Kamaraj Arangam on 18th Nov.2012.

Dear Friends,

   We are one of the luckiest members to attend the concert of SPB's KAMALUM NANUM held at Kamaraj Arangam on 18th Nov.2012.

    It was a packed auditorium before Our Sir made his presence to sing his 1st song. It was little sad that " MOUNARAGAM MURALI" had not given the proper Intro to our Sir. But 'KUDOS" to the team of " MOUNARAGAM MURALI" for the wonderful orchestration & selection of  rare songs. Most of the songs are very rarely sung in the concert by our Sir.

    Now, coming to our Guruji, Sir needed 2 songs to warm up, he started slowly, but after the 2nd song he was in superior form in singing. Even Murali was delighted, the way sir had enjoyed in singing the songs. It was a Diwali treat to all the audiences.

    The whole auditorium was behind our Sir by clapping, dancing & after each & every song they had given a big round of Applause. Especially during the songs of " En jodi" from Vikram & "Ilamai Idho" from Sagalakal vallavan, peaople were dancing & our Sir was really enjoying. It was a great Visual treat. Most importantly Sir didnt talk too much after the  song. Sir was just concentrating on songs.

    As a Spl. Guest Play back singer Mr. Unni Menon made his presence & sung his debut song " Pon Maane" from Oru Kaithiyin Dairy, & also A.R.Rehman Sister also made her presence & sung a duet song with our Sir from the movie " Indian" ( maya machindra ). After singing the song she said that this is the 1st time she is singing in a stage & its her life ambition to sing with LEGENDARY SINGER & she also said that she is a great fan of KAMALJI.

    All together i am very sure that in the last 2 years, i had not seen our Sir with such a energy & enthu while singing the songs. Its really a treat. Before the last song Sir humbly said that in the recent times he used to close his eyes  when his car enters the auditorium, cos he doesn't want to see the vacant auditorium, but every time the auditorium is packed. I am very grateful to you all for listening this same voice for long years.

    Our Sir is BACK WITH BANG. The way Sir sung everyone in the auditorium thought that Sir age must be just 30, not 60+. Herebelow i had given some of the songs list sung by our Sir.

    Once again my KUDOS to " MOUNARAGAM MURALI & HIS TROOP, especially the female playback singers & all the troop members most of them are part of RAJA SIR TROOP & MSV SIR TROOP members. So that you all can imagine what a wonderful evening you all had missed.


    There is no tv coverage, but they had recorded it, hopefully they will get a tie up sith some channel, when it was done done miss to watch it out.


   Songs list:

1. Singalathu chinna    - Punnagai mannan
2. Punjai undu              - Unnal mudiyum thambi
3. Unnai ninachen        - Apoorva sagothargal
4. Thakida thathumi     - Salangai oli
5. Ammamma saranam - Sattam
6. Vanile thenila           - Kakki sattai

12 Sippi irrukudu          - varumaiyin niram sikappu
13 Tere mere beach     - ek duje ke liye
14 Megam kottatum      - enakkul oruvan

SPB, Chitra for the soul

SPB, Chitra for the soul

It was one of those concerts where technical glitches were overlooked, elaborate sound-checks forgiven and the blistering heat of the auditorium ignored. Singers S P Balasubramaniam and K S Chitra took their audience to a whole different world with their rendition of classics from the ’80s and ’90s at the Nehru Indoor Stadium on Saturday. The concert, Idhaya Geethangal, was organised in aid of Sri Sankara Foundation.
The veteran singers didn’t require any time to settle into their groove. Right from his first song Chinna Mani Kuyile (Amman Koyil Kizhakkale), SPB had his fans up on their feet for four straight hours.
Chitra joined SPB for Aaalapol Velapol from Ejaman for the pair’s first duet. If not for the fact that SPB’s voice sounded just as majestic in the 1993 original or because of his impromptu variations, it must have been that it was the first Rajini track of the evening, that shouts of requests from all corners of the stadium immediately filled the air. Enthused by the response they received for their first Superstar number, the duo followed it up with Adi Vaanmathi (Siva).
Though SPB said he didn’t remember the first duet that he sang with Chitra for a film, as the opening strains of Kaalam kaalamaaga.. from Kamal’s Punnagai Mannan played out, the loud roar from the eager audience confirmed that they had definitely not forgotten the evergreen song.
When the duo sang Naan Pogiren.. from the 2010 thriller Naanayam, not only did they give the young crowd in the audience a chance to finally scream for a reason they understood, but also proved that they definitely are timeless musical geniuses. A must mention is the duet between SPB and his son Charan. As they sang Ayyayyo Nenju (Aadukalam), the crowd couldn’t help but sway in amazement.
Highlights of the evening included a mesmerising Padariyen (Sindhu Bhairavi) and Ovvoru Pookalume (Autograph) by Chitra, Mandram Vandha (Mouna Raagam) and Mannil Indha Kadhal (Keladi Kanmani) by SPB and Anjaji Anjali.. from the duo that received a unanimous standing ovation.
SPB said that despite the fact that they made mistakes on stage, the audience showered them with applause because of the love they had for them and for good music. “The audience definitely knows that we’re making mistakes up here,” he said. But little did he know that with each of the songs, the singers only put their fans in a deeper reverie, making them oblivious to anything but the musical strains of nostalgia.

Singer S.P. Balasubrahmanyam honoured

Artistes should be given their deserving positions in society and their talent should be given due recognition, said poet and lyrist Pirai Soodan. He was the guest of honour at a function held at Sri Baldevdas Kikani Higher Secondary School on Sunday to confer Vocational Excellence Award to playback singer S.P. Balasubrahmanyam by the Rotary Club of Coimbatore.

Lauding the remarkable career of S.P. Balasubrahmanyam, better known as SPB, in the music industry spanning across 46 years, Mr. Soodan said that the artists had to go through great troubles to keep up the quality of their work.

According to the organisers, the award was conferred for the contributions made by Dr. Balasubrahmanyam as a singer and actor as well as his efforts to reach out to the needy.
According to the citation of the award, the singer who had won Padma Sri and Padma Bhushan had sung over 40,000 songs in four languages. He had also won six national awards. He had directed music for over 40 films, and had worked as a dubbing artist, television anchor and even produced movies.

Swami Dayananda Saraswathi was the chief guest for the event.
In his acceptance speech, he recalled his days as a beginner in the industry. “It was singer S. Janaki who asked me to try singing for films. My aim was to become an engineer and look after my family,” said Dr. Balasubrahmanyam.

V. Kumaran, president of the club, Mahendra Dave, Project Chairman, V.S. Chandrasekaran, vocational service director, Gurdip Singh Anand, regional coordinator and Joseph M. Paul, secretary, also spoke.
