For years, I have been thinking about putting my songs as part of raga kairaly(രാഗകൈരളീ) URL, my raagam wise listing of Malayalam film songs.
But life got busy with creating a new life in a foreign country, work etc, added with laziness. I completed 6 years in USA on2006 Aug 21st!(phew!!!) കാലം പോയ പോക്ക്!
Recently I forged my ties with Malayali community here in Boston and performed at the Christmas 2005 and Onam 2006 functions. While practicing with karaoke tracks for the onam programme, I recorded my song and mixed it with the track, solely for the purpose of feedback and correction. When I listened to it later, it appeared kind of cool and my desire to publish my songs online got re-ignited. Thus, "ragakairali" blog was born!
There was no concept of a blog when I started ragakairaly URL way back in 1997. You can read about my musical musings here. I hope to unearth un-noticed gems of songs in my own voice here. May be delve a little bit into underlying raagas. I also hope to present some carnatic compositions I learned, before I totally forget them.. If you have any comments about the postings, please record it in the blog itself. Alternately, you can write to me
