Just in...

Putumayo World Music has come out with a project called India: A Cultural Journey, an innovative book that represents Putumayo’s first foray into publishing. India combines photography, travelogue and cultural exploration. This book presents a whole new way of traveling the globe, Putumayo style. it is published in conjunction with a "CD collection showcasing India’s rich musical variety, from traditional and acoustic music to Bollywood and electronica. India’s emergence as a global economic power has brought increased awareness of this extraordinarily diverse country’s multicultural offerings, its music foremost among them."
The following is taken from their website
India’s thriving popular music scene—an adjunct to the country’s immense Bollywood film industry—is highlighted on this collection. The love ballad “Tere Bina,” from last year’s blockbuster Guru, was written by acclaimed film composer A. R. Rahman and features Chinmayee, the award-winning female playback singer (an artist who records the songs that actors lip-synch).
Feels nice to see my name in this list :)

My perception is that, generally, people who are into movies are utterly dumb and are arrogant and vain. But then, far from having any of these qualities, you are good-natured, intelligent and humble. I really like you very much. Chinmayyi, wanna ask you something - will you marry me? ;)

Hi Chinmayee,

Not really the type to get involved with blogs, tv shows etc..but still felt I should comment, on your absence from Super singer. Don't know the reason why you arent there, or whether you will be back,but it sure seems different without you. For one, I as many others would agrees, do not like Malini compering for the show.
At times its painful to watch her on TV, but more so since you did a really wonderful job. I just get to watch the show on the internet, since I dont get to watch it on TV here in New York. Hope to see you back on the show soon.

Ashwini said...

And when did Rohit get eliminated from the Super singer? I dont remeber having missed any program, or was it due to other reasons?

Ramya Sridharan said...

Dear chinmayee

Nice to see your name :) Keep rocking and all the best .

Best wishes from your fan since your sapthaswarangal days :)

Thats great to be featured on Putumayo. I have a lot of their CD's, we used to sell them at our Coffee Shops in Michigan.

I suppose with the two Oscar's that A.R. Rahman got this year, this should be even more popular.

Congrats.
