Yara sili sili - Lekin

Lyrics & Chords

I have to share my recording experience with you. It has been a while since I posted a song here so decided to do one today. Adithi suggested this song for the muziboo meet and I also found a track for this. Recorded my song in 4 tracks and when I started mixing it, I found that it was not easy. Had some serious problems with time shift and was not going anywhere with it. So, decided to do it in one take and had the same problem with that one too. So, am posting just the recorded track alone. If my voice is louder than the music, you know the reason.

My personal comments on this one – Enjoyed singing this but could have sung this softly, breath control issues possibly due to one take recording and please pardon my diction errors. This is not a disclaimer but a comment from yours truly :)

I am going to disable commenting for this one as I will be re-uploading the mixed version of this song using my original 4 tracks. Don’t have enough words to thank Kumar Srinivasan for offering to mix it for me.

Please listen to it when you get a chance.

Uthra ….I really like your own take on your rendition. I think this is a great idea, the singer’s own perspective. There are some minor offs ….but its negligable due to the toughness of the song and since its a 1 take recording ….you have done great. Just felt that you could have raised the volume of the BGM a bit….thumbs up !!
Interpretation is the revenge of the intellect upon Art ………….Susan Sontag.

Here are some of my interpretations …of originals I love


Adithi said

Thanks for taking my request! :) You did very well. Your voice is so strong and powerful that sometimes it can be a challenge to adapt to such soft numbers, yet you managed well. The harkats could be smoother and less classical, if I may say. Also flow could be better in places like "Beethi hui ", “Baahar ujaadha”. Ending humming was very nice.

It is a very tough song and you have done a very good job at this… With little more breath control and proper recording would have made it almost perfect, barring the high notes where you were sounding very strained…

Overall an enjoyable performance

Uthra, excellent singing. With better mixing the total effect would have been really good. Congrats!


Sudha Kumar (back to listen to all of you..) said

Very nice singing, Uthra. Yes, track volume was low. When you do mixing, listen on desktop speakers as a final test. Of course, I had the pleasure of hearing you sing this live…

Uthra, I enjoyed your live rendition of this song… :) and nice to see your post too….
Hahahaha…based on the ‘disclaimer’, all diction offs and breath control pardoned… :D
There is some slight strain on the voice when you did the high registers in the charanam, maybe thats coz its a one-take…But loved all your ‘Dhola sili sili’….the flow in them was beautiful!

Uthra – One of my favs and been on my list too :-). Enjoyed your voice. Noticed a few variations from the original.Singing was good though i felt that at the higher registers you needed to be a little tighter. Also feel wise, i thought the melancholy(isnt that supposed to be what it is?) could be brought out better. Felt a smile in your voice at spots which didnt go with my perception of this song :-). And i thought its sung ujaada ? or maybe my mem is wrong. Loved the way you ended. Nice work overall and hope your sort out your mixing blues soon enough.
