“It’s been an absolute honour and great fun working on this year’s anthem for the Delhi Capitals – Roar Machaa. Delhi as a city has tremendous energy, and you can almost never stop a Dilliwala from shaking a leg if the music’s peppy and catchy,” Amit Trivedi was quoted as saying in a statement.
“We want the city and its people to experience the quintessential Dilli vibe through this song. That’s why we’ve incorporated words like ‘scene’ and ‘swagger’, and phrases like ‘lagi padhi hai lanka’ that are typically Delhi. And the stress on the word ‘roar’, a natural continuation from the team’s magnificent tiger logo, essentially captures a quality that Delhiites possess – fierceness,” he continued.
Trivedi said he expects all the Delhites to come out in large numbers and support their team: “Dilliwaalo, I sincerely hope you’re all going to come out there in large numbers, machaao a lot of shor and roar, and cheer on this amazing team throughout the IPL! Oh Dilli re, tu Roar Machaa!”
