Earlier on April 4, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had congratulated music composer Ricky Kej, who is based out of Bengaluru, for winning his second Grammy and expressed his best wishes to him. “Congratulations for this remarkable feat and best wishes for your future endeavours!” PM Modi had written on Twitter.
Kej had won his second Grammy in the best new album category for ‘Divine Tides’. The US-born musician shared the award with Stewart Copeland, the drummer of the iconic British rock band The Police, who collaborated with Kej on the album.
According to its official website, ‘Divine Tides’ is a nine-song album that aims to deliver the message that ”each individual life plays a crucial role in maintaining the balance that serves all equally”.
In 2015, Kej took home his first-ever Grammy in the best new age album category for ‘Winds of Samsara’.
