Story behind the song
Ever inspired by 'Vanajakshi' a nice fusion attempt by A.R.Rahman, I had asked A.C to help me with some nice varnam, and A.C. obliged with 'Innam En Manam' a varnam by Lalgudi G. Jayaraman. Can anyone ever get Aahista out of their system ? A.R.Rahman's amazing melody, simplistic orchestration and beautiful rendition makes this song one of his all-time bests. One thing lead to the other, and when Arun and I were getting ready for the song, the new 'talam' was born, with 'Ghatam' like sounds, and 'morsings' etc. Without Arun, the idea of the guitar-distortion-electronic intro would not have been even thought of. And finally, the ragam 'Charukesi' an eternal-well for melodies, is a source of inspiration in-and-of-itself. Cheers to Charukesi Credits : Aishwarya Chandiramouli - for seeding this concept with the lovely varnam 'Innam En Manam' Lalgudi G. Jayaraman - composer of the varnam 'Innam En Manam' A.R.Rahman - composer of the song 'Aahista Aahista' Arun Sekar - for lending his voice and creative inputs to the composition, and for putting up with my ever picky mind.
