The detrimental effect of singe use plastic has been quite obvious over the past few years. There is so much that is happening around that the concern towards using single use plastic is negligent. While a few stakeholders are trying their best to spread awareness among people to use alternatives for a sustainable living, there is still a lot more that needs to be done.
What better way to spread awareness on the damaging effects of non-reusable plastic through a musical piece? Devan Ekambaram, a self-trained musician from the past three decades shares on his latest release ‘NO PLASTIC SWEAR NOW’ which conveys a message on the damage caused by single-use plastic on the eco system, both in the ocean as well as land.
It was in early March when Devan was approached by a composer from Belgium named Isia Vannan who made a song on Anti Plastic which was sung by a European singer name Leila Kaiyar. Speaking to Hello Vizag, Devan, said, “During lockdown, I was contacted by Mr Saravanan aka Isai Vannan who is a Malaysian Tamil living in Belgium. He had composed and written the song NO PLASTIC SWEAR NOW. He had seen my various A Cappella performances on a music reality show and reached out to requested if I could arrange an A Cappella version of the song which is sung by Leila Kaiyr, a European opera singer.”
“So after returning to Chennai, I spent a full night arranging and singing all the parts behind Leila’s vocals and we released the song on all streaming platforms on Sept 1st. We wanted to spread awareness on the detrimental effects of non-reusable plastic and the damages that its causing to the eco system. The video features various montage footage of affected areas and animals due to plastic dumping. Leila shot her portions in Europe,” added Devan.
“It was an absolute delight to work on this song to spread awareness of the negative effects plastic has on the planet. The song is available on all streaming platforms and we hope that people draw inspiration from it,” concluded Devan.
