Tackling one as historically rich as Indian music might seem like a mammoth task, but it is an endeavor the Berklee Indian Ensemble has spent the past decade mastering – and they have amassed an audience of millions in the process.

About the Berklee Indian Ensemble
Founded in 2011 by Annette Philip, the first Indian musician appointed as a faculty member at Berklee College of Music, the Berklee Indian Ensemble is a world renowned collective, known for its global Indian sound that honors traditions while boldly experimenting with a cross pollination of genres, cultures, and multidisciplinary art forms. A viral sensation with nearly 300 million views (accounting for 70% of Berklee’s total YouTube views), the Ensemble was in such high demand globally that it organically transitioned into a professional band in 2021, marking the Ensemble’s ten year anniversary. This pro entity is led by 11 full-time members representing India, Jordan, Iraq, Israel, Nigeria, Indonesia, Norway, the USA, and other regions across the globe.
