The song is predominantly written and sung in English but the first 4 four lines were written and composed by popular Bangladeshi singer Somnur Monir Konal.
To mark the 50th State Anniversary of Bangladesh, Daniel Seidl, a former Executive Director of the Bangladesh German Chamber of Commerce wanted to organise a "50 Years Anniversary Concert for Bangladesh" which was to be held at New York, London and Berlin but due to the pandemic that was put on hold.
Nevertheless, Daniel Seidl commissioned hit record producer Robert Bartha to compose and produce a song that celebrates the joyous occasion.
This heart-warming track is a skilful blend of up-to-date chart repertoire with traditional Bengali sounds. The lyrics also radiates optimism and a zest for life. If we view the world with the serenity and courage of the tiger, everything will come right!
The song produced by Daniel Seidl was released on 12 February on Robert Bartha's official YouTube channel. The song is also available on Apple Music and Spotify.
