It’s been a while since I posted a song here. I have not been very active on Muziboo for the last few weeks. I was down with a terrible cold, cough and everything that goes with it; ‘thanks’ to the Wisconsin winter.
Anyway, I thought I must post a song since its the first day of the New Year. This song is a very famous and melodious piece composed by the Maestro Ilayaraja. This tune was recently used by Ilayaraja in the movie "Paa".
This song was suggested by a few friends of mine, so I decided to cover it. I am covering a song sung by S. Janaki after a really long time. Hope you all like this rendition. Do let me know your comments.
In the original song, the ending has a cute bit where a child joins in to complete the rendition with laughter. I mimicked a child to include that bit. :-) Hope it doesn't sound too bad.
In a couple of days, I am leaving for India!!! I won’t be able to record songs there as my recording gear is here in Wisconsin. But, I will try and log in to Muziboo to listen to all of you :)
Hope you all have a wonderful and joyful New Year !!! I am looking forward to more & more beautiful songs from all of you as well as hoping to see many more talented artists.
