A huge thanks to Naqvi ji for engineering this track. He blended two tracks and did his magic to create this one.
When Giri ji asked me to sing a duet with him, I was on cloud nine. Felt like I won the Oscar or something. Always listened to his songs and felt what an amazing singer he is. Such melodious, baritone voice which creates an ethereal ambiance no matter which genre he selects. I can't express in words how much I respect him. That respect grew multiple folds when I exchanged emails with him during the process of this song. He is not only a talented singer but a wonderful human being, and an excellent teacher. I learned so much while doing this duet. With a teacher like him anyone could sing in any language. Thank you Giri ji.
This is my first attempt at singing in a language which I don't understand a single word of. Sorry for my diction errors. Never tried singing a Tamil song before. But had so much fun while learning and singing this sweet melody.
I could go on and on, but I want to post this quickly. Giri ji sent the final version a few days back but I couldn't log into YL to upload earlier. If I've missed something important in the description, I'll add that later.
