Kannada Music from second half of October- Reviewed

Image

 

The Kannada music releases in the second half of October did not feature any big stars. But the songs and albums that released, generated enough interest and offered a bunch of nice melodies.

 

Thangali Mellage – Bill Gates – Nobin Paul – Lahari Music/T-Series

Sanjith Hegde’s excellent singing, Nobin Paul’s superb arrangements and a lovely music video with eye-catching choreography – this one gets everything right. Nobin assembles some jaunty rhythms, an energetic Nadhaswaram and harmonious backing vocals to go with the breezy tune. Winner straight away!

 

Rating- 9/10

 

 

Nayana Nayana – Rajeeva IAS – Rohit Sower – Lahari Music/T-Series

A slow burner of sorts, Rohit Sower’s composition has a waltz rhythm to it. The strings and the flute arrangements stand out. Anuradha Bhat is in fine form and lyrics by Shekar Sower fit the serene tune well.

 

 

Rating – 8/10

 

Bandanthe Rajakumara – Bharaate – Arjun Janya – Anand Audio

This is a gorgeous duet in the dulcet voices of Manasa Holla and Santosh Venky and a fantastic follow up to ‘Yoo Yoo’ that was featured in our September 1st fortnight list. They sound so good together. Arjun Janya’s composition is arresting and his arrangements, especially the solo violin, are on the dot. The video song features excellent cinematography and complements the song well.

 

 

Rating – 8/10

The song released on Youtube a couple of weeks after it premiered on streaming sites and hence considered here.

Oh Hoove Ee Naguvu – 19 Age is Nonsense? – S K Kutti – Lahari Kannada/T-Series

S K Kutti’s composition is a pleasant throwback to the music of the 90’s and who better to sing it than Rajesh Krishnan to amp up the nostalgia. The arrangements are adequate.

 

 

Rating – 7/10

 

Jayaratnakara – Bharaate – Arjun Janya – Anand Audio

Sunil Gujagonda’s unique voice powers this lilting track. The “charanams” are mellifluous. The title chant adds to the worshipful tone of the song. Arjun’s rich arrangements elevate the song beautifully. The chorus especially is superb!

 

Rating- 9/10

Yeno Ondu – Vaaruni – Santhosh Rajenahally – Bruthuva Caleb – Siri Music

This is an enjoyable track in the voices of Santhosh Venky and Sparsha RK. The ‘Oh Maina’ reprise works well and the flute and the sedate Santoor add a delightful layer to the track.

Rating – 7/10
