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.
