Synopsis

Shri. Jerry Amaldev, the Music Director with his own blend of Hindustani and Western music, dawned on Malayalam Cine Music in 1980 with hits of “Manjil Virinja Pookkal”. Prior to this, in the 1960s he had worked in Bollywood as Assistant to Naushad, the legendary music director of yesteryears. Later, he took the degree of Masters in Music from Cornell University of USA. After two decades of stint in film music he settled down in Cochin, his native town, as music consultant to the Choice Group of companies.

Passionate about choral music, Shri. Jerry Amaldev gathered a few music enthusiasts from Cochin and launched "SING INDIA with JERRY AMALDEV," on 4th July, 2010. Subsequently, on 6th of April, 2011 The JERRY AMALDEV FOUNDATION, a cherished dream of the Group, was registered. Today, SIwJA functions as the Choral Wing of the Foundation. The Official launch of the Foundation and the Choral Wing was held on 18th November, 2012 at JTPac, and Bharat Mohanlal released the First Audio CD of SIwJA on this occasion.

The repertoire of SIwJA includes Western classical gems of Vivaldi, Handel, Mozart, Rossini and Franck; hits of the Beatles, the Carpenters, Abba, Simon and Garfunkal; hymns in Latin, Greek and Sanskrit; national and international folk songs and the Malayalam film hits of Shri. Jerry Amaldev.

The dedicated singers of SIwJA, honed by relentless practice, render songs spanning different cultures, languages and ages.

Frugally accompanied by live instruments in the best choral tradition, Siwja will be singing traditional Christmas carols as well as popular Malayalam carols of Shri. Amaldev interspersed with nostalgic Malayalam songs such as “Mele Mele Vaanam,” “Mizhiyoram” and "Aayiram Kannumaay" and a few Western Classical numbers.
