Gems of Ilayaraaja- Ooradangum Saamathilae ( cover version ) - female duet with Sindhuja Bhakthavatsalam

Lyrics & Chords

Of late, have not had much time to record anything new. But one of the bright spots last week was a mini-Muziboo meet here in the bay area. A handful of muzibians and families had a fun time, with George Kuruvilla visiting for the weekend. You can catch a few pictures of that here

This was done more than a year ago and posted on both our audioblogs. Murali Venkatraman did the k-track, and Sindhuja- you are really enviable in this song, period!

Personally, not the perfect song in terms of pitching, mixing and the likes :P, but still thought will post it on the eve of Murali getting married this coming Friday. Here’s wishing him all the very best, as he transitions to the next wonderful phase in his life!

Movie: Pudhupatti Ponnuthaayee
Original music by: Ilayaraaja
Originally rendered by: Uma Ramanan & Swarnalatha
Sung by: Sindhuja Bhakthavatsalam & Meera Manohar
K-track by: Murali Venkatraman



Krishna Tangirala said

Coming back to Muziboo after a long time. Very nice song, Meera. K-track was very well. My wishes to Murali on entering a new phase in his life. And yea, the Muziboo get-tog pics were cool.

5/5 from me.

Thanks Neil, appreciate your enthusiasm to listen to a cover in a language that is not familiar to you. Shows your love for music :)

Krishna- welcome back :) and thank you!

Ramya & Roshine- thanks for listening. Doubt if Murali will be active in blogging for a while :), so will definitely pass on both your wishes!

Sharad Setlur said

Amazing stuff …. I can only imagine what your idea of perfect could be if you are saying you re not happy with this. Loved it!!


Uthra said

Haven’t heard this one before. Nice one by you and Sindhuja. Did you do the Uma Ramanan part? This reminded me of “Kadhal neram idhu dhaan idhu dhaan vaa. vaa…” – don’t know the movie but has beautiful harmonies :) consider it a request :))
Bay area get-together pics were nice. Hope you all had a great time.


Meera Manohar said

Thank you all for your comments on this one! Infact, I am out of town attending Muralis wedding and hence couldn’t get to it sooner. Sindhuja is here as well!!

Uthra- Uma’s parts were done by Sindhuja.

Your time is much appreciated :)

Bharathi Dinesh said

Great singing both of you….Beautiful composition ….lighter version of hindholam!
The voices blended sooooooo well!!
Sindhuja and Meera , You are in my envy list for your voices and the range you have in singing, in Muziboo :D :D
The others in my Envy list (female singers)…….your favourite Rashmi for melodies, Adithi for Carnatic based songs, Sowmya for the versatility, Shanmugi Ravi for the expressions and gamakams, of course, Kuhoo Gupta….mm……let me recollect more :)) getting old these days……
