The name “Shankar Tucker” is now famous among all Facebook users from the release of his song “Nee Nenaindal” featuring the Iyer sisters Viday and Vandan Iyer
Matha Amritanandamayi named the boy “Shakar”, and he came to India to study classical music. He is a clarinetist.
Now, a new song from the same team, ie, the Iyer Sisters and Shakar Tucker has come which reached 17k hits in just 3 days on youtube.
It is the song “Ashai Mugam”. Though I am not a Tamizhan, I think this song is all about Lord Krishna, and probably it is singing by his lover Radha ( not sure ! just a wide guess ! )
I just love the song. It is his second song that gives me energy all the day and I have already heard this song over 200 times in just 3 days.
Ashai Mugam is a Carnatic Song written in Tamil language by Bharathiyaar
Well, I just love the way these sisters pronounce “Nenjam” at 54th second, and also “kannan mugam marandhupoanaal”
Watch it below.
aasai mugam marandhu poachchae – idhai
yaaridam solvaenadi thoazhi
naesam marakkavillai nenjam – enil
ninaivu mugam marakkalaamoa
kannan mugam marandhupoanaal – indha
vannap padamumillai kandaay – ini
vaazhum vazhiyennadi thoazhi
There is a confusion in this song, as every one says that the pronunciation is not correct for some words in that song such as “ashi”. The mostly used pronunciation is “asai” in Tamil. However, this difference is because, from what I read , of the Iyer ( Brahmin ) family’s pronunciation. Iyers don’t pronounce “asai”, they pronounce “ashi”..
Anyway, music has no language, & just like hundreds of other people, I just love this song.
