The masterful VijayPrakash was our Berklee India Exchange resident artist in 2015. We were honored that Vijay ji agreed to sing on Sashank Navaladi's composition, "Arz-E-Niyaz" set to couplets by the incredible Urdu poet, Mirza Ghalib. Join the Berklee Indian Ensemble in celebrating Ghalib Sahab today, December 27th, his 219th birth anniversary!
