Attila Laszlo (a Jazz Composer & member of Budapest symphony orchestra) who and played solo for Maestro in the Paa song:
Some interesting photos on his trip to Madurai & Chennai (Raja hospitality!!) on his MySpace:
From his bio:
"In August 2009 Attila László was invited by the Indian composer IlaiyaRaaya- who is considered the best known composer of the huge country - to play solo in the music of a film. The invitation is due to the fact that IlaiyaRaaja has known and liked his music and records since 2000. The recording took place in the company of Béla Lattman bass guitarist and János Nagy pianist in Chennai (formerly known as Madras), a city of of 7 million people. In the score of the film the exotic Indian rhythm base and melody merges with European tunes and harmonies. The 10 unforgettable days of Attila László's stay gave him opportunity to get acquainted with the people living there and their mentality. In December 2009 he was reinvited to Chennai and Maduraiba to consult on jazz composition and scoring as Raaja intends to compose a large-scale piece including elements of Indian and symphonic music and jazz."

I had a great opportunity watching 'Dhoniyum Naanum' programme on Vijay TV. Prakash Raj talks about Maestro and his work. Maestro too speaks about this film and Prakash Raj. Excellent questions posted by Gopinath. Sharing for those who have missed this program. Eagerly waiting for the film and it's (live) music.

The highlight of the programme is when Prakash Raj describes how Maestro writes every note, which strikes his mind first time that time with no going back and forth to make correction there after. Hallmark of a genius! That is a true and correct reflection of the situation. Prakash Raj takes this analogy to the life too which is quite interesting.

Last week, our "Makkal Nayagan" Ramarajan featured in Jaya TV's Thirumbi Paarkiren.
While talking about his career, he said he directed 5 movies before becoming a hero. They are Marakkamatten, Hello Yaar Pesuradhu, Marudhaani, Mannuketha Ponnu and Solai Pushpangal. He said all 5 movies had music by Gangai Amaran. His first film as actor (Hero) "Namma Ooru Nalla Ooru" also had music by Gangai Amaran. It was only from "Enga Ooru Pattukaran", his 2nd movie, he had the opportunity to work with IR.
