    I hope that the Madurai concert will be recorded and broadcast later (as a Puthandu feast) by a regional TV studio. As we all know, Ilayaraaja has his own whimsical ways to choose or reject a movie. We have read confirmed reports that Maestro had turned away some well-known Directors and actors when they approached him for scoring music. Moreover the music composing scene has changed dramatically with cost reduction being the main factor besides change in younger generation's music taste. Using a food parlance as an example, the Indian film music especially Hindi, Tamil and Telugu have transitioned from a traditional Thali meal style to instant fast food model. Ilayaraja has stated this fact several times during audio release functions. Though Maestro can serve an elaborate Virunthu (Symphony) or a two minutes Pizza (today's song genre), his preference is to stick to his own way of creating and composing music with live orchestration. This week I happened to watch Sathyan's movie "Puthiya Theerangal" which failed at the box-office but Maestro's songs were really melodious (a different Maestro genre). Sathyan switched to Vidyasagar last year and is back with Maestro this year. As Ilayaraja commented "Anything is possible in cinema". Old partnerships may not work in the current media frenzy movie production phase. I doubt if Kamal or Rajini would work with Maestro again - I have my own analysis for this. Ilayaraja certainly doesn't require Kamal or Rajini's endorsement/ name stamp to achieve something. The other way around is probably true because Maestro is at the zenith. Partnerships don't work when it's a one-way traffic. We will certainly revisit this issue very soon!!!!

    I for one don't have a problem when the so called creators/ Directors+ Producers return to IR when they want something earthy, emotional and grandeur at the same time.
    They should not cite the reason as "marketability" "sale-ability" as a factor and worst thing "today's Youngsters" prefer these kinda music , all these aspects should be seriously confronted as it is contentious.
    The argument of "fast food" has been there for quiet some time now and IR has mentioned that several times in last 10 years.
    I heard several of his interviews in Malayalam , telugu and just one in kannada radio channel and he has lamented his views consistently.
    still many have not taken it seriously, except that new guys come up with one or two melodies based on rural and Madurai texture and call it a great song

    Good Job, I am listening right now. Thank you. One dedicated link for Raja sir's songs was stopped couple of months ago, I was a bit annoyed then, but I am happy again..

    Commendable effort. Thanks.

    அக்கட பூமியில் ராஜா சாருக்கு அளித்த மாலையும் மரியாதையும்...திருப்பதி ஜொலிப்பது இப்படி சாஸ்த்ரீயத்தை கொஞ்சமும் குறைக்காமல் குதறாமல் தெலுங்கு வாழ் மக்கள் அதை போற்றுவதால் தான்..

    நம்மூரில் ராஜா சார் முகம் பார்த்து பம்மும் சினிமா காரர்களே ஜாஸ்தி.

    Great work. I am listening to it right now. But if you can stream it through vtuner also, I am sure you will be able to reach out to more devices out there.

    @illayarajafan,

    I also heard "Thamarai poovukkum..." from Pasumpon , in the playlist. It is by Vidyasagar, not by IR.
