Leading Indian singer #ShreyaGhoshal sings her first opera for composer-conservationist #AbhishekRay emulating the Voice of the entire planet.
"I wanted to create a global symphony with no Language Barrier so that the voices of disappearing wildlife reaches out to the entire globe. We have lost 50% of the planet's wildlife in last thirty years." said Abhishek Ray who is well known for the music of Bollywood films like Paan Singh Tomar, Welcome Back, I am Kalam etc.
Shreya Ghoshal and Abhishek have a history of successful film as well as non-film albums together. Shreya had sung Abhishek's evergreen melodies like Raat Mujhe from Tigmanshu Dhulia's Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, Pyaasi -Pyaasi written by the legendary Gulzar as well as the grand Aye Jahaan Aasmaan for which they bagged the prestigious Mirchi Music Award recently.
While talking to media Abhishek said, "'Earth voices is a concept album. It refers to a global issue. Shreya Ghoshal is an amazingly versatile singer. For 'Earth Voices' we have used a different kind of timbre and lilt in her voice. It is the operatic side of her voice. I created a symphony to overcome the language barrier. So that the audience in the entire world will be able to understand it and it becomes the universal voice of the planet's diminishing wildlife."
Abhishek Ray is known for creating India’s first private wildlife refuge- Sitabani Wildlife Reserve and says that if we will not pay attention towards these disappearing endangered animals then even we will soon disappear like them ." I went to remote mountains and dense forests to film the rare animals and landscapes of this grand music video.
