Berklee Indian Ensemble ft Shreya Ghoshal - Mannipaaya (LIVE)

Google Rank
In 2017, the Berklee Indian Ensemble presented a landmark collaborative concert with its fifth Artist in Residence, Indian playback singer, Shreya Ghoshal. We are delighted to bring you a rearrangement of the A.R. Rahman Tamil classic, Mannipaaya from that Icon Series concert. Mannipaaya was especially meaningful for all of us as Shreya Ghoshal had not only agreed to perform the piece as a duet with one of our students, Shrivant Singh, (who was in his first semester at the time), she took time to personally work with him on the song. These kind of life-changing moments with direct mentorship with legends of Ms. Ghoshal’s stature are a vital part of what our Berklee Indian Ensemble Icon Series is all about.
