Synopsis

This Song Around The World is a folk tune that originated in Chennai, India.  We started the track in New Orleans and added musicians from the all over the world before finally delivering it the people of its origin.  We ended up in Chennai recording and filming vocals by the Oneness Choir.  The result is an uplifting track that has a feeling of perseverance and joy.

    The song says (sort of):

    CHANDA MAMA, CHANDA MAMA RAVAYAA

    Moon, please come (to me)

    NANU YETUKKUNI MUDHULADDU KOVAYAA

    Hug me, kiss me and go.

    NAARALYU NENENNE CESINA

    Though I always sulked and whimpered (making) petty demands

    GAARALYU NEEVE CUPINA

    You always returned your tender-loving care and pampered me.
