Ka Ka Ka Po
Singer: Santhosh Narayanan
Lyrics: Mohan Raja

The album makes modest beginnings with a rustic folk number which slowly transforms to a Hip-Hop freak out number which blows the mind. The local drums join this unique mélange of fusion feast which also has thavil and usage of local harmonium in between! The songs turns to be a pandemonium with 80s disco riffs which stun the listener every moment they appear!

Paravai Paradhuchu
Singers: Santhosh Narayanan, Pragathi Guruprasad, Srinisha
Lyrics: Nalan Kumarasamy, Vivek

The master composer of surprises deliver an outright 80s Disco number with such perfection which would look quite overwhelming.  The new singers Pragathi Guruprasad and Srinisha add an altogether sweet flavor to this fast paced number. The jazzy keys and live drumming create a retro disco atmosphere with an additional tunneling effect which resembles the infamous single Scream by the King of Pop Michael Jackson!

Singers: Santhosh Narayanan, Arun Raja
Lyrics: Arun Raja, Nalan Kumarasamy

It is time to get back to the contemporary sounds which are impressively blended with 8-Bit video game styled riffs and syncopated rhythm makes it even more enjoyable. Thought the song gives an obvious touch of a revenge track, it gives the feel of an arcade video game play with its timely digital loops and masterful experiments!

Akkam Pakkam Par
Singers: Santhosh Narayanan, Mano
Lyrics: Thamarai

A extremely laid back number with the stupendous voice of Mano arrives next. The song has a lazy jazz lounge feel associated with it which is so brilliantly blended with old Madras ambience.  The velvety tossing of Jazz piano with Arabic styled rhythm section is a mesmerizing master stroke. This track is like a one way trip to Cuban chill out paradise!

Bongu Kichan
Singer: Santhosh Narayanan
Lyrics: Vivek

The sudden finale occurs with a unique musical meet up between folk singers of Tamil Nadu and Broadway artists of New York. The curious symphony rightfully gives the classy touch with peppy clarinets an trombone, Such a fitting ending for an amazing album!

Verdict: Santhosh Narayanan strikes again with his unique ideas of fusion music!
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
