Coffee at M.G. Road , Ada

Have to really catch up with some photography. For the past few weeks I have only been uploading my concert pics. I'll be going to Chennai tomorrow for a couple of days and shall hopefully get some good snaps. Blogging will be taking a backseat as for now. Finished listening to JTYJN....I must say , Rahman sir has his way with his voice. Quite dishy! And the much talked about Ada also has a lot of sufi to offer. Parul Mishra ,another 'pepsi can' picked up from trash has rendered Ishq Ada so well. Listening to our very own Jayachandran sir sing Milo Wahan Wahan got the goosebumps back. The last time I had goosebums while listening to Jayachandran sir singing was when he sang Nenjil jil jil in KMT. Hardly two lines but whattaa voice!! Alka Yagnik was one voice I always tried immitating as a child. But somehow she was just gone for a looong time and with her re-entry in Ada looks like the lost world is back. I can never forget the first time I sang with him Kanil kanil on stage . Good eye sight. He was pretty confident of his eyes with that book he held which was as big as maybe thumbellina's pillow!

Another one is Coffee at M.G. Road by Vineeth Srinivasan. The shy, timid and suttle natured lad. Surprisingly whenever a 'star' doesn't mix up or mingle with the common public during a concert or for rehearsals, people in a very convenient way term it as 'head weight'. Irrelevant of whether he/she is an introvert, reserved or even dumb !! But with Vineeth , it was not that way. When he came for our Rajanigandha, 2007 show he was obviously shy and an introvert. But people just liked him . He had this very stange and natural way of impressing them. During the concert he had mentioned about making this big album for which he was doing concerts to enhance the production of that album. But no one had a clue about how big it was going to be. Especially after Malayalee, expections had risen conspicuously. And he has kept his word. As of now I am still listening to Kabhi Kabhi Aditi and hey! that's my caller tune too!! I got almost contemptous calls regarding my previous caller tune 'No woman no cry' which I 'by mistakely' had set it due to an involuntary action performed by my fingers by pressing the * . It got copied and my life became hell. Solutions like taking it off never worked coz of my lethargic nature and ofcourse some unavoidable work. Anyhow now it better be better than heaven with this new caller tune. Adios amigooooo.

actually d song palavattam is d best of d album.its not a very long lasting song.but definitely d most attracting of d album.he really is very creative,not an excellent singer but.i like him.unfortunately his stage performances suck to the core.

Vikas said...

yeah tats ryt.. palavattom is very interesting.. i mean true life of college students in kerala is depicted..so the youth just fell for it...
and hey, kabhi kbhi aditi is very nice enough a caller tune... :)..

Nitish: I have sung with Vineeth, He's professional. If it's pitch outs your talking about then there are many great singer who go off pitch when live. It's no big deal. Infact Srini sir told me live doesn't really decide one's talent. It depends on the sound engineer... stage arichitecture, mic, speakers, etc.

Neha Sasikumar said...

Thanks Vikas...for ackowledging it ! :D

nitish said...

neha u mite b right but i think he takes too much strain while singing on stage and a singer should make himself and the audience feel comfy wen he sings on stage.recordings can be done well even wid average singers and d song can become a hit.but singing a song full stretch on stage widout mistakes and entertaining the audience is real talent.atleast to me.a gud singer according to me should be a good stage performer.performance as to sing the song wid elegance on stage and entertain the crowd at the same time.and for that u need many qualities more than sheer singing abilities.u need confidence,u need charm,u need style,u neeed grace.....
so i think a singer is incomplete if he is not a good stage performer.
thank u

hey, was in mumbai for a while. yea vineeth sings really well! i've been to one concert of his. couldn't stay till it ended though. good that you got to sing with him :)

Nitish: I hope you do not mean that performing is about dancing and a glittery costume.It even has nothing to do with glamour. Otherwise ya when live then you have to 'interact' with the crowd.

g-man: Bombay for what? no wonder..was keeping some space in the comment section :)

V I K said...

I go with Neha on this..U only need to keep the crowd moving .. A smile or the feel that u urself are enjoying signing will move the crowd... Dance, costume , Glamour dont do a thing.. Dont tell me Najeem was glamorous or Durga or even Tushar.. yet they ended up top.. Why? their singing is all that the crowds wanted...

g-man: u in SCT? wch yeaR? n course? myself frm GEC..TCR... doin Mech.. 1st yr ovr...
