Anal mele (cover version)

Thought my son Ayush's serene face (while sleeping) might suit the theme of the song, but he's far from anything serene.. so just a hope, let's say :)

So, finally, getting to do a request from quite a few audiobloggers and a couple of my friends.

Song by HJ, only difference is minimal orchestration, with Sudha Raghunathan as the lead vocalist, and not Bombay Jayashree. Nothing special about the song per se, simple song and nice lyrics for a change. Have always liked this song from the beginning, but had pretty strong requests not to do it, from a few men folk I know. Dilly dallied for a while, then, couldn't ignore the requests for this song from the female clan :-) So, here it is!

This song specifically goes out to Ramaa and Shobana TR. Thanks guys, for requesting this song and trusting me with it, more than anything :)

Hope you enjoy listening to this. Thanks in advance

Song: Anal mele
Movie: Vaaranam Aayiram

Kangal Irandaal (cover version) with George Kuruvilla

Approached George with this song almost 2 months ago, and he fell in love with it, and the result is what you are about to hear. Thanks George for all your hardwork, because I am sure this song to you is akin to me doing hard metal or something! (line copyright George *LOL*) Your vocals shine through,  and doesn't fail to show a different personality in this piece. So, hats off to all your dedication :-)

And, Swarasthaanam completed 3 years in February. So, here's celebrating all the hits and the misses :))

As always, we both have attempted a few improvs here and there while trying to stick to the basic skeleton of this melody. I really hope you all enjoy listening to this.

Germaniyin (cover versoin)-- introducing Mani Ram


It gives me great pleasure to introduce Mani Ram, a co-singer of mine in Thillana, the bay area light music group I perform with. For bay area-ites, Mani Ram is no new face. He's a famous playwright, and a theatrical personality whose stage plays have taken bay area by storm.

Little did I know that he sings until he debuted with us in the year 2007 :) So, welcome Mani Ram! I sure hope you start audioblogging soon.

Mani suggested that we do a song together, and said Kamal songs would be a good fit. So, chose this all time hit of Kamal, and have given this a shot. Please do listen and let us know!
