Annette Philip

Founder/Director - Berklee Indian Ensemble / Artistic Director - Berklee India Exchange at Berklee College of Music

Annette Philip is a musician, educator and innovator. A versatile vocalist from Kerala, India, she is known for her dense choral writing, concept-rich productions, and delivering on big dreams. A seasoned recording & touring artist, composer, pianist and voice-over pro, Annette is a judge on the American TV choral contest, “Sing That Thing!” on WGBH (PBS), winning several national/international awards as a musical impresario and thought leader. Annette has performed with Grammy-winning artists: A.R. Rahman, Bill Whelan, Zakir Hussain, Angelique Kidjo, Philip Bailey, Buster Williams, Jack DeJohnette, Ysaye Barnwell and prolific artists, Pandit Anindo Chatterjee, Nona Hendryx, Shreya Ghoshal, Ranjit Barot, and Clinton Cerejo, besides being featured on a Jazz Urbane record produced by the late George Duke. A faculty member at Berklee College of Music, Boston, Annette founded the Berklee Indian Ensemble, a viral sensation with over 182 mil. views. From the Ensemble grew an institute: Berklee India Exchange (BIX) of which Annette is Artistic Director. BIX is a creative ecosystem producing high profile concerts, workshops and original content. Creating community through art and dialogue are at the core of Annette's life work. In 2003, she founded Artistes Unlimited (AU) in New Delhi, India, a performing arts collective promoting collaboration among Delhi musicians. With a vast repertoire of jazz, rock, funk, a-cappella, Gospel, Indian/Western Classical, Sufi and folk music, AU became one of India's largest and most diverse youth platforms for musicians with a rotation of 250+ artists. Today, Annette takes this mission global through the internationally acclaimed award-winning vocal quartet, Women of the World. Performing in 37 languages, the singers represent Japan, Italy, India and USA via Haiti, and are committed to learning about world cultures through song; one of the most powerful ways to spread more understanding, respect and acceptance. Annette has experienced the healing power of creativity firsthand through various art forms; music, dance, photography, poetry, spoken word, acting, Saris and cooking! In 2020, in response to the Covid-19 lockdown, she launched a reflection series, "keeping it light with Annette Philip" on social media inspiring her global audience to use simple, proven tools like visualization meditation, breathing techniques, and mental pivots to find and create more calm, healing and positivity. She envisions a "keeping it light" book, podcast, and concert series next to share her message of self-love, resilience and kindness.
