Thelusuna - Sontham

This is my first attempt in a language that I do not speak. I never even watched Telugu movies until I came to the US. I was fortunate enough to meet so many people from different parts of India, only after I came to the US. Some of my beloved friends from Andhra Pradesh introduced me to Telugu movies and music. This is one of my favorite songs...I especially like the rhythm....I think it is Misra Chapu Thalam...(Please correct me if I'm wrong). Also I am sure my Telugu pronunciation is thickly laced with a Tamil accent and needs a lot of improvement, native Telugu speakers, please correct me as much as possible.

The second stanza has a lot of jarring noise..I could not make the karaoke track any better than that so I tried reducing the volume...

MD: Devi Sri Prasad

Quite a challenge you have taken up here! Did you write the lyrics in Tamil and then render the song? Sounds lovely!
Looking forward to more updates on the blog.

Hi Aravind, thank you...I wrote it in English, I always found that writing it in English kept my tamil accent to the minimum...

Another class rendition :-)
Devi Sri Prasad is a versatile musician. He is famous for his Melodies, and he is outstanding with his Pepe numbers also.
Please listen to charanam once again, I felt that slight off pitch was there. not sure though. Its in Mishra chappu itself.
Your voice is sweeter in High notes. :-)
With Love,
Arun.
