Staying warm…

Posted in Music by justaroundme on February 2, 2011

When ice rain is pouring outside what are the options to stay warm and cozy – hot chocolate, hot chai,spicy pepper rasam ? what works for you..? whatever it is,I am sure music would be in the background.Allowing a pauper to enter a palace,I get the same feeling as the pauper would and I blast in joy when I hear a Carnatic singer singing a movie song but still retaining the authentic nature of their voice, for me it is like the singer coming down from their high level of music knowledge and allowing a layman inside their world to explore and revel.

Enna Kuraiyo” song from the movie Mandhira Punnagai is in loops for the past few weeks.Lovely lyrics and the deep voice of Sudha Ragunathan singing …

“Ner kodu vattam aagalam
Nizhal kooda vittu pogalaam
Thaalatha thunbam Nergayil
Thaayaga Kannan maaruvan”

– these words soothes the muddled mind and I feel like screaming "all is well"…

Another song – by Sowmya ,quite mesmerizing.Her voice gets into like a silent stream backed with very good music.
