NIGHTINGALE IN THE WINGS
It has been a very long time since I played a new thamizh film song in an endless Winamp loop. What a brilliant composition! And what a melodious voice!
The song is "ManjaL Mugamey" from the film ABCD.The first time I heard this song, the voice sounded so strangely familiar! When I looked on the cassette cover, I was overjoyed to see the name Saindhavi. I had the pleasure of knowing this chirpy little girl during my days as a chorus singer. She and I had been part of a chorus group for a bhajan album two years ago.
Her talent has radiated on several shows like Ragamalika (Jaya TV), and Are you Ready (Star Vijay). Also found out that she has sung "Randakka Randakka" from Anniyan along with Shreya Ghoshal (but I could not spot her voice from that song). This little girl is still in school!
I really wish that she makes it BIG as a singer. A newcomer with perfect thamizh diction is a boon to thamizh music! I hope she (and a music fan like me) is blessed with more wonderful compositions.
Listen to her voice in:
ManjaL Mugamey (Film: ABCD)
Poomaalayo PonvaeLayo (Film: UnarchigaL)
(Her voice sounds best only on a good quality CD recording of these songs, not the low bitrate links above)
