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.
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. Click here to read more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nagore_Dargah
