Renowned for his extreme kindness and openness to others, the composer seems in fact able to erase all barriers. Between the south and the north of the country: of Tamil origin, and still living in Chennai (ex-Madras), a big city in the South, Rahman conquered the Hindi language cinema of North India, made in Bombay. Between the music, too. He studied Indian classical music in Chennai, but also Western classical music at Trinity College London, and did not shrink from any mix. His compositions draw on Indian sources, but are enriched with borrowing jazz, rock, hip-hop, reggae. While his nickname “Mozart Madras” may seem excessive, Rahman’s music is always seductive, with melodies and bewitching atmospheres, thanks to his exceptional sound control. and he understands cinematographic language very well,

Since his triumph at the Oscars, Hollywood is staring at the star Bollywood composer, who seems ready to be tempted. The opportunity for him to launch yet new bridges, between India and the West this time.

While his name was almost unknown in the West until the Oscars, Rahman has been a superstar in India since the early 1990s. With over a hundred film soundtracks, he reigns over music that alone represents the essence of variety music in the country.

He is just as praised for his musical talents as for his extraordinary personality, which allows him to overcome all the divisions.
