Wow..Divya..superb as usual,comparing to the original wanted to mention about the starting,it would be nice if you could give a bit more bhavam for "mayangippoi",

This is one of my recent fav songs from MJ,somehow i liked the male version of this song from "Nishad",he amazed me with this song..!

Hi Divya,
Another gem from MJ's stable, you have rendered it flawlesly. The only slight snag I felt was that the BGM seemed to be just a few nanoseconds ahead of the voice- especially in the first charanam. But the mellifluous voice of yours has more than compensated this recording anomaly.
You have already reached there... the hallowed portals of playback singing! Keep it up and best wishes.

Great Divya.. too good. High notes crystal clear as usual :). And you were able to nicely capture the feel too. I have one humble opinion (Hope you would take it as a constructive feedback). The Mayangipoyi(s) in first stanza oralpam koodi neetti edukkamayirunnu(starting a bit earlier).. that would have avoided the nano second difference that Madhavan kutty(chettan ?) had pointed out.

Flawless otherwise :)

Grt voice..keep it up! Only one suggestion though. Cut down the reverb a bit, too much sustain on your voice and it is evident in certain places when the instruments die out and only your voice sustains. Trust me, your voice doesn't need enhancing ;)

Hi Divya, you got a really nice voice. No doubt. And you are using it very well too. I found your blog just by a usual browsing. Just a suggestion: It would be near to perfection if you could concentrate more on the "thaalam" of the karoke. You have a wonderful talent. Keep singing and all the best
