Singer Haricharan the female voice in Tango Kelayao in Kaatru VeliyidaiMar 24, 2017 JB
Mani Ratnam’s Kaatru Veliyidai has passed the censor with a U certificate and is all set to hit the screens on the 7th of April. AR Rahman has scored the music for the film and the songs have found themselves in the chartbuster list.
One of the songs in the album is Tango Kelayao and in a recent interaction with fans in Facebook, Rahman had revealed that the female portion in it was sung by Haricharan. He had mentioned that Haricharan’s voice resembled a young sensuous female and that he couldn’t find a replacement.
Haricharan is naturally amused and excited and says, “After Azhagiye, I recorded the Tango Kelayo just like any other song, only that the tune was unfolding itself and it was the tango genre. After I sang the first draft on the tune, ARR sir recorded my voice for the female portions as a reference to the female singer who was eventually to come and record it later. I recorded in my normal voice and he used a plugin which modulated it to sound like a lady. I thought it was temporary but am surprised that Rahman sir had retained my voice in the final number too” Click the Movie button below for more info:
