Vande Mataram is a 1997 studio album by Indian musician A. R. Rahman. It is the largest selling Indian non-film album to date. It released on December 9, 1997 by Columbia Records, a music label under Sony Music. The album was released on the Golden Jubilee anniversary of India’s independence and has been instrumental in instilling a sense of patriotic pride and national unity amongst the people of India. Ever since release, both the album and its title song "Maa Tujhe Salaam" have had a profoundly positive and unifying impact on the nationalistic and patriotic mood of the country.
A critical and commercial hit, the title song from the album is one of India’s most popular songs of all time. Sung by Rahman himself, the song has come to represent a feeling of patriotic unity for India and has been performed or played at several national and regional events in the country. The popularity of the song was such that in 2002, when BBC World Service conducted an international poll to choose the ten most famous songs of all time from around 7000 songs selected from all over the world, "Maa Tujhe Salaam" was voted second. The track also holds a Guinness World Record for being the song performed in the most number of languages. Indian singer Sai "Psychuck" Manapragada performed the track in 265 different languages to achieve this feat. Rahman was also issued an Guinness World Record certificate for being the composer of the original song.
The tracks "Maa Tujhe Salaam", "Revival", and "Gurus of Peace" represent the three colours - red, white and green respectively - of the national flag.
"Revival" is not composed by A.R.Rahman. It is a traditional composition, with lyrics by poet Bankim Chandra Chatterjee.
"Musafir" and "Gurus of Peace" were partial reuses of Rahman’s earlier film songs, "Ottagathai Kattiko" (from Gentleman) and "Porale Ponnuthayi" (from Karuththamma) respectively. But none of these songs had any similarity in the instrumentation or vocals, but had in the base tune, that too only a mere inspiration.
"Gurus of Peace" was the only song sung by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan for Rahman and this was one of the last songs of him as he passed away some months later. As a tribute to him, Rahman released an album titled Gurus of Peaces.
