MCAI gifts a new rendition of Vande Matram on Independence Day

MUMBAI: On the occasion of the 74th Independence Day, The Music Composers Association of India (MCAI) has gifted the nation a new rendition of the eternal Indian national song Vande Mataram which was composed by Bankim Chandra. What makes the new composition unique and different is that it has been put together by 100 leading music composers across India at a time when the nation is battling with rising cases of Covid19.

“The nation needs positivity and hope,” says Aashish Rego. “We have gone through some of the toughest times in a century. It was about a 115 years ago that Vande Mataram became a clarion call that rallied Indians in their fight against British rule. We hope our version will galvanise all Indians together to emerge as a new rapidly rising nation in the spirit of Creation, Collaboration, Contribution and Celebration. It is time to move ahead as collaborators and not competitors as all 100 of us have done, in this song, to create something greater than the individual.”

The song is conceived and composed by Aashish Rego with lyrics by Vipin Mishra, co-produced by Somesh Mathur, Executive Producer- Anil Wanvari.
