Projekt Ilaiyaraaja Season III — 362/365 —Eerettu Padhinaru
Eerettu Padhinaru is an interesting song. You will know it when you listen to it but I was trying to find the scene that leads to this song. I was guessing that they might not have picturised the song and my guess was right.
The song starts with an amazing bass guitar and with western techno orchestration, Mano starts singing. But the first interlude suddenly shifts to a perfect carnatic composition in Sri Ranjani raga and from the second interlude the orchestration shifts to a more Hindustani tone in the same raaga. All of them without even a glitch or jarring. In one song, you get to see the different shades of a raaga in three different styles.
