  18. Ganesh from N'Castle says:

    30/30, grown up with Illayaraja music. Part of life. For every song there has been special and unforgettable occasions and moments. Those days we our friends are very much eager to hear new songs, For us cassettes are expensive, In our town (Pudukkottai) one Tea shop who owned by Sathya ( He resembles Sathya Kamal having beard and styled like Kamal, so we call him Sathya) bought new releases we all our friends top up there hear music with ‘Dhum’ and Tea for more than an hour. 80 ‘s are the years which never come back again with full of joy and carefree attitude… Nothing But Raja’s Muzik…

  19. venkatrajan says:

    illayaraja the grammar of music.he is the heart pain reliever by his music

  20. Ilayaraja Sir is like a guru to me. With his songs only I get interested into music. I am thankful to God to hear his music especially rerecoding and orchaestration. Thanks to share with everyone.

  21. reghuram says:

    Raja sir is Nature’s grand living sound instrument. The sequence of notes that hit one’s heart comes so effortlessly to this maestro that one remains possessed for the entire time listenng to his music. I am particularly awe-struck at all the intro bgms of Raja sir. They have a unique pattern which no other can imitate nor fathom. to cite an example just listen to the intro of the Nalinakanthi piece “enthan nenjil nee thane”. Raja sir has that uncanny knack of picking up the key notes of a raga which will not be revealed until the actual pallavi is heard. In fact his into bgms are itself a great rpertoire for research on chors and carnatic music.

  22. madurai mouli says:

    We, the Tamilians are gifted by having been born here., Sivaji ,Kamal., Ilayaraja.,Kannadasan-the supremoes in their art ,world class,,who could only be duplicated,not replaced.

  23. Nandakumar. P. B. says:

    Maesto is great and cannot express about him in words. His music is a soothing effect / remedy for day to day life complexes. Not like to stop even after repeated listenings. Some addicting magic in his songs and not seen in other musicians. So we like his musics done in 70’s, 80’s & 90’s etc. Thanks to God for getting chance to enjoy his musics.

  28. Anuja Nair says:

    Chanceless, What a legend, he is…..God’s gift to Indian music. Even a child will turn silent hearing his music. No words to describe…a heavenly feeling hearing his music. Should see him atleast once in my lifetime.
