Mayya Mayya from Guru

Lyrics & Chords

Been wanting to do this song for a long time, but waited since there was not good k track available. Even after several rounds of search, got only a poor quality K track. So decided to go ahead anyways….

George has done the mixing of this song, and I feel he has done an excellent job with it. Thanks George!

From Wikepedia:Rahman personally trained Egyptian singer Maryem Tollar to sing “Mayya”, a song which Rahman wrote while on Hajj in Makkah. After he heard a man near a river who was continually repeating “maya maya maya” (water in Arabic), he told Gulzar to incorporate the word into the tune he had created while touring in Toronto, Canada.

This is indeed a different song for anyone to sing i guess, cos of the arabic touch it has got….Here is my attempt.

Movie: Guru
Music: AR Rahman
Singer:Maryem Tollar
Cover by: Jane

This is a very tough song to sing, I guess. Appreciate your attempt, Jane… and it sounds very good. Somehow it ended abruptly for me.

Hope you’ll get a nice track soon and re-upload it :-)

Fantastic Effort divine sister Jane,

Indeed a very very tough song.

You sounded better than the original in terms of the pure voice quality. Expressions top notch.

I love your version. I am sure if you had a good K-track this would have been one of the best performances of such a kind on Muziboo.

I am surely a fan of your voice as always.

RATING:
Infinity on 5

FAVORITES:
It goes straight into my favorites as this has been rendered with so much of care with such a difficult song to render.

Exceptional and divine voice texture and quality.

God Bless You….

Jane… superb… absolutely superb… not an easy song… Managing the pitch is a difficult task in this… So many modulations… Sustenance also have a different approach in this song since the Arabic style. You have done an absolutely nice job… I have heard this song sung by so many on stage. But your voice culture is really different and impressive… keep up the good work… as you said the k-track has problems but no worries… your voice has done the magic… 5/5 truly great singing… Great
Best!!!

Jane!
Real herculean to cover this song which has got 3 singers rendering their part in the original, Maryem Toller, Chinmayee and kirthi. I really appreciate your attempt single handed. There are so many such interesting trivia swiveling in the air about many Rahman’s compositions. Very good and bold singing. Nice attitude. Performed effortlessly. Kudos. Keep singing.

5/5 & one of my fav and so I endorse this as my fav as well.

Thanks & Regards,
RAJ.

Very nice singing Jane. Awesome energy n great rendition! Sum places (like lines following mayya mayya) sounded a bit nasal to me. Some more voice modulations, say thinning the voice here n thr wud hv suited arabic style better for the song I guess, I know easy to say, hard to implement, still cudnt stop saying:)!

Excellent singing Jane! I think attempting this song itself is an achievement, mainly because of the style of singing which is so different.
I think you could have added harmonies to the “Mayya Mayya” portions to spice it up :-) 5/5!

Jane,A tough song to sing. The arabian flavour requires a lot of modulations which you have done superbly. I should also appreciate your voice control and clarity of expressions. Just when I wanted to write more about this, the song has ended!
A 5/5 for your effort.

Murali Venkatraman said

I laud your terrific voice modulations and also the huge effort you have put in covering this song Jane. There are many portions which were beautifully delivered like the “aree…ehey ehey ehey” towards the end. But yes this being a very difficult song, you have slipped in many places as well. If you have the time and energy to re-do with a better k-trk (that kuhoo has offered to help with) please do. People like me who follow your work regularly would really be happy to listen to you in much more clear mix also. IF you are in India, it does not cost you much at all to record in a studio. You must try it sometime.

wo-o-ohh… wot singing….!!loved that typical arabic accent n attitude… BTW did you do the talking part too? (mai seene me teri saasei bhar leti hu)…? From start to end mindblowing!!

Somehow vocals seemed a bit over processed to me, they could’ve come out a bit brighter… Maybe it’s been done on purpose to cope up with the poor quality track…

5 stars for this one, and hope you can get hold of a better k-track and redo this sometime!! You rock girl :)

Amazing moduluations through out which is the life of this song. You have done a great job on this tough number, can imagine the effort you had to put into it. Your singing deserved better mixing though to improve the clarity of the vocals.
