Tribute to a Legend 

Posted on

Here is my tribute to a great legend…Dr. M. Balamurali Krishna. Ever since I can remember, his voice and music would play in our home. My dad being among one of his great admirers, I too developed great fondness for his music. His mesmerizing and commanding voice had me under his spell ever since a child. Although I never attended any of his concerts that I can recollect, his musical presence has forever been in my life. I am truly grateful for all the musical genius he has left behind for music lovers to enjoy. Just recently, I had decided to learn one of his very famous Thillanas in Raga Brindavani Sarang. As you can imagine, daring to even try singing one of his Thillanas took courage. Attempting to learn it was literally facing my fears head on especially when I didn’t think I could do it. I decided to put my fears aside and give it my best try. Here’s my humble attempt at singing one of this Maestro’s Thillanas. With great reverence presenting Dr. M.Balamurali Krishna’s Brindavani Thillana.

Here’s a beautiful melody that I fell in love with from the movie Lootera. I love the old class era feel of this Hindi song. It’s simply a gorgeous song! Grab a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy this lovely romantic song! 😉 Without much further ado, here’s Sawaar Loon!

The turn out of this project makes me super happy and proud. This song was quite a tongue twister and so much fun to sing. Kudos to the creators of this catchy song! Happy Listening! 🙂

 

 

 

Beauty of the Creative Arts

This is a gorgeous melody. It touched my heart, the second I heard it for the first time a little over a decade ago. Everything about it is in perfect harmony. The music, the melody, the rendition, the picturization of the song, the actors in the song, all just cooked to perfection. As I am working with background tracks and blending music with my voice at a very miniature scale, I have a greater appreciation for the amount of work that goes into the creative process of producing a music album out of thin air. From writing of the lyrics to composing to singing to mixing, everything takes so much precision and effort from so many people in creating magic that lasts with us for so long.

Presenting to you, Piyu Bole from the movie Parineeta.

 

Love and Light

Posted on Updated on

Kannada being my native language, I love singing Kannada songs. I recently came across this song in my collection that I hadn’t sung in a long time. I decided to start this year’s blogging with a beautiful Kannada folk tune on love. How appropriate I thought to start the year on a love note. This song expresses love is beyond all things and to light the world with your love. Presenting to you, Mallige Hoovyaka. Wish you all a year filled with love and light all around!
