| Education Jagat - 16 Aug 2023

On the eve of India’s 77th Independence Day, three-time Grammy Award winner Ricky Kej on 14 August a rendition of the country’s National Anthem recorded with the largest orchestra ever at the iconic Abbey Road Studios in London.
 The recording of ‘Jana Gana Mana’ features a 100-piece British orchestra from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) and was recorded a few days ago in time for India’s Independence Day on Tuesday. Kej and the Indian mission in London called on members of the diaspora to share the one-minute-long video as they mark the milestone.
 “A few days ago, I conducted a 100-piece British orchestra, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, to perform India’s National Anthem at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, London,” Kej tweeted.
 “This is the largest orchestra ever to record India’s National Anthem, and it is spectacular! The ‘Jaya He’ at the end gave me goosebumps. Felt great as an Indian composer. I am sharing this historic recording with every one of you this Independence Day – use it, share it, and watch it, but with respect. It is yours now. Jai Hind,” he said.
 The RPO is recognized as the UK’s “most in-demand” orchestra, founded by Sir Thomas Beecham in 1946 – a year before India’s independence.
