I had posted this song earlier in my blog with a different title! The audio hosting was completely screwed up during that time and many folks had complained about not being able to listen to this track. So I decided to remove the previous post and write a fresh post for the song.

This song is very close to us (f6 - me & ganesh). This is the first song that we worked with Swamy. Swamy once had asked us if we could work with him in arranging this cute little song that he had written for his son Skanda. He even had the tune ready with him! What made us love this song almost instantaneously was the beauty of the poem with very simple words but filled with a lot of love.

We recorded this track in one go with Ganesh playing the keys and backing and me singing. Nothing was planned! Neither the interludes nor the chords / backing. It was all impromptu. (Many folks who heard the 1st interlude of the track pointed out its similarity to "en kaadhale..." from duet's first interlude :) We dont deny it! haha!)

Do listen to this track and let us know ur opinion. This is not production quality, the recording might not be the best u have heard!

Harish
Wonderful lyrics by Swamy brings out a father's exuberant affection towards their child.
Nice tune, with raag desh and nilamabri mixed together.

Well sung

Harish,

The Des Neelambari combo is truly 'Divine'. I listened to this song several times this weekend.

My entire family loves it!

Thanks for a beautiful song.

The theme is good .. The voice is great and the music is good.. some comments (if you ask me what needs to be improved)
- the lyrics
- the voice is not for lullaby..:)
- the ending of the song needs to be changed :)

good luck!!
