arrangements and new compositions. We named the production, Bridges in honor of our shared humanity and the simple yet profound ways we are connected. After all... Almost every person on the planet has experienced rain, sunlight, hunger, sadness, joy, pain, death, and hope. Every culture has songs of love, of separation, of celebration, of longing... and lullabies.

    The Bridges concert featured musicians from 18 different regions around the world, and sought to intertwine songs and stories that connect the 18 countries we call home: Ecuador, Spain, Nigeria, Australia, China, Singapore, Bahrain, Israel, Jordan, Iraq, Turkey, Canada, the United States, France, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and India.

    We thank the original composers of the two lullabies, Leah Goldberg, Rivkah Gvily (Israel) and Ilaiyaraaja (India) for writing these beautiful melodies, and inspiring our ensemble family.

    Lyrics:

    Ek diya tumhara
    Aur ek lau hai meri
    Tal jayegi ye kali raat andheri
    Hum dor dor sahas bator layenge

    Hum dor dor sahas bator layenge

    Tootenge nahin hum haar nahin manenge

    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Keh Do

    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Keh Do

    Ho…

    Hum Haar Nahi Maanenge Keh Do

    Jinke rishtey gehre gehre hote hain
    Unke dono pankh sunehre hote hain
    Doori unko aur paas le aati hai
    Aur udaan bhi aur khas ho jati hai
    Hum bikhara ek sansaar nahin manenge
    Hum haar nahin manenge keh do

    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Keh Do

    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Keh Do

    Woh diye jo toofano se shart lagate hain
    Itihaas ke panney unko hi dohrate hain
    Hum mann se bas unko hi salami detey hain
    Khud se aage jo auron ko rakh patey hain
    Hum suraj hain andhkaar nahin manenge

    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Keh Do

    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Hum haar nahin manenge
    Keh Do

    Ek diya tumhara
    Aur ek lau hai meri
    Tal jayegi ye kali raat andheri
    Hum dor dor sahas bator layenge
    Tootenge nahin, nahin

    --------------------------
    A lamp of yours
    A flame of mine
    Will see us through this dark night
    Strand by strand we will
    gather courage ..
    Break we will not, we will
    Not give up
    Break we will not, we will not give up

    Those whose bonds run deep
    Their wings golden, gleam
    Distance brings them even closer
    And together they soar higher evermore

    A scattered world we will
    Not accept
    We will not give up
    we will not give up
    Say it

    The lamps that flicker and dance
    Even amidst the thunder of a gathering storm
    It’s their tales that light up the pages of history told
    For our heart beats for those
    Who care not for themselves alone

    We are the sun, made of light
    We will not accept the darkness of the night
    We will not give up
    We will not give up

    On the 3rd of August 2019, we went on to do our most ambitious live show yet, a brainchild of Bryden’s, celebrating all the music we love. The show happened on our home-turf Bangalore, at the spanking new venue, Algorhythm by Forum Shantiniketan.

    One of the ideas behind this show was to showcase our journey as musicians, and to acknowledge the various people and cultural experiences that have inspired us through our musical and physical travels, and shaped our approach towards our music, and life.


    Parth Chandiramani, accompanied by Siddhart Kamath, takes you along on his personal musical journey, both as a classically trained musician, and a music lover who grew up loving and being influenced by Bollywood music. Through this flute medley of Roja Jaaneman and Yeh Haseen Waadiyan, Parth pays tribute to one of his biggest inspirations, Indian music legend A.R. Rahman.
