Ooradangum saamaththile

This rustic Ilaiyaraja number seems to have been quite an obscure one. A seemingly simple song, it has the beautiful voices of Swarnalatha and Uma Ramanan, filled with expressiveness and vocal nuances.
Murali created a karaoke track for this and suggested that Meera and I do it. Meera, an ardent Swarnalatha fan has taken on her parts and I have sung Uma's parts :)
It has been quite interesting to adapt to the song and imbibe both their renditional subtleties.

Working on a song with Meera for the first time (female duets don't happen very often!) and its been a really nice experience indeed. It was also great to finally meet her in person last month! :)

Do let us know how you think we have fared in this one...

Song: Ooradangum saamaththile
Music: Ilaiyaraja
Singers: Swarnalatha, Uma Ramanan
Movie: Pudhupatti ponnuthaayi

(Can someone help with info on the lyricist?)

Download here.


Also do check out Jo's version of Main agar kahoon from Om Shanti Om on his blog, in which I've sung Shreya's lines :)

Simply soothing. I could feel the emotions in the song. Excellent try and it came out very good.

Nice song Sindhu.... Your combo with Meera is too good. Good job by Murali for Karoke... Looking like the song is sung by some professional singers. All the BEST.

Nice melody.
And well sung by both of you.
I guess it is based on Raag suddha Dhanyasi ?

It was amazing working with you as well Sindhuja :)

And even better now since I can put a face to that beautiful voice of yours. It was indeed very nice to meet you a couple of months ago!!

Looking fwd to having you here sometime
