As it has been rightly put, Shadjamam enbadhum dheivatham enbadhum panja parambaraikkaparam dhaan. Folk songs represent the very core and roots of the prestigious tamil soil. This soil has seen the farmers and villagers from time immemorial and it is believed that music with its various dynamics actually originated from the folk genre of music and eventually blossoming into other improvised genres. kelungal idhu naatupura kalaignargaludan engaladhu mannin isai!!

Wish all you music lovers and my lovely dear fans around the world a very happy, prosperous and successful new year 2011 by the grace of god! This new year has begun on a very musical note for me. I welcomed the new year with loads of cheering fans and great music at Kuwait- the land of riches and prosperity bestowed in abundance by Allah. Myself, Charulatha Mani, Vijay Yesudass, Rahul Nambiar and Velmurugan were the powerful five to treat an audience of 2000 at the American International school auditorium on the 31st night between 9 to 12. This was an event organised by the Tamilnadu Engineers Forum TEF Kuwait. That afternoon we were treated to a lovely flute recital by Mr. Naveen Kumar of Bombay theme fame. we became great friends though that was the first time we all met. very hospitable and sweet organisers and members all Tamil people along with their families, kids made the new year a very special one for all of us. I started the show with Mukunda Mukunda and went on to sing damma dumma from Kalavaani, my super hit song for the year 2010, Valayapatti with Rahul and later Taj mahal oviya kadhal my duet with Vijay Yesudass from the movie Kalvanin Kadhali in Yuvan Shankar raja's music. As a mark of the rich tamil culture and heritage, i wore a beautiful designer pink saree which was much appreciated by all! as they say namma thamizh mannoda kalachaaram!! I really loved doing the slow songs medley along with the other singers. While Rahul and Vijay were belting out lovely melodies like o Butterfly, Mandram vandha, i joined them on Shenbagame and sang Ninaivo Oru Paravai unplugged from Sigappu Rojakkal. The entire audience gave me a roar suggesting their craze for Kamal Haasan!Then it gradually proceeded to a kuthu songs medley. This was the part of the show that we had lotsa fun with! The next day new year we had lunch at the Rezayat Villa resorts and then went shopping to 360 mall, one of the largest malls on Kuwait! since it was new years time, lots of sale was going on. I must say that shopping is such a blissful experience, especially the scarves, nuts and spices, shoes ( knee length boots are on high fashion right now, i myself got a lovely pair of brown swade boots at a superrr price!!). PS. The ameer of kuwait has 72 wives each with palaces and plush cars. the villas there each look like architectural monuments. a sight to behold! some casual pics taken at the beaches..
