Crescendo

My first foray into Malayalam songs *GULP GULP*

K.S. Chitra's "Ariyaadhae"
Chitram: Raavana Prabhu
Sangeetham: Suresh Peters

Well-- here is my honest attempt to reproduce the song in all its entirety and glory.

Good job Meera. Very nice rendition. Your diction is very good too. Malayalam has scores of songs by chitra, Janaki and Susheela which have extremely challenging vocals. In diction Chitra tops. If you are intereted, I can suggest you some numbers, with or without karaoke, which you may want to practice and share with us, so that you become completely familiar with singing of mallu songs. Jo may probably able to give you good suggestions in both choosing the songs and dictional corrections.

WOW! this is one of my fav songs. gal you have a gifted voice.
Audioblog.com should come up with a 'continuous play' option for such songs. Way to go Meera.

Jeevan said...

I dont know Malayalam, but ur voice is very Nice Meera.:)

Jo said...

Do I need to say more? You've done it perfectly alright! People can scarcely believe you're a Tamilian after listening to this. :-)

Manohar said...

The voice recording has blended very well with the karaoke track. All your hard practise paid off- the result has come out very well.

Meera Manohar said...

Interestingly Jo, I do have some forefatherly Keralite roots that might have attributed to the decent pronounciation!!

So that being the case, probably you should reevaluate ehn!?

Hi Meera,
Arrived here by chance!!.( Was watching this song on telly today- 9th of May) and thought your voice suits this song so well and could do an equally good job- never knew you had this tucked away as the very first song - in Feb) Could not have asked for more!
