In a bid to set a record in singing great Carnatic music composer Thyagaraja's rare ragas, singer Dr Girija Seshamamba will perform continuously for 14 hours on November 21.

The 36, who had earlier made it to the Limca Book of Records by singing the 'apoorva ragas' of Thyagaraja for 12 hours in April 2006 (recorded in 2007), plans to sing for 14 hours at Maratha Sahitya Mandir in Navi Mumbai on Sunday.

President and Managing trustee of the Navi Mumbai Annamacharya Saptagiri Sangeertana Samstan who is organizing the event said the programme would begin at 7.30 am and end at 9.45 pm.

There will be four sessions of three and a half hours each, with accompanying artists changing after each session and a five minute break after each session.
