Sandesh Shandiya’s ‘World Song’ A Reminder That The World Is One
MUMBAI, (IANS) – An attempt to bring the world together amid a stream of hatred and blackness, composer Sandesh Shandiya’s ‘World Song: Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ released on the special occasion of Children’s Day is a positive reminder of a simple message. While there may be racial, religious, cultural differences and more, ultimately all are one.
The composer said: ‘World Song’ is more than just a track, it is a collection of all my thoughts for the world, and my expectations with the younger citizens of the world. We all should spread love and oneness in the world and that is the message of this song.”
Sandesh, is known for albums like ‘Pyaar Ke Geet’ and ‘Piya Basanti Re’, as well as chartbusters from movies such as ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’, ‘Aaoge jab Tum’ from ‘Jab We Met’, and ‘OMG 2’.
The music composition mainly employs acoustic instrumentation, some elements of world music, film music, orchestra, as well as a whole children’s choir.
Clad in a camouflage military uniform, the music video portrays him as an army soldier who travels through the radiant hills of Himachal, as well as Kashmir, Jammu, and Ladakh spreading among the next generation, his message of peace, tolerance, co-existence, and the genuine search for love instead of finding in love in hate.
Directed by Kuber Sarup, the music video takes the message of the song even further with strong and striking visuals of the green, bright, and serene mountains.
