"pratirAtri vasaMta rAtri" - A "Ghantasala-SPB" duet

Dear SPB Fans,

Here is a beautiful duet by "Ghantasala - SPB" from the Telugu Movie "Ekaveera" (1969) which featured NTR, Kanta Rao, Jamuna & KR Vijaya. Music by
K V Mahadevan. Lyrics by Devulapalli Krishna Sastry.

I was all along wondering whether the Student (SPB) had ever sung with the Master (Ghantasala) and by serendipity, I stumbled on this song.

The student starts off the song with a humming and the Master joins in and from there on, it is a beautiful trip down music lane. SPB sings the first Pallavi followed by Ghantasala. Then the first Charanam is handled by Ghantasala and SPB follows next singing the second Charanam and then in the climax of the song both join together and complete a beautiful song. Our SPB's youthful & nascent voice combines well with the matured voice of the Master and together provides us with a unique musical treat for our ears. I presume that the Master would have sung for NTR and our SPB for Kanta Rao (?).
