Irish band U2 has teamed up with Academy Award-winning Indian composer A.R. Rahman for a new track called ‘Ahimsa.’

It comes ahead of their first-ever show in India, which will be held in Mumbai on December 15.

‘Ahimsa’ – the Sanskrit word for non-violence, aims at celebrating the spiritual diversity of the country.

Speaking about his collaboration with U2, A.R. Rahman said, “Ahimsa requires courage and strength. A quality that is impervious to weapons or power”. 

“It’s a mission which is most needed to heal the modern world and it is an incredible time to collaborate with U2, with their amazing legacy, to revive this movement.”
