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.

Some voice in favor of IR's concert...from Suba.Veerapandian:

alaikal.com/news/?p=115848


ஈழ ஆதரவு என்பது எவர் ஒருவருக்கும் ‘மொத்தக் குத்தகைக்கு’ விடப்படவில்லை
...
...
இவ்வளவு வேண்டாம்… இளையராஜாவின் இசை நிகழ்ச்சி முடிந்து, பத்து நாள்களுக்குப் பிறகு வரவிருக்கும் தீபாவளியைத் தமிழ்நாட்டுத் தமிழர்களோ, தமிழ் ஈழத் தமிழர்களோ கொண்டாடக்கூடாது என்று இவர்களால் அறிவிக்க முடியுமா?
...
...
1988ஆம் ஆண்டு, ‘ஈழ மக்களைக் கொல்லாதே, இந்திய ராணுவமே திரும்பி வா’ என்ற கோரிக்கையை முன்வைத்து, ‘ஈழத்தமிழர் உரிமைப் பாதுகாப்புக் கூட்டமைப்பு’ கையெழுத்து இயக்கம் ஒன்றை நடத்தியது. பல்வேறு துறைகளைச் சார்ந்த புகழ்பெற்ற 300 பேர் அவ்வறிக்கையில் கையொப்பமிட்டனர். நீதியரசர் வி.ஆர்.கிருஷ்ணய்யர், முரசொலி மாறன், சுரதா, வைரமுத்து, மு.மேத்தா, சுந்தரராமசாமி, அசோகமித்திரன், ஞாநி, பாலுமகேந்திரா, கலைப்புலி தாணு உள்ளிட்ட பலர் அன்று கையொப்பமிட்டனர். அந்த வரிசையில் ஒருவராய், இளையராஜாவும் கையெழுத்திட்டிருந்தார் என்பதைப் புதிதாய்ப் புறப்பட்டிருக்கும் ஈழ ஆதரவாளர்கள் அறிவார்களா என்று தெரியவில்லை.

Yeah, unbelievable that they are finalists. That, he/she is so young crap does not hold water becuase I have seen far superior talents on the mallu reality shows. And goes to show how difficult those songs are to sing and how great those original singers were. Saw one girl struggling with maalaiyil yaarO manathOdu pEsa. Gasping for breath so much that I thought she d collapse any minute. Could not even do 10% of what Swarna had done.

And the orchestra - Rs.150 kuduththa idhai vida eppadi better-aa kidaikkum?! Strings section it seems, with 4 untuned violins. Even on this front malluland is far superior. Some real talents behind those instruments too on the reality shows.

Yes. Bassies are the unseen lot. Also in my nitpick list is the (lack of volume) from the drum kit.

BTW, saw 2-3 videos from the Be With Me program. "Ilaiya nila"/"en iniya pon nilave" was just heavenly. Youtube la paakkave mei silirkkudhu, nerla romba pramaadhama irundhirukkum. Unfortunately, full-a illa. Motta harmoniuthula lude vaasikka aaramikkaraan, adhukkulla cut iaruchu

Regarding super singer @Nerd
I say blame the parents and other adults involved. Nalla paattukkal laam naama idhu panradhu dhaane. Of course, the kids have a mind of their own and it's better that way also. Aana, adhungalukku competitive edge venumna aambala kural la paadra modern song dhaan paadanum nu fix pannirukkaanga. Dei, adhunga kuzhandhainga da!. Disgusting show, disgusting orchestra, disgusting judging.

Wise decision in a way! I cant imagine any of the new guys hitting the notes in the charanam! The ladies might be slightly better in that sense! Laughing
The audacity to conceive such a charanam and kamal for his kickass rendition... afro

Had the privilege of attending the rehearsals yday at Prasad Studios ..
It was truly a magnificient site to witness and listen to such high quality music ..Its amazing to think that some of the greatest music was created in that small room ..
The disappointment however was the king IR not being there , seems he had left to Thiruvannamalai ..
Took some snaps with his portraits and his musicians who were a nice bunch of people.

As App rightly pointed out , the telugu songs are only for the US concert which is organised by Bay Area people (predominantly goltis there i believe)
There are some interesting songs in the concert like Pottu Vaitha , Naan Porandha and a song from Padicha Pulla Poongatre.

I think a host of people will host the show one of them being GVM.

Nakkheeran says it won't happen.

Thatstamil says it may not happen.

No news from ilayathalam's FB page. Flights have started going out in the area.
