Song : Oru Murai
Singers : K J Yesudas and K S Chitra
Music : M G Radhakrishnan
Movie : Manichitrathazha
I am very happy to present this song with Pradip Somasundaram who was the first person to learn this song from M.G Radhakrishnan and the first person to sing this song along with the live orchestra at Kodandapani Studio (S.P.B’s own studio at Saligramam). He had to sing this in a single take from start to end as he was singing for the orchestra to prapare the track. Later Chitra and K.J.Y dubbed their voices.
You can hear that very first original take here
And one more fact. “Ouseppachan” the famous Malayalee composer played violin along with the 30 member violinist group in all the songs for this film.And it was L. Vaidyanathan (from L.Shankar, L.Subramaniam, L.Vaidyanathan trio) who set the background music for the songs in the film. M.G Radhakrishnan just tuned the songs!!!
Special thanx to NVK sir for passing me the K Track:)
