HBO’s Documentary The Sound Of Mumbai: A Musical

Premieres on HBO® Fall 2011

In partnership with HBO® and New York’s Documentary Festival, artistic advisor Leslie Stifelman, Executive Producer of HBO’s Peabody® Award-Winning series The Music In Me, continues her support of films and television programs that focus on stories of young people from around the world who are making a difference in their lives through music.  By bringing international attention to these projects there is an opportunity to provide a fresh look at the many ways music can have a vital, profound impact on young lives and further prove how our educational system in the United States and abroad needs to nurture and support artistic endeavors as a necessary component in our society.

The Sound of Mumbai, which tells the story of horribly impoverished young children from the slums of Mumbai who journey to perform a concert version of The Sound of Music with the Bombay Symphony Orchestra, not only reflects on the universal power of music, but takes these principals one step further by exemplifying just how critical musical exploration can be to the survival of a child’s sense of possibility, determination and ambition in the face of extraordinarily difficult life circumstances.
