Finally, the world is recognizing the genius of Indian music wizard A R Rahman. After winning two Oscars on the same night, Rahman has now won the 'Grassroot Grammy' award held in the US.

The composer bagged the top prize for the soundtrack in the Tamil film ‘Godfather’ in the 'Best Indian album' category at the 'Just Plain Folks 2009 Music Awards' held recently.

Among the other artists nominated in the same category were Bangla band 'Krosswindz' and south composer Ilayaraja.

Rahman’s composition 'Innisai' (Radio Mix) from ‘Godfather’ also won the third place in the 'Best Indian Song' category while his 'Illamai' was fifth.

Ilyaraja's "Music Journey: Live in Italy" was third in the 'Best Indian album' category. In 'Indian Classical and Traditional Album' category Shweta Jhaveri's "Avishkar" clinched the first position.

The 'Just Plain Folks 2009 Music Awards' is aimed at supporting grassroot songwriters and musicians through networking, education and promotional support. The awards received responses from over 163 countries. It has over 50,000 members worldwide.
