Kannanai Thedi

The song, about which I wanted to write some days ago , but could not write for some reasons. Finally, I am posting about my recent favorite song of Shreya “Kannanai Thedi” from the Tamil Movie “Marupadiyum Oru Kadhal”. Music is composed by Srikanth Deva. Shreya has earlier sung Mudhal Mudhalaga( again , one of my favorites) for him.

Kannanai Thedi is a kind of a song for which I wait every year. Though I don’t understand the language, but I think its dedicated to Lord Narayana / Krishna.The track runs for four and a half minutes. It starts with a beautiiffffffffuuuuuuullll carnatic alaap by Shreya. When you will hear that alaap , you will know why I have stressed so much on the word “beautiful”. The track is completely based on Carnatic Music supported by Tabla , flute , etc. I always get goose bumps whenever I hear the line “Yaaroda Enna Solvaen” (hope I spelled it correctly). in the mukhda. Its so beautifully sung by Shreya. The first interlude has a beautiful piece played on Sitar. The stanzas are very beautifully composed and sung which shows the complete devotion to Krishna. My favorite is second interlude which includes a mesmerizing alaap by Shreya. These type of songs are really missing these days. Hope we get to hear more of these :). Even Shreya tweeted about this song some days ago and she, as usual , got great replies from her followers

Hats off to Shreya and Srikanth Deva for gifting us this masterpiece. Hope we get to hear more songs by this combo soon :)
