Retro Rahman 2.0 will also see the youthful exuberance of Sathyaprakash. His contribution to award-winning songs such as Nallai Allai for the movie Kaatru Veliyidai and Aalaporan Thamizhan for the movie Mersal has ensured his steady growth, making waves in the process with his mellifluous voice.
The Aug 3 line-up includes pianist and stellar entertainer, Anil Srinivasan, the energetic Mani & Band ensemble (of Vijay TV Airtel Super Singer talent show) featuring Nikhil Ram on flutes.
Mano’s relationship with Rahman began in 1994 when he was approached by the maestro to
sing Mukkabla for the film Kadhalan. A professional vocal modulator, he hit the ball out of the
park with Aathangara Marame for Kizhakku Seemaiyile, a tune that is forever embedded in
the minds of Rahman fans.
Srinivas gained recognition with Maana Madurai from Rahman’s hit musical direction for Minsaara Kanavu, followed by En Uyire from Mani Ratnam’s Uyire (the Tamil version of Dil Se). These Rahman compositions catapulted Srinivas into fame.
With a career spanning over three decades, Sadhana Sargam is one of the very few Indian
singers who could surpass Rahman’s expectations with her renditions of his songs. Her most
critically acclaimed songs were in the film Water, composed by Rahman, in which she sang
three songs: Aayo Re Sakhi, Piya Ho and Naina Neer. Sargam has recorded since songs for
Rahman in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu.
Harini was approached by Rahman to sing Nila Kaigirathu in the award-winning film Indira at
the age of 15. She’s sung more than 2,000 songs in Tamil, including Telephone Manipol from
Indian and Hello Mr. Edhirkatchi from Iruvar.
