Tuet --Jo, Vidyu and Myself

Yet another malayalam number but a tuet (3 of us) this time.

It was real weird when Jo sent me this song and said "you know what? I don't have an MP3 of this and neither can I find one on the net. So, here's a file which I sang so you can listen to it and learn" Ofcourse I reacted more to the information on this song than the actual song itself!! I had definitely heard of it, but didn't know where and when!?!

I listened to it and was pleasantly thrilled to find that the same song exists in Tamizh (Poongaaviyam- from Karpoora mullai; KJY, P.Susheela and Chitra). I quickly pinged Jo to let him know that I know the song even before I heard the 2nd word in entirety. So end result was I never heard the malayalam version since I knew the Tamizh one.

In the Tamizh version, this is picturised on Amla and Srividya. They are getting together when the latter comes to know that Amla is indeed her daughter. As expected emotional river drowns both of them and the rendition reflects it. So I visualised that scene when I sang what seemed to be Amla's parts since I followed after Vidyu started and Srividya starts in the movie (-:

I still remember this line "mounam polum paadum, kaalam ennum thengum" where Amla is shown sobbing while singing. So, you might find that line a little hesitant, weak and it is intentional.

Now, I am sure folks are wondering this long long drawn out rant about the song. This is infact the anticipatory bail I am taking for that single line in the song *LOL*

Jo & Vidyu are huge success stories in their own right, so guess I shall invite you to listen now...

Movie: Ente Soorya Puthrikku
Music by Ilayaraaja

Some observations:

Meera:
Did I hear your voice crack in "ennum ninne" or just a recording slip ?

vidyu:
I remember the the aalaap following Meera's "thaanE Ettu paadaam" in the first charanam being different from the way you have sung it. I recollect the notes to be:

da.. pd mp gm rg sr ni..shruthi idum

your version says:

da... pn dn pd mp gm ri..shruthi idum


Jo:
Very nicely done.


Overall a very pleasant rendition by all of you.

Loved it Meera. Felt nostalgic. Used to be a big ( even now) KJY fan and this song was a favorite of mine. What a tune, the background, singing etc..made it a super it. Didn't even bother about the lines as the tune was so melodius.

Now, You, Vidyu and Jo have sung it so nicely. Your bhavams and singing style need no comment and I applaud you again. Way to go Meera.

IMHO - Now this in on the top of my list.!!! for a non-solo.!!!

Thanks Meera/Jo/Vidyu

Excellent work Jo, Vidyu and Meera
In the first charanam Vidyu's voice tends to sound a wee bit shrill at times, probabaly due to mike problems. Meera "sounded" the perfect daughter... Amala came live....
