Janina Janina(First Bengali Cover)

Thanks to Murali Venkataraman for introducing me a beautiful collection of bangla songs of Haimonti shukla. And today is an occasion for posting this song. Its Murali’s birthday, Happy Birthday Murali:)

I was mesmerized very much by a song, went ahead to make a karaoke track for it. I had no idea of the lyrics then. Murali knows all those songs by heart , so he helped me initially. Later came the saviour, Soumitra ji who was so helpful with the diction, patiently heard my versions over n over n corrected the mistakes. Thanks a ton Ji! Still, please forgive my diction issues my dear bengali friends n correct me as much as possible. I have tried the song with less punch ins n less mistakes hopefully.

Kumaran gave me a helping hand in mixing the song, though sum issues were there w.r.t synching, he has tried his best! Thanks a lot!

Here is my humble attempt of a brilliant song! Listen and post ur valuable feedback!

Kadhal Oviyam(Cover with Murali Venkataraman)

This is an evergreen hit from the Maestro n my first cover with Murali Venkataraman. Meera heard our previous version and suggested harmonies can be added. She was very sweet enuf to sing the wonderful harmonies along with me and do the toughest part – Mixing. Thank you so much Meera:) It was Murali’s idea to involve Vamsi to do the initial slokam part. I had a recording issue and its evident at some places. Here is our attempt. Do listen n leave ur feedback.

Sandeep Narayan - Great talent Indeed

Its a long time since I listened to any live carnatic concerts. The last I atteneded probably was sudha ragunathan's and kanyakumari's concerts during Jan 05. Last sunday, Chandi homam conducted by S'pore dakshina brahmin sabha was held in a profound manner. Befor deeparadhanai, I got to listen to a beautiful krithi rendered by Mr. Sandeep Narayan who is a disciple of the well acclaimed South Indian vocalist Sri Sanjay Subrahmanyan since 1996. It was 'Nee dhan Thunai Neelambari'. It was tuned in ashta ragamalika and sandeep's excellent rendition revealed many ragas like neelambari, vasantha bhairavi, gowri manohari, mohana kalyani and so on. How much I wished it never ended. It is said to be composed by the Great thanjavur Kalyanaraman(SKR) who was well known as innovative student of GNB who imbibed his guru’s musical knowledge and yet was able to present it with a stamp of originality.

Next day, I happened to glance thro the concerts in the nearby vadapathira kaliamman temple and found Mr.Sandeep's concert was there. So made it a point not to miss it. Though it was just 45 min, it was a very enjoyable experience. I entered half way thru sum krithi in Sri ragam followed by akilandeshwari in sahana. Later amma ravamma, the kalyani alapana n neraval I should say was breath taking, didnt realize the transition to swaras, just got the audience immersed. And ended with Thunbam nergayil which unconsciously brought tears to my eyes, later controlled it after feeling slightly embarassed. When I was wondering whether I cud request for 'Nee dhan thunai', it was a super surprise he ended the concert with that song. SO that made my day. I really hope to catch up such wonderful concerts in the days to come.

Adi Aathadi(Ilayaraja cover with Srini)

Another evergreen folk hit by the Maestro. I discovered most of the IR melodies in the late 90’s. I had envied my college mate Anitha sing this song beautifully, its range n melody n harmonies were pretty challenging to me. More challenging was recording this with my son growing naughtier day by day. Here is my attempt. Thanks Srini, you did a great job.

Guys, you all know mixing is a trouble for some ppl ever since. We mixed our voices separately. So please bear with it, listen n leave your thoughts. Thanks.

Vizhiyil Vizhundhu - Alaigal Oivadhillai(Music: Ilayaraja)

This song is one of my all time favorites of our Maestro Ilayaraja. I was very much inspired and could not wait to try this after listening to Meera’s rendition. She was so brilliant. Thanks to her for sharing the track, which is done by Murali Venkataraman. Srinivas has done the Ilayaraja’s portions and his voice has suited aptly to this song. I tried mixing the song myself for the first time and special credits to Srividya Kasturi who taught me the basics.

Anul mele panithuli(Cover)

This song sounded a mix of many harris jeyaraj songs initially and never impressed me. I love Sudha Raghunathan for her classical songs and I listened to this one only after having found the k-track. Initially I though this song is not so challenging, especially when sudha has sung it. But I adored her brilliant plain singing without many subtleties and that itself was a challenge. Here is my attempt.

Thanks to NVK for sharing the karoke track. Thanks to Shrikanth and Murali for helping me technically. This is the first song I recorded with my new SM58 Shure mic using Audacity software. I did struggle with a lot of technical problems, somehow finally got this done. My brother, Rajesh helped me with the mixing of this song. Please listen to it and leave your valuable comments which will help me improve.
