On Friday, Oscar-winning music producer, performer, and songwriter AR Rahman turned 56. To celebrate, he announced the debut of his digital platform, “Katraar,” on Twitter.
The legendary singer, who was born on January 6, 1967, is creating new opportunities for up-and-coming musicians. Through his digital music platform, musicians can easily publish their works and make money off of them. Rahman will also make some of his original works available on the Katraar platform.
“I’m excited to announce today-KATRAAR, the #metaverse platform currently in development, is one step closer to launching. And I look forward to sharing this journey with you all,” he stated in a post.
AR Rahman is renowned for providing the soundtrack for several movies as well as for his international partnerships. Director Mani Ratnam took notice of him, and Rahman began composing the music for his Tamil film “Roja.” Later, he also worked for “Bombay.” He took home two Oscars. In addition, he received the Padma Bhushan honour and won six national film awards.
In the video, he also said that the platform was for cutting-edge technologies and would give artists direct income. Bringing in new talent and offering them a platform to concentrate on innovation and close the gap between the old and the new are the main goals.
Soon, this site will feature a lot of international works. The Hedera Network will host the platform, which is being created in collaboration with the HBAR foundation.
