Ilayaraja’s Thiruvasagam Audio release

Balaji and Swahilya had the privilege of attending the launch of Ilayaraja’s Thiruvasagam in Symphony (or Oratorio) album yesterday. Although Ilayaraja requested all his fans to buy the original album, some people seem to be searching for the MP3’s. Some of them landed on my blog while they were looking for this album in Google.

Business Line had an article on the economics behind the Thiruvasagam release. Ilayaraja didn’t take any money (as remuneration) for the production of this album. However, Ilayaraja and Tamil Maiyam (the producers) jointly share the rights of the album. They have taken a loan of Rs. 1 crore towards the production of this album. If this doesn’t succeed commercially it will come as a big jolt to the producers. Needless to say that it will also put paid to ambitions of such innovative projects in the near future.

Rayil Sneham

What do you do if your favourite song is not available in the stores? I decided to download it (with some amount of reluctance). I have been searching for the song Indha Veenaikku Theriyadhu from the Balachander serial Rayil Sneham. Dinesh had mentioned about it recently and I had no option other than to download the same. If anyone knows about the singer / music director, please let me know.


  • "Indha Veenaikku Theriyadu,' in my favourite Sahana ragam was a favourite tune which I used to hum.

  • Anyway to download the MP3??

  • The music was by V.S.Narasimhan - Ilaiyaraja's violinist. He has also composed for movies like 'Achchammillai Achchammillai', 'Aayiram Pookal Malarattum' & 'Paasa Malargal". The singer is of course, Chitra, who pays homage to Sahana in this wonderful little ditty. Surprisingly enough, Ilaiayaraja has never composed a full-length song in Sahana. The only instance of Sahana by Raja was in another KB film - a nadhaswram piece played by the mute brother in 'Unnaal Mudiyum Thambi'. The best Sahana composition, in my opinion, is the amazing 'Paarthaen Sirithaen, Pakkam Vara Thudithaen'.

  • I will be surprised if "Thiruvasagam" is not a commercial success. What intrigues me though is that the producers have take a loan of Rs. 1cr? Is there nobody out there who can bankroll such a noble venture and donate the earnings, to fund such works in the future?
