Music maestro AR Rahman has many successful albums and tracks to his credit and has been winning the hearts of music lovers ever since his debut with the album of the 1992 film Roja. Now, he has added another feather to his cap by releasing the Tamil anthem Moopilla Thamizhe Thaaye on March 24. The song was created to celebrate the Tamil New year, which is the first day of the month of Chithirai as per the traditional solar calendar followed in Tamil Nadu. The song was released at Rahman’s concert at the Dubai Expo. The song is also available on Rahman’s Maajja YouTube Channel. Maajja is an initiative by the musician to amplify the voices of the South Asian indie musicians and aims to enable artists with direct access to support resources and monetisation opportunities within a vetted ecosystem.
Industrialist Anand Mahindra watched the song Moopilla Thamizhe Thaaye and praised the song. Mahindra tweeted in Tamil, “I initially watched the song after they said that our Java bike has been used in this song. Now, I can’t stop watching this song. Excellent music and visuals.”
