‘Moopilla Thamizha Thaaye’
‘Moopilla Thamizhe Thaaye’, as the name suggests, is written as an ode to Tamil as one of the oldest languages in the world. Penned by noted poet and lyricist Thamarai, the song celebrates Tamil culture of yore and the accomplishments across different fields by Tamil folk around the world today.
Conceptualised as a song to inspire and motivate, ‘Moopilla Thamizhe Thaaye’ exhorts the younger generation to connect with their roots and carry forward Tamil culture and tradition.
“It’s a song that I hope will excite and inspire all generations, and implore people to look at Tamil culture and history with pride,” says the Oscar winner about the anthem.
Composed, arranged and produced by AR Rahman, the song also features Saindhavi Prakash, Khatija Rahman, AR Ameen, Amina Rafiq, Gabriella Sellus and Poovaiyar alongside Rahman on vocals, with additional vocals by Rakshita Suresh, Niranjana Ramanan, Aparna Harikumar and Nakul Abhyankar.
