Berklee Indian Ensemble ft. Agney Mulay - Maajhi Re

Sponsored Post advertising Canada Persia
The Berklee Indian Ensemble is delighted to present "Maajhi Re" an original by Agney Mulay.

‘Maajhi Re’ is the phrase used when you call out to the ‘maajhi’ or ‘boatman’. In rural India, villages are usually situated near rivers and water bodies. Often, the only way to cross the river is to hire a boatman to take you to the other side. Sometimes you have to wait for a long time for the boatman to arrive to help you cross.

This song was originally written to promote awareness about organ donation with the crossing of the river and the boatman as metaphors for people who are desperately awaiting help to give them a new lease at life, as well as those who come forward to help them. Agney and his friend, Naveen Kumar, wrote this piece a while before Agney joined Berklee.

When he brought it to the Berklee Indian Ensemble, the community welcomed it and with every year and multiple renditions, the song has evolved to adopt a universal message of community and interdependence. It reinforces the truth that you are not alone and that it's okay to ask for help when you need it.

This particular version is very special, as it includes the amazing Berklee World Strings orchestra led by Eugene Friesen, as well as several special guests.
