Naadha Vaibhavam - Theme song by Ramesh Vinayakam

The 30th year celebration of Art of Living begins in Chennai with a carnatic musician ensemble, "Naadha Vaibhavam", meaning Celebration of Music. To encompass the different sounds of music and the celebrative nature of music, Shri Ramesh Vinayakam was requested to compose the Theme Song for the programme. He is a music composer and director and has been trained in both carnatic and western school of music. He has quite a number of hits to his credit and he has brought out many devotional albums as well.

He has done a magnificent masterpiece, that encompasses all the different genre of music. While it is not a fusion, he has retained the traditional feel of each genre (from Carnatic to Hindustani to Western to tamil folk to Irish) and yet, has brought them all together, just to give the message of how Universal, Music (Naadham) is. A real tribute to music.

The song lyrics has been written by Shri Ravi, Ramesh Vinayakam and David Pascal and has a galaxy of lead singers like Unnikrishnan, Sanjeev Abhyankar, Shankar Mahadevan, Srinivas, K.S.Chitra, Rita, Manikkam Vinayakam, Vijaya Shankar and instrumental greats like Karaikudi Mani Sir, Lalgudi Krishnan, Veena Parthasarathy. 

This is a treat for all music lovers.. The song will be played on 30th January 2011 at Shriram - The Gateway, Perungaluthur, Chennai.
