Story

“Like the political and cultural landscape of Gandhi's world, this song has diverse elements and voices, but it all comes together in a coherent and beautiful melody,” describes Wouter.
    Kej adds that Mahatma Gandhi is an inspiration to every Indian — and that the great one’s message remains as relevant as ever. “In times like now in India, where corruption is at an all-time high and infrastructure is bursting at its seams, it’s great to reinforce the original message of the Mahatma of peace, love, and non-violence,” Kej says. “We have attempted to do this through flute, voice, choir, guitar, and string sections.”
