Maru Kelara (Kaadhu Kekkadhura) - My first asttempt to Singing!

After gaining inspiration from KK, I decided to try my hand in singing too. For after all, I know how brave todays youngsters are. Folks with a light heart, and heavy blood pressure please stay out of this! I've tried to sing a Classical song - dint have any good software to record that so used Windows Sound Recorder!! If you know some good audio recording software's do let me know!

Song title: Marukelara
Raagam: Jayanthashree
Thalam: Adi

I've absolutely no ideas about classical music, and am a big zero in classical music, but still wanted to give a try, so music gurus, forgive for the horror you are about to hear!

Nice. You do have a nice voice. Keep posting more

I would like to point out that it's "marugelara oh raghava". It's easy to confuse because Tamil script doesn't distinguish between these sounds

I appreciate it.pattu mela ivalo asainna kathukka arambingo.Keep learning and practice.--SKM

Kalakkareenga... Your introduction of Carnatic knowledge was honest. Considering that you do not have basic carnatic knowledge you have sung well. I appreciate your interest. Keep it up.

Hey Prasanna,

You have an awesome voice, you are very talented, keep up the practise and I hope to hear some more stuff soon! :)


At 10:17 AM, Blogger Alan

Prasanna, the voice sounds pretty good. Reminds me of the Hindu priests (not sure of the right word) singing in the movies. I can't carry a tune at all. Keep it up!


At 6:22 AM, Blogger indianangel

@ amit: thank you sir! will definitely learn music whenever I have time!

@ alan: thank you! that was so kind of you stop at my blog!
