Shishurvetti pashurvetti vetti vetti gAnarasaM phaNiH
Above verse in Sanskrit means : The essence of music can be experienced by all creatures – from a child to an animal to a snake. In other words, music has the power to touch, reform and influence the entire creation.
Today, I am posting some of serene South Indian instrumental fusion/film/album music.
1)How to name it: This is a divine composition. I feel, we undergo several emotions while listening to this song. Some serene happiness comes to us while listenting to this composition :)
Some more info about the album: How to Name It? (1986) is an instrumental Indian-Western fusion album by Shri Ilaiyaraaja. This was Ilayaraaja’s first fusion music album. The album has musical movements that are dedicated to Tyagaraja, a religious musician and composer of South India (1767-1847) and the Western Classical music composer, J. S. Bach (1685-1750) of Germany.
One of the tracks is based on Preludium in E by Johann Sebastian Bach.(Source wikipedia)

2)Sangathil paadatha or Thumbi vaa or aakasham or gumsum gumsum instrumental by Shri Ilayaraja: Shri Ilayaraja is Maestro of Indian Music. We are really luck to be born in the time when he composed music. Check this version of Thumbi vaa song.

3)SONG OF SOUL from the album NOTHING BUT WIND by Shri Ilayaraja: In this particular composition the Flute Recitation by Hariprasad Chaurasia adds much more magic to Shri Ilayaraja’s composition.
4)Flight of The Humble Bee: Dr. Lakshminarayana Subramaniam is an acclaimed Indian violinist, composer and conductor, trained in the classical Carnatic music tradition and Western classical music, and renowned for his virtuoso playing techniques and compositions in orchestral fusion.(Source: wikipedia)
Check this amazing “Flight of the Humble Bee”. In this performance, Hubert Laws’s flute was equally amazing as L.Subramanian’s Violin :)
5)L.Subramaniam – Harmony of the Hearts:
6)”Raga’s Dance” by A.R. Rahman: A.R.Rahman needs no introduction however thought of posting one of rare master pieces of his albums.
7)Uyire Uyire By Rajesh Vaidya: Rajhesh Vaidhya , is an Indian veena player hailing from Tamil Nadu. Besides performing on stage, he has worked with various film music composers. Vaidhya was a winner of the 2010 Kalaimamani award for his veena playing.(Source wikipedia)
There is some magic in Shri Rajesh Vaidya’s Veena. We become addictive to his music. Check this veena version of Uyire Uyire Song from Bombay film…this instrumental version very serene :)
8)Narumugaiye Narumugaiye by Rajesh Vaidhya on Veena: Iruvar movie by Maniratnam is an epic. This song from this movie is feast to eyes and ears :) . Rajesh Vaidhya recreated the same magic through his Veena. Check the same:
9)Kanmani Anbodu by Rajesh Vaidhya: Guna is one of the good cinemas of Kamal Hassan. The first thing we remember when we talk about Guna is “Kanmani Anbodu” song. Music is serene and lyrics are divine. It is one among the best collection of South Indian Love Songs. Serenity of the love is depicted through the music, lyrics and the act. Same film was dubbed in Telugu as Guna and the song is known as Priyatama Neevachata Kusalama. This is one of my all time favorite songs I love the tune and lyrics.
Rajesh Vaidhya performed the same magical song in much more serene manner on his Veena. Check this:
PS: Check this amazing music bit of “Priyatama Neevachata kusalama” song from the upcoming movie “Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu”
10)Nila Kaigirathu – A violin cover by Karthick Iyer: No words to describe this amazing version of Karthick Iyer.
Hope all of you enjoyed listening to these wonderful songs.
