In the workshop, which ran for two hours daily after regular classes, Freiburg taught the specially selected students the essentials of jazz while learning more about classic Indian musical themes. Freiburg, 18, has often mentioned his interest in fusing these themes with jazz. Says mygooi Chairman and CEO Paul N. Greenwood, “though young, Jared is incredibly talented and creative as a composer, singer and instrumentalist.”

Working with Narayanan, 79, Chennai-based educator, composer and expert on world music, the workshop has created an Indo-Jazz theme song for the Indian government’s CLEAN INDIA campaign. Freiburg and the students will debut the song at the concert.
