Rahman launches a singlePublished: January 28, 2016
Oscar-Grammy winner A R Rahman has launched a new genre of music- a neo-carnatic contemporary single by Ganesh Rajagopalan (of Ganesh Kumaresh duo) in collaboration with the famous pianist Stephen Devassy and popular vocalist Bombay Jayshree.
In a statement, Ganesh Rajagopalan said the instrumental single with its mellifluous sound is a synthesis of modern visuals and traditional raga and is aimed at making carnatic music accessible universally.
This novel and unique piece of music was launched by Rahman in front of an appreciative audience at KM Auditorium, Arumbakkam.
Ganesh is the most sought after solo violinist for Rahman and many other legends worldwide including John McLaughlin of ‘Shakti’ fame.
This single launch is yet another feather in the cap of Ganesh who first burst onto the stage as a seven year old prodigy. A Violinist, Vocalist, Composer and Teacher, he has collaborated with Tabla Maestro Zakir Hussain in many of his projects and has toured extensively with him.
