Bhubaneswar based organisation Swabhiman, which works for the rights of the differently-abled, released a music album with seven visually-impaired singers from the state.
A group of youngsters in the city have come together to provide young differently-abled singers the opportunity to display their singing talent. Abhijeet Mishra composed the songs and sang along with the youngsters and Susmita Das. Bijay Malla has written the lyrics.
The album features songs by seven differently-abled after Swabhiman conducted auditions between August 22 to 24 at Jaydev Bhawan in Bhubaneswar. As many as 35 differently-abled singers from all over Odisha participated in the auditions.
“Once the album is released, we will try to send it across to music directors in the state so that some of them are able to get breaks in Odia films. We will also try to make sure that they get to participate in various signing competitions at the national level,” said Asit Behera, a member of Swabhiman.
