However, the interesting thing is that these are not sounds of actual animals and birds, but produced by the members of the musical group.
The group, comprising Alan De Souza, Gary Misquitta, Keshia Braganza, Rohan Sequeira and Suzanne D’Mello, created the rendition for Animal Planet’s popular series India’s Wild Tales on the occasion of Republic Day on January 26.
”Rejoice to the #SoundsOfTheIndianWildlife, our version of the patriotic song, Saare Jahaan Se Accha, made purely with the sounds of birds, animals and nature, performed by a-cappella band, RaagaTrippin’. This is how we celebrate #RepublicDay,” captioned the group.

The 1.42-minute clip, has gone viral on various social media platforms and is amassing praise.
“When the channel approached us to create this jingle using just our 5 voices, celebrating the diverse wildlife from all across India in a patriotic sense, we jumped at the opportunity!” the members of RaagaTrippin stated about the song.
“It was a fresh new challenge recreating the wildlife and nature calls, tones and unique jungle sound characteristics along with a twist of our own,” the group added.
“Many of the sounds voiced by us were done for the first time and it took a lot of trial and error getting them right. These included the peacock, the roar of the lion, elephant, tiger, chimpanzee and various birds to name a few. But now looking back at this, we’re extremely proud to have had this experience and the privilege of representing the voice of the Indian wildlife,” the further said.
