Carnatic Musician and Playback Singer
Exciting Songs (ES) said... Among all those Tamil songs mentioned there I am familiar only with 'Om simoham' from Naan Kadavul! But I am familiar with both the Hindi songs. Considering all three songs, this Raaga should be awesome!Since this is Internet, someone should suggest Hindu that they could include a small 30 second sample of the original raaga sung in a Carnatic tune... That will let us understand the raaga better and perhaps relate the songs to it...
charu, your isai payanam is incredible. So many panthu varali krithis are analyzed....poorya dhanasri intro is awesome....thanksSunanda Iyengar

Though I was very much before time at Vani Mahal on 4th evening, but I just missed due to heavy traffic jam. The gentlelady at thereception table endorsed and said that the programme was for 90 minutes. Yesterday at Ramakrishna Mission Students Home we could enjoy the songs. The soundsystem was echoing where we sat. Returned with full of satisfaction. Had Dharshan &Aarthi. Best WishesBALA & SARADHA
