Susheela Raman’s K-Town debut

Susheela Raman’s K-Town debut

British musician Susheela Raman, a popular name in the world music scene, has lent her voice for the first time to a Tamil
film song.

The acclaimed singer recently recorded for the song Penne…, composed by Girishh (of Marina fame), for the film Vidiyum Munn.
Girishh says, “The film is directed by Balaji K Kumar, who has done a few English films. It is an experimental thriller and we needed a voice that was very distinct for this solo song, which will also figure as a theme in the film. It is about solitude and talks about the things that keep you awake.”

He adds, “I knew Susheela Raman through common friends in the UK, where I’m the conductor for orchestras, and felt that her haunting voice would be apt for this one.”

The British Tamil singer had earlier lent her voice for a couple of lines in A R Rahman’s Semmozhi Anthem, but this number marks her first full-fledged song for a Tamil film.
