Shuruaat: Clinton Cerejo Meets Berklee
(Published: November 21, 2013)
Clinton Cerejo, a versatile multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, arranger, composer, and producer of over 2,000 commercial jingles who is rocketing to stardom in India brings his talents to Berklee as an artist-in-residence. Highly sought in the booming Indian advertising and film industry for his signature Western-meets-Indian sound, Cerejo's residency culminates in Shuruaat - Clinton Cerejo Meets Berklee, a collaborative performance with the college's Indian Ensemble. The program features Quwali and Indian classical, rock, and jazz music from Cerejo's expansive catalogue as well as original compositions by Berklee students. Performing together and separately, Cerejo and the Berklee Indian Ensemble - with musicians from 34 countries and counting - present Shuruaat (meaning "beginning") in entirely Hindu, Urdu, Sindhi, and Tamil.
