2004 release. "The name Raaja is not yet a household world in the West, but the 61 year-old East Indian composer, multi-instrumentalist, and group leader is ever gaining popularity, especially in Europe. A life-long harmonium, piano and classical guitar player from the Tamil district, Raaja has composed more than 4000 songs, scored the music for upwards of 800 Indian movies, and was the first Asian to compose a symphony commissioned in the West (his Symphony No. 1, with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of London). He holds a doctorate in music, and has won many noteworthy musical awards in both India and the United States."
