The violinnnnnssssssssssssss....................

I am sure anyone who hears this song will never ever forget the violin notes that kicks up the song.

Some common trivia:
  • This song was featured on Ravindar-- the then famous dancing star (apart from Kamal in those days ofcourse!!).
  • This movie starred Shivaji in the main role with Ambika. Thank god for small favours that this wasn't pictured on him!?! *LOL*
  • The singer Raaj Seethaaraman went off the planet after this and couple of other numbers which he rendered for IL.
  • Anyone who wants to catch Shivaji dancing can see Kaalam Maaralaam by SPB/ VJ in the same movie. Wonderful song but pathetic picturisation !!

Movie: Vaazhkai
Music by: Ilayaraaja
Originally rendered by Raaj Seethaaraman & P.Susheela
Sung by BlueByrd & Meera

Meera:

I think it was sung by raj seetharaman and S. P. Shailaja. Just check out the right info in the net.

Right from college days, whenever I have conducted an orchestra, this is the first song we opened with - playing it as a complete instrumental showcasing all the instrumentalists. It is a classica composition from IR which will floor anybody listening to it for the first time.

You both have sung it very nicely. I really liked the contrast the voices provide. Bluebyrd's voice really suits this song. Very nice !

Murali: It was indeed P.Susheela. Probably one of the few western kinda ones she has sung, atleast known to me (-;

Infact, I got the lyrics off her website (www.psusheela.org)

Hi Guys,
Well sung. Catchy tune, voices complement each other very well. Did I detect a minor mix"ing" up in the humming after the second charana?

Meera Manohar said...

Prakash-- thanks for the info. Shall change it the next breather I get! And, thnx for listening in...

Madhavan Kutty-- the minor mixing after the 2nd charanam, (specifically the start of the humming) is coz the k-track was mixed/extended there and couldn't get it to be continous!!

Meera, Thanks for your comments. You are no stranger either. In fact, long long ago, I accidentally bumped into your geocities website and came to know about you and your beautiful singing. When you suddenly arrived on the blogswara scene,it was a pleasant surprise indeed...
I have been enjoying your renditions ever since you became an active audioblogger. I am kind of a recluse, so was enjoying them silently...
You have a beautiful, never heard before kind of voice and you sing with your heart and soul which is more important to me than any technically perfect rendition...So much bhaavam poured into your songs...I especially loved the swara raagasudha song. Truly wonderful...
Keep your heart in your music and we will keep listening...

Chitra said...

P.S. No one mentioned that it was Silk Smitha who danced in this song with Ravindra :-)
