Bhubaneswar: Sports enthusiasts are falling in love with the just released Odia cheer song for the Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup 2018 to be held at Kalinga Stadium here later this month.
The song produced by acclaimed filmmaker Nilamadhab Panda and composed by trendsetter Odia musician, Goodly Rath has been rendered by popular Bollywood singer Mika Singh.
“The challenge was to make it appealing to all. So I decided to make it peppy, rhythmic and not serious. It is a welcome song, which everyone can sing. I feel this was the best, which could have been done to cheer the players. The tune has been set to suit the lyrics. For the line, ‘asa kariba ete bobaal Odisha naa haba global’, the tune has to be energetic yet simple,” said Rath, who is happy with the positive response to the song. While Rath has composed the tune, his brother Kabuli Rath has done the music arrangement at A.R. Rahman’s studio in Chennai.
