After the many non-filmy music albums released with huge success by the awe-inspiring ‘Maestro’ Ilaiyaraaja, who has achieved almost whatever is there in the field offilm music and beyond, none of the music albums are mentioned in the same breath except that of A.R Rahman. The twin-Oscar winner has to his credit many albums and has also sung many of them in his voice.
Who shall forget A.R Rahman‘s patriotic and record-breaking Vande Mataram? The music wizard has, over the years, not only released many such albums but has also scored music for a few Broadway plays. In order to emphasize the need of inculcating the sense of ‘brotherhood’ and a feeling of ‘friendliness’ in the people’s minds, A.R Rahman is said to be dedicating his upcoming album towards this cause.
The bilingual album, though, would have 3 Hindi songs and 2 English songs and sadly, there is no place for a single Tamil number. Two of those numbers would be accompanied by a fitting video footage aimed at creating the feeling of ‘universal brotherhood’ among the viewers and fans of A.R Rahman. As he does more often than not in many of his music albums, A.R Rahman would be singing a song which would also feature him.
Bharat Bala, who forged a successful relationship with A.R Rahman during the making of thevideo album Vande Mataram, is producing A.R Rahman‘s latest video album too which is likely to be released by the year-end.
