AR Rahman’s book Reflections dedicated to singers who have influenced his music

The musical genius reminisces golden moments through this coffee table book authored by photographer T Selvakumar

In a new coffee table book Reflections, double Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman looks back at memorable moments spent with those who have worked with him through the years. The book also shares singers’ tributes to the Mozart of Madras.

“The book is a tribute by AR Rahman to singers who have influenced his music. It is also a heartwarming tribute by the singers to the composer, the special man who shared with them his unique and compassionate style of working and who helped them to tap into and discover musical potential which sometimes even they didn’t know they possessed,” professional photographer T Selvakumar, the author of the book, said in a statement.

Published by Audio Media Inc, Reflections will be on sale from July. The proceeds from the book will go to support the charitable work of A. R. Rahman Foundation.

Touched by the book, Rahman said, “Twenty years after my first film, I am pausing to reflect on the people who have contributed so richly to my music. I am happy that these wonderful individuals have been so beautifully photographed by Selva.”

“Through arduous long nights and day-long rehearsals and recordings, my half-sleepy and tired, unassuming and self-effacing musicians and colleagues stood tall by me, sharing and celebrating my success,” he added.

Rahman has scored for music for a string of Bollywood, southern and international films. He made a mark globally with the soundtrack of Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire, which won him two Academy Awards.
