Bengaluru: Music composer Ricky Kej, based out of Bengaluru, has won his third Grammy Award for the album ‘Divine Tides’ and dedicated the honour to his home country, India.

The US-born musician shared the award with Stewart Copeland, the drummer of the iconic British rock band The Police, who collaborated with Kej on the album. At the 65th Annual Grammy Awards, the duo earned the gramophone trophy in the best immersive audio album winner category. They had won a Grammy in the best new age album category for the same album last year. The composer picked up his career’s third Grammy for ‘Divine Tides’.

Sharing his happiness right after the win, Ricky posted a picture and wrote: “Super grateful, my 3rd Grammy Award.” In a statement shared with the media, Ricky Kej said: “It feels absolutely surreal to win the biggest prize in music again for the third time. I am extremely grateful to have had another opportunity to make my country India proud by achieving this on the biggest platform in the world for music.”

He added, “I’d like to thank the Recording Academy for this honour, my collaborators Stewart Copeland, Herbert Waltl, Eric Schilling, and everyone else who made this album possible.” ‘Divine Tides’ is a nine-song album that aims to deliver the message that each individual’s life plays a crucial role in maintaining the balance that serves all equally.
