Concerts of Raaja

Saw YouTubes of SPB, KJY, Chitra and Hariharan talking about the Canada concert on Nov 3rd. Those who are going - blessed art thou.

Can't wait to.. well watch it on Vijay TV Sad

Hi Nerd sir,
Nice to get an opportunity to get in a forum with you again!

Please visit us when you happen to be in the metro Detroit area in the near future...

My son is right now playing his guitar the song "you're beautiful" :-)

While I'm listening to NEPV songs on the Bose multimedia speakers...

Few more days without girls in the house Laughing

Please keep posting!

Unfortunately, all I saw was Seeman's "pOgAdhE" youtube video for this concert. Unfortuante that some people are putting a political mulaam on IR's concert. Art heals wounds - andha art-aiyE vechu wound create paNdrAnganna enna solla?

App saar, so kind of you. You guys start writing stuff, I ll do the jink-chak and encragement.

Btw, also saw Hariharan massacring raasaaththi onna by doing what he does worst - singing his own notes and making abrupt pauses at totally irrelevant places. I don't feel all that bad now. Raasa somehow has got a liking for this guy and gives him a free hand at least on live shows.

Like I mentioned before, not planning to drive to Toronto - even though I can get there in just 3 hours or even less.

Reason? Border crossing / Canada visa / US visa re-stamping etc.

Also, one of my co-worker's friends (who is a H1B like me) went to Toronto for re-stamping with family. Family's H4 visas got stamped at Toronto but they sent the H1 guy alone to Chennai Shocked (Earlier I got my visa restamped at Toronto without any problem, but everything has changed in the last 4 years).

So, not taking any such unnecessary risk - especially with my 19 yr old in his 3rd year of Bachelor's...

While the bay area concert doesn't have any visa issues, it's simply too far Embarassed

So, in my case reNdu concert-um not possible. So near yet so far...

(I read "there" that people like rajkumarc, baroque have already booked their seats for the Bay area concert)

skr,
Any details on how is the "sales" for Toronto concert?

Is it brisk or does the Seeman-group's campaign have a big effect? I browsed some threads in the yAzh website and there seems to be mixed feelings among the Srilankan Thamizh diaspora. (BTW, majority of Toronto ThamizharkaL speak ilangaiththamizh Very Happy )

App ,
The organiser of the event itself is a rich Srilankan Tamil:)
Yes , there are some issues with Seeman & Co, but the organisers are actually trying their best to ensure that it goes smooth..
I believe they managed to convince Bharathi Raja regarding the show and efforts are on in ensuring that the show doesnt get disturbed.

sumAl suggestion:

It allows to post the address like this (though there'll be no hyperlink):

youtube.com/watch?v=kBepMHDkevg

This way, simply copy/paste to browser will work Very Happy

My ill luck continues with Raaja concerts. Missed both the Chennai concerts by a whisker. And this time due to unavoidable personal reasons. I so wanted to go to the bay area one. Sikkago/NYC na pOyiruppEn..

WOW, that's nice to know skr!

BTW, I had a doubt - the IR youtubes at Canada showed him very clearly stating that ONLY THAMIZH songs are planned for the Toronto concert.

OTOH, there was this iLayathaLam video showing KJY rehearsing 'lalitha priya kamalam' (Telungu original of 'idhazhil kadhai ezhudhum nEramidhu'). Some poster in the forum even mentioned that it was for Toronto concert Rolling Eyes

Is that for the Bay Area (which is a JV of Telungu & Thamizh groups)?

Or, are there "adjustments" for Toronto to include other lang?

App ,
Thanks a lot ..Let me see if i can get any updates if i attend the rehearsal
And thanks to you for sorting the youtube thingy ..

Yes , its an only Tamil songs concert (95%) , but there will be say 2-3 songs which are non tamizh such as Lalitha Priya , Thumbi Vaa etc..
The first song after Janani Janani is going to be Manidha Manidha from Kann Sivanthal Mann Sivakkum sung by Yesudass as its supposed to be a hugely favourite song among the Srilankan Tamizhs.

Hey congrats skr. Let us know how if you get to actually meet Raaja.

Saw the Vijay TV munnOttam. It was amusing to see those Raaja classics remixed by R&B hiphop rap youth group. I seriously hope they don't invite Prasanna-Sneha, Vivek, Parthiban on stage. No

sEm blad. idha paththi iyam postings in the hub:

"Sober singer (vijaytv) has this round going on for the last two days called 'strings melody' - a bunch of 6-8 violins, an acoustic guitar and a bass. All contestants have been singing (quite poorly) IR songs so far. While all this might seem too beautiful and romantic, the horror and unintentional comedy has to be seen to be understood! A myriad of ROFLMAX stuff! A bloody slaughter of the man's intricately woven orchestration! Firstly they've not been playing the original notes but have been doing some kinda ad-lib stuff, which to me reeks of lack of dedication to the art (you could play whatever crap you want, but play the original properly once at least). And it doesn't just stop there, the violins are playing such high quality crap that can put even SAR violins to shame! (the "ohhmygoddhowbyooodiful" comments they get from the 'judges' - )

Sample - uravugal thodarkadhai
Vocals: iniyellaam (arguably the most goosebumby portion of the song)
violins: todadoin-pause-todadoin
vocals: sugamE
violins: tididoin-pause-tididoin :ungongongong:

Moral:
hariharization + SARization = deadliest double whammy. Run for cover!"

One thing that I've always fantasized about is the bass guitar getting a special spotlight during Raaja concerts. Alas, it has never been the case so far. Take for example even one of the rehearsal videos here featuring poovE sempoovE. The bass lines in the 2nd interlude are #HisDeadlinessSatanRaaja but they don't, not even for a moment, show the bassie on the screen. Mad

skr, when you're there at the rehearsal, can you try bringing up this point? Tell them there's a whole bunch of us who are crazy of Raaja's bass usage, eagerly waiting to know more about it and would give anything to get a little peek into the man's mind on this subject.
