“Abundance in Millets” featuring PM Modi nominated for Best Global Music Performance at 2024 Grammy Awards

The song "Abundance in Millets," featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has been nominated at the 2024 Grammy Awards.

The song “Abundance in Millets,” featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has earned a nomination at the 2024 Grammy Awards in the prestigious Best Global Music Performance category.

Crafted by Falu & Gaurav Shah, this unique track is in competition with renowned nominees, including Arooj Aftab, Vijay Iyer & Shahzad Ismaily, Burna Boy, Davido, Silvana Estrada, and Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer & Zakir Hussain ft. Rakesh Chaurasia.

The inspiration behind “Abundance in Millets” stems from the ‘International Year of the Millets,’ as outlined on Falu’s website. The concept was proposed by the Indian government, recognizing India as a significant producer of this supergrain, with support from 72 countries and the United Nations General Assembly.

The song serves as a musical tribute to millets, small-grained, warm-weather cereals that were once dietary staples in India. However, their prominence dwindled after the green revolution, which shifted the focus to high-yielding varieties of wheat and rice. This marginalization prompted the Indian government to bring millets back into the spotlight.
