India has reached the global stage and we are being recognised for not just the land we come from but also for the music we make. In a feat that no Indian has achieved before, the music composer duo Salim- Sulaiman were invited to compose the anthem for the upcoming FIFA World Cup.

If that wasn't enough, the duo will also open and close the football tournament in South Africa that commences on June 11 and goes on till July 11.

Adding to the plurastic sound, R&B artist Loyiso Vincent Bala, who is Nelson Mandela's favourite artist, and Kenyan singer Eric Waninaner will perform alongside the brothers.

In the past, Salim-Sulaiman had composed the popular track 'Chak De! India' which had almost become like an anthem while the T20 matches were on. The two composers seemed visibly ecstatic with the honour to compose anthem for FIFA.
