Hey ! padal ondru...

The Film Priya (1979) happened to be a turning point in the musical career of Ilayaraja. That was the first film to have introduced the stereophonic sound system in entire India. In Bombay there was already a form of stereo system. But was not in its true form. They used to record into mono system and convert into stereo system. More and more gems bearing unheard of novelty were introduced after that trial.

This song “hey paadal ondru” is in the raga kaapi. Whenever , I hear the song, I feel like floating. ”summa Jivvunu..” lol. Mr.Sukumar has a apt voice to suit this song. He put lot of effort to complete this song in his busy schedule. I must thank him for the effort he took to finish of the song with lot of pester from my side.

Hope you enjoy this duet.

Jaadu hai nasha hai ...!

A very talented person who is not very popular untill 2000. “Tu Mile.. Dil Khile” from the movie criminal, is the launching pad for M.M.Kareem. He has done an excellent work in this particular song that makes you believe that a new star has born.

This song Jadu Hai Nasha,the notes and the beats makes the impression that it tells the height of imagination. I am sure, if any other Music director dealt with this song, he would have made it a jazzy item number. But M.M.Kareem made this song live forever. A genius music composer, every times proves his abilities, when he is used. Still there is much more to come from him. Hope you enjoy this song.

San sanana..

Anu Malik - the most successful composer since Baazigar. But he became dull after he lost his originality. The beginning of this song “San sanana nana “ sounds a lot like Rahman’s tunes from Rangeela, especially the musical piece, the Spirit of Rangeela. Alka Yagnik does a great job in infusing life into this song, which is appealing by the music itself.

This song is about a girl's desire for a perfect groom and makes for a good listening. Anand Bakshi is the guest lyricist for this particular song. I just heard this song for very few times and got fascinated. The voice clarity of alka yagnik prepared me to sing this song. Tell me whether, I did the pronunciation accurately.

Aagaaya Gangai ...!

Its truly a joyful occasion to express my extreme happiness about Isaigyani through my blog. Raja’s music is my constant companion in life. I love to sing songs composed by Illayaraja. I have the strong belief that one can improve one's singing capability by singing the songs composed by Illayaraja. He had created an astounding environment with his music and made people to feel truly about his competence and the excellence he'd should in his music.

Particularly this song “Aagaya Gangai “,Ilaiyaraaja has given Madhyamavathi in quite pure form. He even tried to give this song with rare combination of voice of Malaysia vasudevan with Janaki.

Mr.Sukumar, who is a chemical Engineer from Egypt has joined me in this song. This is his first song with me. He is very passionate towards music and I am very happy to introduce him to this audio blog world. Hope you all enjoy !
