PM Modi congratulates Shakti on big Grammy win

Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday congratulated Zakir Hussain, Rakesh Chaurasia, Shankar Mahadevan, Ganesh Rajagopalan, and Selvaganesh Vinayakram on winning big at the 2024 Grammy Awards.

In an X post, the Prime Minister praised the five artists for making India proud at the Los Angeles-based musical extravaganza.

“Congratulations @ZakirHtabla, @Rakeshflute, @Shankar_Live, @kanjeeraselva, and @violinganesh on your phenomenal success at the #GRAMMYs ! Your exceptional talent and dedication to music have won hearts worldwide,” the post said, according to a PTI report from New Delhi.

Indian music struck a chord at the 2024 Grammy Awards with five Indian musicians, including tabla maestro Zakir Hussain and flautist Rakesh Chaurasia, picking up the coveted prize at a glittering ceremony in Los Angeles on February 4.

While Hussain was India’s big winner with three Grammys, Chaurasia picked up two. Singer Shankar Mahadevan, violinist Ganesh Rajagopalan and percussionist Selvaganesh Vinayakram, Hussain’s collaborators in the fusion group Shakti, won one Grammy each at the event held at the Arena Sunday night.

Shakti won the 2024 Grammy Award for best global music album for ‘This Moment’. The album features the four Indians as well as its founding member, the legendary British guitarist John McLaughlin. ‘This Moment’, which was released to critical acclaim in June 2023, is the group’s first studio album in more than 45 years.
