One Heart reimagines A.R. Rahman’s North American Intimate Tour, inviting fans behind the scenes and into the mind of the world-renowned Maestro. The film reveals the innermost thoughts of the incredible artist and beloved iconic figure.
The 2015 tour included many extraordinarily talented artists, including singers Jonita Gandhi, Shiraz Uppal, Haricharan Seshdari, Annette Philip, guitarist Keba Jeremiah, violinist Anne Marie Calhoun, flautist Ashwin Srinivasan, keyboardist Karthikeyan Devarajan, percussionist Sanket Athale and bass player Mohini Dey.
Recognizing that something very special was happening as they performed, the Maestro began having the shows documented and One Heart was born.
Footage from the concerts is artfully interwoven with archival images, rare glimpses of A.R. Rahman’s family, and candid interviews.
One Heart enjoyed a successful theatrical release in Toronto in collaboration with Ideal Entertainment, and in cities around the world with additional distribution partners. The film brought together fans across generations to enjoy a truly unique concert experience.
One Heart’s success is even more meaningful when considering that all proceeds support A.R. Rahman’s One Heart Foundation, a Global Indian Music Academy initiative, to help support elderly musicians and their families.
“I feel this is the apt way to help musicians who have given their life, passion and soul for music, and give respect to the work done by them," - A.R. Rahman.
