Known for his South Asian-infused dance music, superstar DJ and producer KSHMR has now put his unique spin on U2’s latest release ‘Ahimsa’. The track is a collaboration between Bollywood god and Slumdog Millionaire music composer A.R Rahman, and the iconic Irish rockers.
‘Ahimsa’ is the Sanskrit word for ‘non-violence’ and the soulful track combines angelic vocals from A.R. Rahman’s daughters Khatija and Raheema, as well as a soothing topline by Bono. Created as a tribute to Gandhi, the KSHMR remix dropped a few days before U2’s first-ever shows in India, which saw 80,000 plus fans show up over two days.
The band has also teamed up with four Indian producers; Lost Stories, Karsh Kale, OX7GEN and Amaal Mallik, to release remixes from U2’s extensive catalogue.
