The album features Beatles' songs written during their stay in Rishikesh, India including Mother Nature's Son, Revolution, Sexy Sadie, Dear Prudence, Child of Nature among others. It also includes songs from their incredible catalogue which were coloured by their earlier leanings to the magical sounds of India. The hypnotic, lyrical soundtrack for Beatles and India was written by award winning composer Benji Merrison and recorded at Abbey Road Studio 2, the legendary home of The Beatles recording sessions, Budapest, Hungary and Pune, India. Both a classically trained composer and a skilled music producer and engineer, Benji has scored music for hundreds of projects across film, television, installations and events. His distinctive musical voice is in high demand and he is known for SAS: Red Notice, Forces of Nature with Brian Cox, Dynasties, General Magic. The Beatles And India film is a unique historical chronicle of the enduring love affair between The Beatles and India that started more than half a century ago. Rare archival footage, recordings and photographs, eye-witness accounts and expert comments along with location shoots across India bring alive the fascinating journey of George, John, Paul and Ringo from their high octane celebrity lives in the West to a remote Himalayan ashram in search of spiritual bliss that inspires an unprecedented burst of creative songwriting. It is the firstserious exploration of how India shaped the development of the greatest ever rock band and their own pioneering role bridging two vastly different cultures.
