Kavithalayaa Productions, founded by the legendary filmmaker and Dadasaheb Phalke awardee K. Balachander, has announced the launch of “Harmony- with AR Rahman”, its first nonfiction digital series which started streaming globally and exclusively on Amazon Prime Video beginning from Au15, 2018,2018.
A musical treat as much as a visual delight, ‘Harmony- with AR Rahman’ is a curated exploration of the past and future of Indian music transcending all barriers. Epitomizing the idea that “Sounds are many but Music is one”, this digital series will be a true celebration of music.
The five-part digital series will see A.R Rahman travel across the country in real-time to meet the musicians in their very own dwellings and experience their traditional art forms. As the series unfolds the lives of the musicians, their day-today practices, performances and teaching of their craft to students, their stories of struggle and the challenges that come along, the audience will get to understand what it means to keep such a rich musical heritage and tradition alive in the 21st century.
Excited for being a part of an initiative to showcase the Indian traditions on a global stage like Amazon Prime Video, AR Rahman said, “I appreciate Kavithalayaa for venturing into the digital age and for carrying on the great legacy left behind by the icon, KB sir whom I greatly respect”.
The web-series is directed by Sruti Hari Subramanian.
