Stepping into the new Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 with a brand new identity, Delhi Capitals – a JSW and GMR co-owned franchise launched their Official Anthem on Sunday. The anthem is called “Roar Machaa”, it has been composed and sung by famous Bollywood composer and singer Amit Trivedi.
“Roar Machaa” beautifully showcases and captures the vibes of the city of New Delhi with its lyrics. The most of the iconic locations of the capital city have been featured in the video. Fans and players are seen enjoying the beats of the anthem. The anthem encapsulates everything that Delhi is made up of.
At the launch of the anthem, Amit Trivedi said, “It’s been an absolute honour and great fun working on this year’s anthem for the Delhi Capitals – Roar Machaa. Delhi as a city has tremendous energy, and you can almost never stop a Dilliwala from shaking a leg if the music’s peppy and catchy”
“We want the city and its people to experience the quintessential Dilli vibe through this song. That’s why we’ve incorporated words like ‘scene’ and ‘swagger’, and phrases like ‘lagipadhi hai lanka‘ that are typically Delhi. And the stress on the word ‘roar’, a natural continuation from the team’s magnificent tiger logo, essentially captures a quality that Delhiites possess – fierceness,” he continued.
Amit Trivedi said he expects all the people of Delhi to come out in large numbers and support their team, “Dilliwaalo, I sincerely hope you’re all going to come out there in large numbers, machaao a lot of shor and roar, and cheer on this amazing team throughout the IPL! Oh Dilli re, tu Roar Machaa!
