are you able to remove us back to in case you recorded the first music for ‘Chekka Chivantha Vaanam’?constantly, once we get a name from AR sir’s studio, unless we go into the studio, we in no way understand what we’re going to list, what language it goes to be in, what movie it’s for, who the actor or director is.

in a similar fashion, I obtained a name from AR sir’s studio. That’s after I learnt that we have been going to record Bhaga Bhaga the Telugu version of Bhoomi Bhoomi. Lyricist Rakendu Mouli became there and the lyrics had been being finalised that evening. I bear in mind very little of Telugu. So I wrote down the lyrics and asked him for a note-with the aid of-be aware translation.

when I wrote down the interpretation, i used to be like, oh my god, this is heavy-responsibility stuff. as an instance, there are two traces that translate to something like this: like comets that are falling from the sky, these teardrops are falling from my eyes and rolling down my cheeks. You’re literally at war with your own coronary heart, questioning why there is that this desire to be violent. i assumed the lyrics were staggering.

Bhoomi Bhoomi, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam 2018.

How distinct turned into it to sing the Tamil edition ‘Bhoomi Bhoomi’?I had internalised the music, the melody, the metering and its spirit by the point we recorded the Tamil version. Even the Tamil lyrics are so amazing and poetic and containing equally heavy-obligation ideas.

Rahman Sir informed me he desired a certain vibe. there’s that element “idhayam thangumaa”, when it simply takes off into the higher notes. Rahman sir sang it for me to show me what he wanted. I picked up on the vibe.

often, i really like it once I don’t should appear on the lyrics and sing. If I may, i’d close my eyes and be transported to the world that the tune creates. Internalising the melody and the phrases makes it possible for me to provide all my attention and power to the emotions, besides the musical and technical elements.

‘Kalla Kalavaani’ has an unusual association. Your voice reaches the ear like a bullet after which settles into a totally different temper. We recorded the Tamil edition first. We recorded a whole bunch of distinctive portions, but I truthfully did not predict the excessive bit that we hear in the beginning because the opening portion. We have been playing around with the composition and sir become asking me to sing various sections. I couldn’t think about the way it was all going to tie up collectively.
