Alaipaayudhae....en manam

An almost month long un-intended sabbatical and I am back with a song requested by a friend. This gaanam also has the honour of being one of the most sought after songs in classical dance circles for eternity now. Needless to mention, this composition has ARR's style stamped all over it!

Sunitha, here is the song in your honour. So simply enjaay maadi....

Movie: Alaipaayudhae
Music by ARR
Originally rendered by Kalyani Menon, Harini & Neyveli Ramalakshmi
Sung by Meera Manohar & Meera Manohar (-:

Fantastic ..Fantastic.
Very well sung.

Only issue it the Thambura sound after the pallavi. It sounds weird. Not sure if others noticed it. BTW it is fine in the beginning and the end.

The voice split is very nicely done.!

Loved every bit of it...Thank you

Hi Meera,

Am Pradip. Came here through Jo. Well I should say that your singing is really top class. You should be really in the singing business! My god...you sing beautifully. So thrilled to see that you have deep roots in classical music. Seems the web world is having more talented people than the so called music industry! Keep it up. I will be hearing your voice quite often.
Please do visit my blogs. i also sing a bit:-)

I had not heard this one before I tried recorded mine on my blog.

Now I feel I should probably remove mine..how effortlessly you've sung this when mine is so strained...guess thats the difference if one is classically trained. :-(

Well let me see if this one inspires me to create a better version of mine.
