Soul India: Padma Shri Hariharan

GRACE STAINBACK
5 pm., Saturday October 05 | $35-$150.
 
[BOLLYWOOD SOUNDTRACK] Ever watched a Bollywood film? If the answer is “yes,” chances are you’ve already heard Hariharan’s vocal chops without realizing it. The Indian artist has paved a lucrative career as a “playback singer,” which basically means he provides the vocal talents for actors who lip sync the musical numbers onscreen. In Bollywood culture, these artists enjoy a celebrity status that rivals the attention given the actors themselves, and Hariharan is a national treasure. In addition to his exploits on the big screen, he’s also paved the way for Indian fusion music, and the Pakistani ghazal tradition of sung poetry. Soul India features Hariharan along with a 15-member ensemble from Bombay, which presents a thorough live soundtrack spectacle of Hindi and South Indian films. “It’s a time capsule to India,” Hariharan explains. “All of these different songs bring happiness to the people in India, and I hope to bring the same in America.” Watch out, Hollywood.
