 Academy Award®-Winner A.R. Rahman
Lakeshore Records has released the People Like Us – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally and on CD. The recording features the original score by Academy Award winning composer A.R. Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 HOURS) and the new song “Dotted Line,” a collaboration between Rahman and Liz Phair.
“My challenge with People Like Us was to score with less instruments, but still capture the heart the film needed,” said Rahman. “I wanted a certain imperfection in the texture and sounds to reflect the characters of the movie.”

A two-time Academy Award®-winning composer, A. R. Rahman has helped redefine contemporary Indian music. The “Mozart of Madras” as Time Magazine dubbed him, has sold more than 150 million CDs comprising of music from more than 100 film soundtracks and albums across over half a dozen languages, including landmark scores such as Roja, Bombay, Dilse, Taal, Lagaan, Vandemataram and more recently, Jodhaa Akbar, Delhi 6, Slumdog Millionaire and 127 HOURS.
In 2008 Rahman gained global prominence with his score for Slumdog Millionaire winning two Academy Awards for “Best Score” and “Best Song.”  Overall, he won 15 awards including two Grammys, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA. 
To date, Rahman has won 25 Filmfare Awards, 3 MTV Awards, 4 IIFA Awards, 6 Tamil Nadu State Awards, 6 Zee Awards, and 4 Screen Awards. The following two years Rahman was also the composer of two more hit films, 2009’s Couples Retreat and 2010’s 127 HOURS.
