I think it is a very good sign to hear fresh and New voices in Tamil Songs, especially when Tamil Cinema is making a move towards giving a break to new faces. The new singers are all good and their voices have a youth appeal. What do my friends have to say about this? May I know?

Devan Ekambaram - Playback Singer

O Maria O Maria for the Tamil movie Kadhalar Dinam.

Devan's foray into the Tamil music scene was incidental. Though O Maria O Maria might have been his launch-pad into the film world, Ore Nyabagam from Minnale brought him fame. Later he was approached by the Music Maestro Ilayaraja for the movie Time. Devan was thrilled to work with him. Then came Smayiyai from Kandukondain Kandukondain which was a hit. Recent Hit, May Madha megham from Shahjahan. Till today Devan has sung for 80 films in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and Kannada with 90 songs under his belt. He also has handled Rahman's concerts abroad.

Sriram Parthasarathy - Playback Singer

Still swinging to "Dhind Dhind Tara"?
Sriram Parthasarathy - vocalist, veena-ist, Harmonium-ist, just about everything musical.
Sriram, not a total new-comer. For he is already well known for his rendering of "Vendum Vendum" (Dhill) and Umma (Vedham) and of course, Dhind Dhind Tara (Poovellam un Vaasam).
He hails from a musically gifted family. Now 20, Vidhyasagar gave him a break in Vedham, then Dhill & Poovellam un Vaasam. His recent song is Naliravil Kaithi from Paarthale Paravasam under A R Rahman.
He has also lent his voice for various ad' jingles.
In 1997, he was awarded the Best Vocalist of Chennai District. Among the numerous awards that he has received, he cherishes the awards received from Music Academy in 2000 - Best Vocalist and Best concert award - the most.
He is currently doing his BA (Music) final year from the University of Madras and plans to pursue his MA. His advice to youngsters is "Practice makes a man perfect". Don't leave practice even if there is a scarcity of chances.
