By Oojal Kour Dhanjal - August 2, 2018
A.R. Rahman makes his debut as a host in a non-fiction series, Harmony, that will air on Amazon Prime Video on Independence Day.
It’s a musical experience to rediscover Indian music, which consists of five episodes that will be hosted by A.R. Rahman. This features musical maestros Ustad Mohi Baha’un-din Dagar, Kalamandalam Sajith Vijayan, Lourembam Bedabati Devi and Mickma Tshering Lepcha.The finale episode will be a grand performance by these four musicians along with A.R. Rahman.
Each episode will consist of A.R. Rahman’s conversations with the musicians in their original environment, that will consist of historical traditions of the instruments and impromptu jam sessions.
A.R. Rahman said, “The concept of the show is what intrigued me to immediately become a part of it! My aim, through the series, was to recreate sounds from traditional instruments from a contemporary perspective and dangerously improvise. While this show marks my foray as a host in the digital space, I am definitely not a traditional anchor on the show. I am excited to be a part of an opportunity to showcase our Indian traditions on a global stage like Amazon Prime Video and bring this musical treat to their viewers.”>
