A R Rahman performs at Nobel Peace Prize Concert

A R Rahman yesterday performed at Norway in the Nobel Peace Prize Concert honoring this year’s winner Liu Xiaobo, alongside the likes of veterans like Herbie Hancock. ARR played two tracks from the soundtrack that gave him worldwide recognition, Slumdog Millionaire. First was Escape, the one which had featured some amazing sitar playing by Asad Khan, only yesterday Rahman conjured up a much more haunting improvised version of the track! The second one was Jai Ho, Rahman singing the song alongside Shweta Pandit, Tanvi Shah and Neeti Muhan to a dance performance. You can watch the two videos, along with Denzel Washington‘s interview of ARR here.
