A.R. Rahman’s gift for the 60th Independence Day
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
August 13, 2007
Music director A.R. Rahman has recently launched the Jana Gana Mana album to commemorate the 60th anniversary of India’s independence. Readers may be aware that the maestro, for the golden jubilee Independence Day celebrations, had released a similar album “Vande Mataram”.
A.R. Rahman, while speaking at the function organised by the Times Music, which is releasing the album, said that some of the best voices in India have been roped in to sing for this album. They are, Bhimsen Jhoshi, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, S.P. Balasubramaniam, Jasraj, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan and the maestro himself. About 80 music instruments have been used for this song. This is probably the first time that so many instruments have been used for a single song.

According to Rahman: “the music album emphasises on the economic development of our country and stresses on the need for tolerance among the citizens.”
