Background Score - 79



It has been a while since we had a background score quiz. So, here it is. Guess the film.

Jappanil Kalyana Raaman

What an amazing conversation Ilaiyaraaja writes between percussion instruments of varied genres. I could hear Mirudangam, Tabla Tarang, Xylophone, Drums, Chendai, Kanjira and there could be more. The main melody, though absolutely beautiful, is just an excuse to hold the delicious conversation between the varied percussion instruments together. Ilaiyaraaja seamlessly moves from one genre to another in a way only he can.

I was on a buying spree in flyte, and was searching for all Ilaiyaraaja theme music tracks that are available for download. And it is then I found this theme. It is from Jappanil Kalyana Raaman. I don’t remember much from this film and I don’t where this piece is used in the film.

Sounds Raajaparvai-like. Just a wild guess. The usage of drums sounds so like his How To Name It usage of the drums in the track Don't Compare. Excellent track this. Thanks!

DrunkenmunkG - Not that film.

"Ivan" movie?

P.S. Suresh Kumar said...

Babu - No. This film is much older.

Don't know the film. But it could the subject of the movie could be dance related like salangai oli (i know it is not). Though there is elaborate percussion conversation, I don't think the main melody is just an excuse to hold the conversation between percussion.

Sripathy ramesh - About the melody. I understand

Where I can buy IR soundtracks exclusively? (exclusively = not alongside movie songs etc...)

RK - Unfortunately, there is no such place. In flipkart's flyte, you can even buy just one song in an album.
