This welcome theme song is a dance drama production that was composed/song written (melody), music produced, arranged, record produced by myself. Sung by myself along with Eminent Singer Velmurugan.
I conducted & recorded the entire session comprising a plethora of instruments including ancient traditional percussions of Tamilnadu, highlighting the “Beats of Tamilnadu” & “Rhythm of India”.
I’ve arranged this piece of music/dance drama production with 7 sections, a duration of about 9 minutes.
Commencing with the grooves n beats of the Tamilnadu folk tradition in the 6/8 rhythm, this song introduces the land of Tamilnadu with the Adlib section & shifts with dramatic moves striking towards the action/thriller styles in 4/4 rhythm & delving to deliver a promising attitude to create a new world.
The mid passages convey the theatrical aspects starting right from the ancient times to present day scenario & hence the music is a blend of contemporary style merging with genres such as World, Indian Pop, Indian Folk & the Ragas of Hindustani Classical Music & Carnatic Classical Music (Indian Classical Art Forms). This segment quickly introduces a Hindustani Classical Music Swara section concluding with a “thihaayee”, a technical term to sign the end of the swara section.
The finale of this song travels towards a greater vision to portray the significance, cultural values & disciplines of the land of Tamilnadu, depicting the prevalence through generations.
The music for the finale has been written in a grand manner, comprising heavy orchestral arrangements matching the dance styles that focus to highlight the theme “Idhu Namma Tamilnadu” (It’s our Tamilnadu).
