A song that celebrates faith, transcending boundaries and evokes deep emotions

Urudhi launched on the 23rd of May, is an extraordinary composition that delves into the intricate nature of faith in India, celebrating the diversity of its various sub-cultures. The song simplifies this phenomenon and highlights the essence that lies in merging music born from diverse backgrounds with spiritual elements. Drawing inspiration from the town of Nagapattinam, renowned for its rich cultural heritage and spiritual significance, "Urudhi" encapsulates the spirit and soul of this unique region.

This composition showcases the brilliant collaboration between Sanjay Subrahmanyan, a maestro of Carnatic music and a connoisseur of pre-Carnatic Tamil music, and Arifullah Shah Fakir, a talented newcomer in the realm of Tamil Sufi music. The artist duo resonates with the soul of Coke Studio Tamil which brings together diverse talented artists and ties them with the power of music highlighting the common threads that connect humanity in their pursuit of faith and spirituality. The unique and melodious duo is joined by the well-known Sunshine Orchestra, who add depth and drama to the song, along with Punya Srinivas on the Veena and lyrics by Krithika Nelson imparting a unique twang to the song.

Sanjay Subrahmanyan said, “This has been a profound and exceptional journey for both me and the talented artists who collaborated for Urudhi. From the initial brainstorming sessions to the exhilarating live recording on a specially crafted set in the heart of Kollywood, every step of the process left a lasting impression on me. It fills me with joy to see the positive response that the song has received, and I hope that listeners connect with its enchanting message of celebrating faith.”
