Anbendra Mazhayile (Tamil Cover) Duet with Sindhuja


Anbendra Mazhayile (Tamil Cover) Duet with Sindhuja | Upload Music

Movie: Minsara Kanavu (1997)
Music: A.R.Rahman
Lyrics: Vairamuthu
Singer: Anuradha Sriram

Karaoke Track Created by: Murali Venkatraman
Mixing: Meera Manohar
Covered by: Sindhuja Bhakthavatsalam & Rashmi Nair

Almost a month ago, Sindhuja had emailed me about wanting to do this beautiful song. I was really excited about working with such a talented singer like Sindhu, so I immediately agreed. Also, the idea of making a duet out of this song got me interested.
I would like to thank Murali for his work on this. The track he created was flawless! It was his idea to have us sing the entire humming, which I think, gave it an extra effect.

Special thanks goes out to Meera for mixing this song so beautifully in such short notice. Meera, I owe you one!

Hope you all enjoy this rendition. We look forward to getting your feedback.

For your convenience, I have included the lyrics here so that you can understand who sang which line. R - for Rashmi and S for Sindhu. :)

I don't have words to appreciate this. Superb could be least I can say. The only problem (not a problem at all, actually) was that I felt both your voices sounded more or less the same! Very slight variation. Could've spotted the real difference if there had been any high notes.

By the way, are you a pro? How come you get all these instruments to play with you? Karoke?

Sambhu: Thanks a bunch for all your comments. I am happy to know you liked em. The songs I sing are all with Karaoke. This song was not a studio recording.(All my songs so far are all home recordings)

Recording of the vocals was done by me and Sindhuja, the final mixing was done by Meera, she is also an amazing singer, a muziboo member as well.
The karaoke was created by Murali Venkatraman. You can click on their names to listen to some their their work.
Once again - thanks for all your kind words. I appreciate it. Do come back to listen to future songs/updates. :)
