“Someone trying to use sound and silence to create an art form and cultural activity.” That is how the talented music composer M Ghibran introduces himself on his Twitter profile. After delivering his much-loved work in ‘Saaho’, the composer embarked on a spiritual journey with Think Music India for a new series of songs under the album named ‘Ghibran’s Spiritual Series’.
While talking about his album he said, “We ttling through tough times presently. I wanted to ignite a light in this darkness and that’s how my album came about. The album aims to convey hope and positive vibes to my listeners. It intends to restore faith and connect people.”
In the series, Ghibran orchestrated a collection of ‘shlokas’ and devotional songs penned by great legendary Tamil poets, saints and scholars such as Sri Adi Shankara, Arunagirinathar, Tallapaka Annamacharya, etc.
The music composer identifies himself as a spiritual being. “I have had many hurdles in my life but I always believed in my talent. I like to explore myself by traveling inside my soul and find ways to be a better person every day. That’s how I want to grow,” he shared.
“I felt light while working as there was no pressure of album being a hit or worrying about approval of any director or producer. It was purely out of heart and I wanted it to touch people’s emotions,” said Ghibran who tried to preserve the nuances and culture of the saints’ music while incorporating modern flavour in the album.
The album contains six songs written in different languages:
1. Ganesha Pancharatnam
2. Muththaitharu – Thiruppugazh
4. Om Namah Shivaya
5. Tandanaanaa Ahi (Brahmam Okkate)
