INDIAN NATIONAL ANTHEM

LIKE YOU'VE NEVER HEARD & SEEN IT BEFORE

A Boy's dream to honour his Mum BECOMES THE MOST VIEWED NATIONAL ANTHEM ONLINE EVER!

It all started with one boy's dream of honouring his mother for the gift she left him with. It is the purity and innocence of his remembrance that various institutions the world over have come together to honour. It is that inspirational humility that has led the Indian National Anthem #IWouldStandForThis to become the most viewed National Anthem on YouTube ever garnering 100 million views since its launch.

For the first time ever, the Indian National Anthem has been recorded and fully processed in 8K Ultra HD using Red Weapon Helium video technology and in the latest 9.1.2 cinema sound format. It is also the first music video in the world ever to be recorded and fully processed in 8K Ultra HD across the globe. Recorded by acclaimed engineer Ronan Phelan on one of the world’s most revered and stunning handmade musical instruments, the Rs. 2.5 crore, 8'11 3/4" sized flagship Steinway D concert grand piano, this piece is mixed by Yash Raj Studio's chief engineer Shantanu Hudlikar, one of India’s finest sound engineers and mastered by Tim Young, one of the world's most revered mastering engineers at Metropolis Mastering Studios in London. The 2018 contemporary arrangement uses polyphonic tones, has heart, depth and a three-dimensional energy to it. It is arranged, produced and performed by Shayan Italia, a gifted  pianist and singer, in homage to his mother whom he lost as a child to Multiple Myeloma. 

The #IWouldStandForThis version of the Indian National Anthem is nothing like you have ever heard or seen before. A remarkable rendition towards instilling patriotism for the 21st century--the millennial age--this 200-strong led initiative comprises unprecedented domestic and international partnerships showcasing a universal love for India, its culture and soul, through Shayan Italia’s touching story.
