Juxtaposing two of my favourites

I happened to do this while we beamed my show Aahaa Kaapi Klub from Canada, while we were there for a show earlier this year. Tried combining Jagjit Singh's "Apne Aankhon ke samandar mein..." with "Udhaya Udhaya". It sounded nice then. I tried pretty much the same thing. Telecast on yesterday, its here for your view.

Hari Prasad said...

Hey Chinmayi!!!

Superb!! The Feel and Music mattered here that I feel. This is one way and also an example for national integration. Could you give the meaning of this "Apne" that you have sung here.

Thanks for sharing such a nice video & music. Its excellent.

This girl looks like one contestent of Airtel Super Singer 2008- Thamizagathin brammandamana chella kural thedal.

I was so upset that Baargavi was eleiminated, she didnt perform well because of wrong song selection. You could have given her a chance to sing some other song.

Little time I get to spend on TV, an I dont miss Super singer. we make it a point to watch together(my wife/daughter) . We are a great fan of yours.I'm little dissappointed that you sounded so biased towards santhosh/deepshika pair that you gave him/them your lucky lord hanuman's idol. I didnt have an answer when my daughter asked me - why did chinmayi aunty gave this to only Santhosh & Deepshika? though i can appreciate that its a purely personal decision, and that you gave him with good intentions, i thought you shouldn't have chosen to tell about this to everyone in public. I think other participants too deserve good luck and beleive me everyone is seeking blessings and well wishes from a mentor like you and i hope you will take care of them with a small gesture of good luck during the coming shows so that everyone gets more encouraged and motivated...

Cheers
Raj

ப்ரியா said...

Well done.
While you called Ravi in yesterday's show,

Raveeeeeeeee.....

you sounded just the same as you did in Satham podathey, while PadmaPriya calls Prithvi...'Raveeeeeeeeee'
:-)

ப்ரியா said...

and your tandanakka...
hahaha
:-)

vids said...

Oh my your song was fabulous yest.... Absolutely gr8 singing ....One suggestion , why can't the orchestration be improved for the Contest ... plz ....

Krithi said...

Hey Chin,
Tat was an awesum performnace sterday...

கணினி தேசம் said...

Udhaya..Udhayaa.. is one of my favourite.

You were great to listen as always..

Parthasarathi said...

Superb. I love the Udhaya song. Wonderful composition by Rahman Sir. Thank you.

Chinmayi Sripada said...

Thanks everyone
Raj: The Hanuman chain was NOT given by me. I guess there is a serious misunderstanding. If you had seen the earlier episodes, Santhosh mentioned during the regionals that his mom gave it to him and he thinks it is lucky for him. And he carries it. It has been my routine to ask time and again whether he has it on his person. Wish you had made double checked before calling me biased.

Geetha said...

Hey Chimayi, Posting my comment once more :)

This is like listening to MY Chinamyiii after a loooooong time..

Krishnan KR said...

Chinmayi.. Just SUPERB !!

your singing at Time code 01:09 to 01:11 and 01:20 to 01:21 ..its like I'm caught in some spell.

I'm not gonna watch anymore videos of you singing..coz I'll go into trance

Raji said...

Yesterday night only i thought i forgot to mention about tantanakka and came here to mention about that....

But priya mentioned it :):) :) Great :)

But actually it was very nice chinmayi :)

Priya Sivan said...

There are some live renditions which we feel tempted to hear again and again and yours was one such piece! Thanks to youtube, we could hear it again :)
The songs were blended at the right place and beautifully rendered by you!

Raji said...

WISH U A VERY HAPPY DIWALI CHINMAYI..

baskar said...

chinmayi...ur 'udaya'-mixing effort is amazing & its not only impressive but teaches the contestants... they should get a lot from u everytime u walk-in....

Anand said...

Hi Chinmayi

Just curious..Do u always close your eyes when you sing/perform..

In AirtelSuperSinger 2008, one of the judges (I think Sunitha Sarathy) jokingly asked the same question to some participants...

BSK said...

that was superb.

Sorry about that. may be my kid didnt listen to it properly, neither me. we didnt see the earlier episodes as well. Sorry again.

But I must tell you, its a great work that you have been doing. Singers improving at every stage, and the competition is getting more tougher and interesting to watch.

All the best.....

Hey by the way a request, we love hearing SAHANA song from you live - if you get a chance, do sing it for us in one of the episodes.

Cheers
Raj

Raji said...

Hi Chinmayee,

This is Venkat from Bangalore.
I do regularly watch Airtel Super Singer 2008.
U host really good.

This is the first time I'm seeing ur blog. pls don feel bad.:))

Commenting on ur voice I shud admint that u have a very bold, clear & a very soothing voice which u render according to the song.
Also Tamil pronounciation is too good while singing which really can make a song Hit.
Thats really great. Moreover I'm a die hard fan of ARR sir. And liked ur voice since Kannathil muththamittal.
All the Best for ur future ventures.

I hope u reply my comment.
Just a question. Since most of the celebrities are busy, how do you get time to blog n reply to our comments.

Cheers,
Venkat

Maddy said...

I listen to this song in one of your posts sooooooo many times.Its awesome and very soothing. Thank you so much for sharing this video. Happy deepavali to you and amma.

Vidhya said...

Chinmayi...

I met you once in Manirathnam Sir's office. My friend Manasa was working there and she introduced me to you....I am very sure that you wont remember me....

I work till 10.00 PM, so I dont get to watch Super Singer...which is making me sick....my husband watches the show and he always praise your voice....So I found a way to see the show....I started watching in the net....Then I thought, I should know more about you...so I searched for your profile in Wikipedia...

I listned to your "Udaya Udaya"...Oh my gosh....your voice is awesome.....I always wonder whether it is your voice....because when you speak ...it is different and when you sing ...it is completely different....I just dont know what to say....You are great....

I dont know how you get time to maintain your blog...if at all you get time...please email me....I will be very happy if you respond....

One request...if it is possibe...could you please recommend Vijay TV to retelecast Super Singer show during the weekend please?????????????

All the Very Best...

Hi Chinamyi,

We love to watch Super Singer and you are a very good compere. Just a thought - Can you also say Shubha ratri - Meaning Good Night in Sanskrit (phonetic language) at the end of the show? It feels good for your fans including us.

Raji Vivek said...

Hi Chinmayi

Have a question for you: In Super Singer 2008, I hear this word often - "different jonar" for different song types. Can you tell me what "Jonar" means????

Thnx,
Raji

SaiRam said...

Shoba said...

Hi Chinmayee,

I was awestruck by your rendition of "Udhaya Udhaya" a personal favourite of mine...Is there a way you can sneak in "Mayya Mayya" live in any of the episodes of Airtel Super Singer. Your voice explodes in that song...also the wonderful song in U18Y20...and your soothing humming in "Enadhuyirae"...I LOVE that song too....You ROCK Chinmayee...

Bhavani said...

It was a great performance by you, Chinmayee.... You ROCK!.. Way to go. :-)

Diya said...

Can't believe your rendition of Udhaya Udhaya..can't even enjoy the original after listening to you :) Do you have a recording of the full song anywhere? Would love to hear this masterpiece in your voice!!
