"IRUVAR" Musical Concert

Dear SPB Fans,

Today, the 24th Dec 2006, i happened to see the "IRUVAR" musical concert featured on our SPB and Malaysia Vasudevan on Vijay TV. Eventhough, the program had started at 5:30, i came to know about it only at 6:10pm, so i missed out on 40 minutes of program. I am giving below the songs sung and other aspects of the program that took place from 6:10 onwards. This is for fans who were not fortunate to see the program today on Vijay TV.

When i switched on the TV set, the following song was under play

Andhi Mazhai Pozhigiradhu (SPB, KS Chitra)
Our SPB introduced some subtle variations here and there.

this was followed by,

Germaniyin Sendhaen Malarae (SPB, Saindavi)

Then there was a dance by a professional group for a medley of song bits like "Megam Kottattum", "Eeiyyai Unnai Thaane", "Aay Muthu Muthu-a", "Annaathae Aaduraar", "Pattu Kotta Ammaalu"

Then the next round was dedication of songs to one another. There were totally five major singers involved in the program namely our SPB, Malaysia Vasudevan (MV), KS Chitra (KSC), Saindhavi & Madhu Balakrishnan (MB).

MV : He sang SPB's "Mandram Vandha Thendralukku". The starting hum was done by SPB himself maybe to help out MV who was not at his best, his voice not like yesteryear's. It has aged and the strain showed.

KSC : She sang SPB's "Nilaavae Vaa" and it was generally good but there was some strain at higher notes. She introduced some subtle variations towards the end of the song similar to what our SPB usually does in such shows.

SPB : He sang MV's "Aasai Nooru Vagai" mostly sticking to the original rendition pattern of MV except towards the end where he introduced some variations in the way he sang the word "Sorgam" and the beautiful pause he gave before the word "Vaa" and then finally ending the song in his own style that he uses for some of his own songs.

Madhu Balakrishnan : He sang SPB's "Mannil Indha Kaadhal Andri". His rendition was not lively and there was no sign of the breathlessness that SPB gives at the end of each charanam. He should have practiced well for such a song

After this dedication by singing other's songs, our SPB sang the final number of the program "Engeyum Empodhum Sangeedham" ending with a different aalapana towards the end and some additions here and there.

Then all the five singers came on to the stage and the anchor (i do not know her name) invited each one to say something about the IRUVAR and the program.

Chaindavi said "Indhamaadhiri Jambavaangalapathi Pesaradhukku Enakku Arugadhaiyae illai, paadavachadhae adhigam"

KSC said "thanks for the opportunity to sing in such a program"

MV said this being the first program featuring them together, he was very happy.

MB said that this was his second stage program and he was happy. He seemed a bit tentative on stage.

Finally our SPB concluded with his characteristic notes - he said it was not just five people (the singers), it was 50, no 500 who were behind the program starting with the music system which was good and the musicians and their hard work & practice, car driver, lights man, junior singers, coffee suppliers, vijay TV bottom to top brass and so on.

As a final conclusion all the five joined hands together and bowed three times to the audience (similar to one that happened in the 17th Dec '06 concert)

(Thanks to Mr.Venkat who provided the information regarding the concert on Vijay TV)
