Ricky Kej & Wouter Kellerman: 
Billboard No. 1 artist Ricky Kej is a true wizard of the keyboard, manuscript page, and recording studio. Kej has earned multiple awards and honors for his composition and production exploits. His projects include creating music for 5 feature films, 12 albums released by Universal Music, and over 2000 commercials seen by audiences around the world. A student of both Western and Indian classical music, Kej composed original works for the opening ceremony of the Cricket World Cup 2012, held in Dhaka, Bangladesh; the ceremony was telecast to over 200 countries and widely heralded for its artistry and execution. For such efforts, Kej was declared an “India Rules Artist” by VH1 in 2013 and "National Youth Icon" in 2012. In 2014, Ricky produced the compilation "2 Unite All" featuring Peter Gabriel, Stewart Copeland and Rick Allen. He also released the critically acclaimed "Winds of Samsara" in collaboration with S.African musician Wouter Kellerman which debuted at No. 1 on BILLBOARD, and remained in the top 10 for 12 weeks.Combining a keen sense of culture-jumping harmony, melody, and pacing, Kej synthesizes cutting-edge music technology and traditional instruments of both Indian and European origins into his work, both within the new age genre and beyond. He currently runs two state-of-the-art studios in Bangalore, the Raveolution Studios, where much of Winds of Samsara was taken from spark of an idea to finished album

Singer Sofia Talvik :
The Swedish singer/songwriter's video was inspired by her recent U.S. tour seen below.Sofia Talvik is happy to bring you the video for her song, "Big Sky Country." The artist was inspired by a year-and-half tour she did, which took her to 37 of the 50 states. That's a lot of life lived, road seen, venues played and people met, so Talvik decided to share what she witnessed with her fans via this video, comprised of clips from her experiences on the road. You can live vicariously through her and ride sidecar with her.
Her album of the same name is out April 28, so let's get to know Sofia Talvik and her "Big Sky Country" now. "Many of the songs from Big Sky Country were inspired by my U.S tour that took me through 37 states in 16 months," the Scandinavian singer told us. "I wrote this song when I was nearing the end of the tour, and I was looking back at all the beautiful places we had visited and all the great people we met along the way. But the song is also about coming home, something I was longing for at the time. I filmed a lot of the tour, making little YouTube video diaries, and the music video for 'Big Sky Country' is put together of clips from the different episodes. It was fun to make because it gave me a chance to re-live the tour a little. It was really a once in a life time experience to drive around the U.S in an old RV for so long." Good news! Sofia Talvik will be back on the road in the U.S. in late summer, so if you dig what you see and hear with this clip, you can see her live and in the flesh.
