DUBAI: An Indian-origin woman in Dubai has achieved a unique musical milestone after she written, composed, sung and recorded 1,000 songs in 1,000 days.
Swapna Abraham works at a management consulting firm in Dubai, completed her record of 1,000 songs in 1,000 days on January 2.
The 48-year-old has been recognized by the Golden Book of World Records for four awards, including the “quotidian feat of composing, producing and publishing a song ‘live’ incessantly for 1,000 days from April 8, 2017, to January 2, 2020.”
It’s not an easy job to achieve such a feat.
Abraham used to sleep by 8 pm so she could rise by 3.30 am to record her songs between 4 am and 6 am at a venue before heading to work.
There was a time when she recorded her song outside an airport manager’s office while running late for a flight.
“Most of my songs are about life, relationships, values and the state of the world. They are affirming songs that speak to people. My music has to have a message. I don’t do demeaning songs or use derogatory language. And I don’t sing songs just for songs,” Abraham said, according to a Dubai daily.
