Mano`s `Naan Oru Kaadhal Sangeetham`
No shows scheduled for now
The early 90s saw Mano experimenting with his voice through some modulations and it indeed worked in his favor to silence his critics. In 1994, he was approached by A. R. Rahman to sing a duet song with Swarnalatha for the movie Kadhalan. Mano was asked to sing in a very different style by the composer and he recorded his voice which was inspired by R. D. Burman`s in the Mehbooba Mehbooba song from Sholay. The song went on to become a huge blockbuster which broke all the regional barriers and reached out to the entire country. He recorded the same song in both Telugu and Hindi versions which were also well received. Following this stupendous success in experimentation, many music directors cashed in his new found fame and made him sing in the same style. Some of the songs he modulated his voice for are Aye Shabba Aye Shabba for Vidyasagar`s Karna, I Love You and Azhagiya Laila for Sirpy`s Ullathai Allitha and Thillana Thillana for Rahman`s Muthu. He has also done a few semi-classical numbers such as Athma Varaiyo and sung a few Hindi film songs for Gulshan Kumar in Aaya Sanam, Aaja Meri Jaan, Kasam Theri Kasam and Chor Aur Chan.
