Indian woman in Dubai records 1,000 songs in 1,000 days, creates world record

A Dubai-based Indian woman has completed her record bid to sing 1,000 songs in 1,000 days, with all the songs written, composed, sung and recorded entirely by her, a media report said.

Swapna Abraham, 48, has been recognised by the Golden Book of World Records for four awards, including the "quotidian feat of composing, producing and publishing a song 'live' incessantly for 1,000 days from April 8, 2017 to January 2, 2020", the Gulf News report said on Friday.

She is also going to apply to the Guinness World Records for "the most number of songs in a digital album."

Abraham, who works for a management consulting firm in Dubai, said she wanted to end her decades-long music career by, ironically, singing 1,000 songs in 1,000 days.

"After doing music professionally for 24 years and publishing 22 albums, I still felt I was very unfulfilled as a musician, as an artist. I couldn't understand what it was. So I made a decision to give up music for good and almost immediately after that I told myself I want to do one more very difficult thing and then I will give it up. And that's when I decided I would do a song a day for 1,000 days," Gulf News quoted Abraham as saying.
