Etho January - Malayalam Cover

Lyrics & Chords

Hi All, I am sure you will be smiling when you see the “Malayalam Cover” in my page. I am trying to get over my problems with Malaylam singing. My sister had gave me ultimatum , “Never sing Malayalam”, So my dear Situ… .This song is for you. I have tried!!

@Harry, @Harshan, please let me know if you still find the pitching issues.
Re-uploaded after some corrections!!!

Please comment on my effort!!!

Unni …very familiar with this beautiful compositon.

Beautiful rendition as always…loved your voice projection.
Pitching on Manassiloreeran ….could be better.
diction on January …tamizh accent:-)

Overall an excellent attempt !!

Unni, beautiful singing! very minor diction problems-as you sing more you can erase them. Sing a good malayalam number once in a while to boost your confidence. Liked your expressions and voice control. Keep it up!

Unni, beautiful singing…. :)
Thankfully I don’t know anything to comment on diction… :D
And agree with….who was it….Harry… how do you always manage to get such awesome tracks? Wonderful clarity in singing and sangathis. Don’t know enough to compare with original, but it sounded good enough to me… :) agree on the small pitching and a couple of places where your sangathis felt a little not-perfectly-placed….
What high expectations people have from you…. :) great going….

Now, under a microscope, just 2 nitpicks…….
