This Marathi Diwas – February 27 (chosen as it’s the birth date of noted poet Kusumagraj) – an album with what is probably India’s ‘biggest song’, will be released at Thane.
In its maker’s words, it’s the first time anywhere worldwide that over 450 artistes came together for a single song. He claims even Michael Jackson’s ‘We Are The World’ had lesser artistes.
Called Marathi Abhimaan Geet, the song – a poem by Suresh Bhat – has been set to tune by well known composer Kaushal Inamdar. ‘Labhale amhas bhagya bolato Marathi’ has been sung by 112 established singers and a chorus of 356 upcoming singers. It was recorded in Mumbai, Chennai and Thane with 12 sound engineers and 65 musicians.
