Guiness World Record
The Guinness World Records has formally recognised the achievement of Comagan’s Raaga Priya Light Music Orchestra troupe, comprising visually impaired musicians. We set a Guinness record in April last year by singing non-stop for 50 hours, beating the earlier record set by a Hungarian troupe.
On Sunday, a function to mark the receipt of the certificate from the Guinness World Records was organised here. The 17-year-old troupe performed much to the delight of the audience at Kamarajar Arangam. The audience included playback singer Vani Jayaram, actor Srikanth, Union Minister of State for Railways R. Velu and State Social Welfare Minister Poongothai Aladi Aruna.
M.J.C.Comagan, director of Raaga Priya, was felicitated on the occasion. For the troupe it meant several hours of fine tuning their efforts before they set out to break the record. A three-hour session of devotional songs set the tempo going, with the entire 50-hour period divided into three-hour sessions dedicated to musicians or film stars. Guinness had laid down many tough conditions, including providing a break of only five minutes after every hour of performance.
