As part of the global celebrations for the 15th Anniversary of Assassin’s Creed, Ubisoft has partnered with Tushar Lall and The Indian Jam Project to cover “Ezio’s Family” – the iconic theme for the franchise, originally composed by Jesper Kyd for Assassin’s Creed 2.
Spearheaded by renowned artist Tushar Lall, The Indian Jam Project is a music collective that recreates soundtracks of historic importance and international recognition using Indian classical instruments and notations.
The Indian classical rendition of “Ezio’s Family” was arranged by Tushar Lall, who worked with Vanraj Shastri (Sarangi), Prasad Rahane (Sitar), Ishan Ghosh (Tabla), Avadhoot Phadke (Flute) and Ayush Sharma (Mohan veena) to recreate the famous theme.
The original music video for the production was filmed at the historic and stunning Fort Vasai on the outskirts of Mumbai.
Speaking about the opportunity to work with Ubisoft, Tushar Lall said: “Having always been an Assassin’s Creed fan, I have dreamt of the day when I might have the chance to recreate the beautiful music from the series. This has been a real project of passion for me, and all the artists involved, and we dearly hope what we have created will be received warmly by both the fans and the composer.”
“We have had so many wonderful and varied artistic contributions from around the world for this special anniversary of the franchise. Ezio’s Family is a powerful and iconic theme for the Assassin’s Creed franchise, and we are delighted to discover this wonderful rendition from India ” said Julia Chourgnoz-Villano, Music Marketing Manager at Ubisoft.
