“Suchetha Satish from Kerala etched her name in music history"
A Kerala teenager has carved a name for herself in the Guinness Book of World Records by singing in a whopping 140 languages.
Footage of 18-year-old Suchetha Satish singing at an event has surfaced online.
The event took place on November 24, 2023, in Dubai, where Suchetha wowed judges with her singing skills.
Suchetha sang in 140 languages to raise awareness for climate change at the Indian Consulate Auditorium in Dubai.
The number 140 represented the same number of countries that attended the summit.
She has now been recognised for her singing skills.
A snippet of Suchetha’s singing was shared on the All India Radio Instagram page with a caption that read:
“Suchetha Satish from Kerala etched her name in music history by setting a new world record for singing in the most languages during a single concert.
“Guinness Book of World Records officially attested to this feat earlier this week.
“The remarkable achievement took place at the Indian Consulate Auditorium in Dubai, UAE.”
The teenager was congratulated on her achievement and one comment stated:
“So versatile, mellifluous, soothing and excellent voice quality. A great asset to India and we are so proud of having such a talent in multilingual singing.
“Great to have her with such superlative skills. Cheers.”
Suchetha’s performance consisted of singing in 29 Indian and 91 international languages, followed by a Sanskrit song ‘Janki Jane’.
Her performance ended with a Hindi song which was written by her mother Sumitha Ayilliath and composed by Monty Sharma.
Suchetha shared the news on Instagram with her followers and said:
“Happy to share the news that by God’s grace, I have set a new Guinness World Record by singing in 140 languages in 9 hours, on November 24th, 2024, during my concert by Climate.
“Thank you all for your wishes and support.”

Since sharing the news, Suchetha received multiple messages of congratulations and was requested to continue singing.
In a previous attempt, Suchetha competed in Music Beyond Borders and broke the record of another singer who had sung in 76 languages in 2008.
Suchetha’s talent was recognised at the young age of three by her parents.
It is said that she began singing in different languages after she heard a guest at her house singing a Japanese song which sparked her interest.
She astonished the guests by learning the lyrics in a matter of hours and proceeding to sing for them.
