He is called the ‘Mozart of Madras’, but over the last two decades AR Rahman has been enthralling audiences globally with his melodies.
From Roja to Tamasha, the Grammy and Oscar winner has evolved to become one of India’s most celebrated music composers. This music evolution has been wonderfully portrayed by Voctronica, India’s first all-vocal orchestra, in a special video. And the #ARRevolution video is nothing short of magical.
Featuring some of his best compositions over the last 20 years in Hindi, Tamil and English, Voctronica's 'Evolution of A R Rahman' medley is the best way to celebrate the music maestro's birthday on 6 January.
The amazing aural experience takes us down memory lane with 1990s classics like Yeh Haseen Wadiyan from Roja, Kena hi kya from Bombay, Mustafa from Prema Desam, Kya Kare ya na kare from Rangeela, Oh Bhavre from Daud to evergreen hits like Ghanan Ghanan from Lagaan, Satrangi re from Dil Se, Ramata Jogi from Taal and other award-winning numbers from Yuva, Saathiya, Jodhaa Akbar, Gjajini, Delhi-6 among others. The highlight however is the Slumdog Millionaire theme which brings the video to a beautiful conclusion.
Voctronica is a Mumbai-based group comprising of Avinash Tewari, Raj Verma, Warsha Easwar, Arjun Nair and Clyde Rodrigues.
"Our heartfelt tribute celebrating the musical experience that is AR Rahman. We've mashed up some of our favorite and memorable tunes from his infinte playlist into a #voctronicised evolution of the master himself," reads Voctronica's description of the video.
