heard your songs on Doordarshan! you are interested in German as well if I'm not wrong. your profile says you are a musician\psychologist\linguist!
I happen to be a first time vistor and a new member of the blogosphere! your posts on music are a bit diffcult to follow(I'm supposed to be interested in classical music but what I know of it you can fit on a pinhead),
I have been posting a series on the ramayana in a blog exclusively dedicated to it.

Really awesome Chinmayai,

I bought the CD Couple of days and already have listened to the songs more than 10 times.

I really want all visitors of her blog to listen to the song and specially her awesome voice.

I have cropped the song with the limits which she has specified and you can download and listen the mp3 format :

I have hosted the song in MP3 (320 kbps Quality) in my friends server.

Bumped into this blog and was quite surprised to be honest! Well, it's not everyday you come across a blog by err what shall I call it. . .'famous'! Anyway, I am not going to lie and tell you that I've listened to every song of yours and they are all amazing(not that you'd care! ) but one thing I'd like to say is the KM title song was FANTASTIC! Couldn’t have imagined anyone else singing it. Good job. Good Luck.

Truman said...

Hey...aren't you the one who sang Yenna idhu yenna idhu Yenna sollvadhu? in the film in which Madhavan acted? If you are the one, I have to tell you that, it's one of my favourite songs. Very beautifully sung :)

Chez said...

Cool Jimmy.. 50 secs of fame.. or to put it exactly... 54 secs.. ARR always rocks in Hindi.. of all his other-than-tamil ventures, my fav is Bombay dreams.. got all his collection... hav to wait till my frs in India get their hands on Mangal Pandey songs..

Wish u a great time in future Hindi songs.. :-)

Chinmayi Sripada /Chinmayee said...

Robbie: Definitely not tough..its great that I got at least that much.. its difficult for a south indian to cross over isnt it?
MysticYogi: thanks :)
Jegathpriyan: Nope I havent sung in A Aah or God Father.
Amit D: Thanks :)
Nishanth: That is Shreya Ghoshal
Yaaro: I definitely care dude. And thanks :)

Ganesh: will check out
Shobha: Yup thats me!!
Magnus: Thanks dude!

Robbie said...

This south indian north indian divide is quite disgusting, I feel that talented people should get an opportunity irrespective of what region they are from. Its a pity that we still have that divide in India. We welcome people like Udit Narayan to sing down south and he successfully manages to kill tamil songs. Dont people often say that music doesnt have language barriers. Hope that it comes true. Anyway, glad that you are happy with what you did and consider it an achievement. Its all in the mind anyway!

Jegan said...

Thanks a bunch for your prompt reply :)

Chinmayi Sripada /Chinmayee said...

Sriram: thanks a lot !! :)
Robbie: Pronunciation is the ke dude.. you have to get all the Dh, Bh, Ph, Bha, right..thats the point. But then everything aside, I love Mr. Udit Narayan's way of singing.. I wish I could imbibe some of it. The way he pumps happiness, naughtiness, and a lot of other happy feel into the songs.. :)And yes.. language is a divide sometimes.. at least in vocal music.. people at Karaikkal started cheering only when they heard 'Vennilave' even though they knew 'Chanda re' is the Hindi version of Vennilave.!
JegathP: welcome:)

Twin-Gemini said...

About the Godmother thing: Thats what Kiruba's calling you on his blog ( :-)
