Long time since I heard this song – Wonderful rendition Murali. Very clean sangathis.

The vocals are not equally balanced between left and right in the mix.

Happy Onam !!

Kumar : Glad that you liked it. I will look into mixing once again. Thanks for pointing it out.

Hi Murali … nice rendition of a festive song … loved the melody and you have sung well … your voice was clear and in the front … and I really enjoyed it.

If I were to suggest something it would be this: You could sing more relaxed actually to bring out a mature delivery. I can sense that the mouth is not totally relaxed in its delivery … some people actually say to look in the mirror and practice singing … I have tried it and it does help but even I have not pursued it that much, but I think it works!. Because of this slight tension all notes will be pitched very very fractionally upwards … the real delight is in the notes just touching the desired frequency rather than enveloping it totally. I feel that there is mamoth potential for you if you try to pull back a bit … your curves and sangathis will sound even more awesome….this is a good one…and I enjoyed it.

Happy Onam!.

Happy Onam Murali!

Very well sung, really enjoyed it … apt for the occassion.



Radhika Nair (away) said

Good pick, Murali. Reminded me a lot of Kerala and the days when songs from this album used to be a huge hit in almost all school/college festivals- Very well sung. In the mix, I too felt an imbalance in panning. Happy Onam.

Beautiful rendition, Murali! Crisp sangathis and lovely expressions. Your voice seemed a bit strained in some places though. Not qualified to say much about the mixing.

Overall, a very enjoyable rendition.

Lovely work Murali……good job with the rendition !!



Unnikrishnan Kb said

I should say that you have sung it well but this song is not your type… “Just in my view point”. Your voice culture can make magic with some songs but not this one. For some reason, which Im not able to explain…… i didn’t found the charm in this.
But your singing is flawless as always…
nice work…great…Great


Sonu Kanna said
