Lyrics: Vivek

A new age melody topped with trance beats paves the way for this feel good album. Pradeep’s passionate vocals have a tinge of folk flavor as well with unpretentious vigor. The rightful chord progressions give a feel of English Pop songs meeting a remote folk musician in Tamil Nadu! A straightforward winner.

Mun Sellada
Singers: Anirudh Ravichander, ADK
Lyrics: Madan Karky

The blissful flavor continues with a paced up composition comprising of velvety chord progression. Excellent Rap vocals by ADK. Anirudh’s sultry vocals are another asset for this mesmerizing modern track. The usage of grand piano and flawless string section gives it a classy counterpart as well.

Poi Vazhva
Singer: Vijay Narain
Lyrics: Vivek

The album switches to an introspective mode with an extremely melodious number ably supported with electric guitars. The minimized percussions add a late night effect to the composition which is high on vocalist’s brilliance.  An ideal unplugged number for a lazy hearing but at the same time evokes deep thought.

Singers: Radar, AK, Divya Ramani
Lyrics: Madan Karky

A mélange like composition which strikes a stunning balance between modern jazz, flamenco and Tamil folk- all in one surprise package! The song also has a predominant gypsy flavor with the usage of harmonica, acoustic guitar and foot tapping rhythm. A brilliant listening delight as the nativity is retained with the lead vocals being amazingly rustic!

Adho: Theme
Singer: Kalpana Raghavendar

The finale strikes gracefully with a wonderful instrumental which caresses the listener like a sea breeze. Despite the eerie flavor it emanates, the composition has some amazing counterpoints in its brilliant progress.

Verdict: A laudable show by Santhosh Narayanan! Worth the listen...
