Maathey (Morning Raga-Sudha Raghunathan)

Lyrics & Chords

This is my first recording in almost a month and a half, been posting my unpublished recordings all this while thanks to a nasty throat…

This is from the movie Morning Raga and just brilliantly rendered by Sudha Raghunathan, one of the most innovative carnatic vocalist South India has produced.

This is a vocal cut, so have tried my best to make the vocals work with it. And, fulfilling the request of quite a few muzibians who have asked me to sing a classical number. Happy Vijayadasami to all of you….Here goes…

Movie: Morning Raga
Raagam: Khamas
Dharu Varnam composed by: Muthiah Bhagavathar
Originally sung by: Sudha Raghunathan
Original BGM Music by: Mani Sharma
Leads and Mix: Meera Manohar
K-track: Nitin Dubey

Thanks Nitin, appreciate your time on this one :)

Amazing.

I don’t know much about ragas, but I know that any piece of music, which touches your heart, is great…. Your voice touched my heart… Do I need to say anything else? :)

One day, I wish to understand classical music and some days after that one day, I wish to write at least one classical song… Amen!!

BTW… Who was laughing? Maa Kaali OR durga? And whose voice was that? Yours? It was haunting… definitely…

Thanks,
Vishwa Deepak

Starting la alabanai podhu, swarangalla innum konjam perfections kondu varalaam to make it sound more perfect.

Since the song is more concentrated on the vocal… Overall a perfection venum in every swaram…Plus andha josh illai as in original… Sorry to compare….

The comment above is only because of your ability to re-produce as said above.

Tn Arunagiri said

Hi Meera…nice one! Happy Dashami to you too.

Mani Sharma is not the composer of this composition. This composition is a special type of varnam, a padavarnam composed by Muthiah Bhagavathar, used excessively in dance due to the scope of emoting (due to the lyrics) and the rhythmic complexity.

Cheers!

- Arun.

Meera Manohar said

Thank you all.

@TNA- I mentioned original music (BGM) is by Mani Sharma, not the composition :) I knew this was by Muthiah Bhagavathar although I have not listened to the original. Have changed the credits accordingly. Thanks for the pointer anyways!

My obvious choice from your recent posts, Meera! :)

Being very familiar with the classical version, I was very impressed with SR’s rendition of this Khamas classic.

Very impressive rendition, especially of the swarams and jathis. Some phrases and sangathis in the song could be more polished but easier said than done! :P

I completely agree with George above- you should do more such songs! :)
Peace if possible, but truth at any rate – Martin Luther

Thank you Rajeev, Vaish and Adithi!

@Adithi-think you got confused between George’s comment on FB as against here :P After some thalai sorinjings, I figured it out!

Appreciate those of you who favorited/liked this cover as well…
