13 artistes from Manipur come together for a new music video titled ‘Yes we care’ to spread hope amid COVID-19 scare; song sung in multiple languages
Imphal: At a time when the whole world is shattered and shaken by the outbreak of the novel coronavirus pandemic, artistes from Manipur have come together to spread hope with a new music video titled, Yes We Care.
The music video, initiated by the Tangkhul Music Forum, was composed by Nobert Khayi and music by William Leivon.
The song has been sung in multiple languages and dialects, including English, Hindi, Manipuri, Tangkhul, Hindi, Anal, Vaiphei, Paite and Nagamese, apart from using a sign language signifying the inclusivity, oneness and togetherness.
In total, 13 artistes from across the state lent their voices and renditioned the piece with one voice and mission to stand united and fight against the deadly virus.
“When everything seems to fail, music connects. The purpose is not to only connect people regardless of cast, creed or religion but also to fight the pandemic together, respecting reach other without prejudice,” said Nobert Khayi.
The song denotes that no matter how a pall of gloom casts in our lives by the pandemic, we (mankind) will emerge stronger and more resilient because we are unbreakable and unshakable.
All we need is a loving hand and find a better way somehow amid the pandemic, it says.
Only if you care for your loved ones, stay home and listen to the inner voice, and hear the call of love, the song echoes.
When the nation need each other
Walking at the same direction
We need a loving hand
Find sometime to stay at home
Find some inner peace within
To heal the shattered state
To find a better way somehow
The sun will still shine
We need a hero to win this fight and say
We are unbreakable
We are unshakable
The sun will shine again
The rain will wash away
Yes we care, we are strong, we will live
Close the door and close your eyes
Whispers in the air in silence
Hear the call of love
Everybody’s looking out
We will find a way to stop
Only if you care.
