The National Anthem of India - Jana Gana Mana, arranged and performed by Advait, filmed in the beautiful tea garden valleys of Munnar, Kerala, at the southernmost tip of India. Listen through headphones for HQ stereo sound.
As Independence Day approaches, I am excited to share with you a new version of our National Anthem "Jana Gana Mana" or "Jan Gan Man", bringing a modern touch while still retaining elegance and dignity, as a tribute to the rich heritage and culture that I am proud to be part of.
Please share this video with your friends and relatives, send them an Independence Day greeting!
The first half of this video is live - which means that the video you see is the actual footage of me singing while recording. All the instruments you hear, piano, strings, bells, tabla, etc were arranged and performed by me, as was the high harmonisation in the latter half, and the harmony was influenced by A R Rahman's version.
Lyrics (composed and scored by Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore): Jana gaṇa mana adhināyaka jaya he Bhārata bhāgya vidhātā Punjāba Sind Gujarāṭa Marāṭhā Drāviḍa Utkala Banga Vindhya Himāchala Yamunā Gangā Ucchala jaladhi taranga Tava śubha nāme jāge Tava śubha āśiṣa māge Gāhe tava jaya gāthā Jana gaṇa mangala dāyaka jaya he Bhārata bhāgya vidhāta Jaya he jaya he jaya he Jaya jaya jaya jaya he!
English Translation: Thou art the ruler of the minds of all people, Dispenser of India's destiny. Thy name rouses the hearts of Punjab, Sind, Gujarat and Maratha, Of the Dravida and Orissa and Bengal; It echoes in the hills of the Vindhyas and Himalayas, mingles in the music of Jamuna and Ganges and is chanted by the waves of the Indian Ocean. They pray for thy blessings and sing thy praise. The saving of all people waits in thy hand, Thou dispenser of India's destiny. Victory, victory, victory, Victory to thee.
