Finally, we are on!

Yeah people!

Our songs are online from today. From the very first minute of 25th May. :-) I would like to thank each and every person behind this effort and such a project wouldn't have been possible without their great efforts and constant support. Thank you all of my BlogSwara mates!!! I know I've been too harsh at times rushing on things but the response from you guys have been really encouraging.

What started from a question "Why don't you co-ordinate these audiobloggers and do something together?" has ended up in this concept called BlogSwara. Thank you Sen, for all your encouraging words right from the beginning.

Lemme write a small "Thank You" note.

  • Thanks to Narayan Venkitu, without his help I wouldn't have entered this amazing world of audioblogging.
  • Thanks to Ganesh for this cool name, BlogSwara.
  • Thanks to Mukund and Bharat for contributing the .COM and .ORG domain names.
  • Thanks to Connexions for contributing the webspace for BlogSwara.
  • Thanks to Kaps, Desi Pundit & Manasi for their support.
  • Thanks to Indian Express, Malayala Manorama and others for the press coverage. Business Line (of The Hindu) will have an article on us soon.
  • Thanks to all the bloggers who put a link to our website.
  • Thanks to Murali for his help on song list preparation and on the other things.

And thanks a lot to our team who had agreed to write, compose, orchestrate and sing the songs for BlogSwara right after I mailed them. You guys are amazing!!! Thank you!!!

And a BIG thank you to all those bloggers and non-bloggers who have encouraged us to go this far. Your encouragement is greatly appreciated.

ആദ്യസംരംഭം ഉഷാറായി...

കൂടെ ഒരഭിപ്രായവും: ജ്യോതിസിന്റെ കവിത ഓര്‍ക്കസ്റ്റ്രൈസേഷന്‍ ഇല്ലാത്തതാണ് കൂടുതല്‍ ഹൃദ്യമായി തോന്നിയത്‌. കൂടാതെ പലതിലും വായ്പ്പാട്ടിനേക്കാള്‍ ഉപകരണങ്ങള്‍ മുഴച്ചുനില്‍ക്കുന്നതായും തോന്നി.

അടുത്തതിനായി കാത്തിരിക്കുന്നു..

Great idea, great effort, great execution... Vaazhvu sezhika, sendhamarai, aisi bheegi and unai paartha appealed to me right away in that order (first listen) Keep it up y'all... Like someone mentioned earlier your next effort needs to be better than this...

Narayanan Venkitu said...

Thank you all of you for listening.!

We are listening too..to what you say.!

I am sure the albums to come will reflect your thoughts!

rags said...

Just now heard the revised version of Alai kadal.
Excellenta irukku MS. Ganesh version was not mixing well with the BGM. This version blends well and you did a good job in brighas at certain places.

Kudos Onceagain everyone. Oh Oh for Blogswara(Onnum illa O potten)

Thoughts on my top 3 songs....

On a normal day, I listen to high energy songs while I drive to work. Today I switched off my the CD and on the contrary, I was humming "Unai paarthathaal". Such was the effect of Bharani's rendition on me. What an awesome singing. Bharani stands out with his raspy voice and wonderful expressions. Encore sounded so professional for the beautiful lyrics by NV.

When I visited Blogswara's website, I came with an open mind
to accept all the songs as they were. I am quite familiar with
many of the Blogswara artists' singing style as I have been
listening to them for the last few months. I have always felt
Murali to be very experimental with his singing. Today, he
impressed me with his composition for the song "Senthamarai". It is my belief, a musical composition should pull you through its magical string and make you wonder what's in store. That is what Murali has done with his composition of "Senthamaarai"
and it was well supported by Meera, one of my favorite singers, along with Mukundan.

In cricket, everytime Dravid goes to bat, I expect atleast a fifty from him because of his consistency. In singing, I
expect consistency from Jo. As expected he has done a wonderful job in "Vaazhvu chezhikka". Jo, remain a "Dravid" and never be a "Ganguly" :-) I did not know that NV can compose. Very nice tune.

Great work, everyone. I will write more on rest of the songs after listening to them few more times.

Jo said...

Hello guys,
