If I was there in such a scene I would have been dead ; KS Chitra
If the Nightingale of Malayalam was telling about the Songs of Hariharan she will tell with a single line that “Silky voice”. She tells that his voice itself is like a song and will feel like sleeping in a silk bed when we hear his voice it’s that much smoother. She told that before she met him she had heard some ghazals sung by him and before doing her first duet with Hariharan she had seen him doing stage shows with AR Rahman and Raja sir. She did duet with him couple of times but had got chance to met him only twice or thrice . Mostly the recordings of both had taken in different places . She said that Hariharan is a singer who always do spot improvisation and she had felt a bit feared when singing duet with him as she need to cover up his voice and improvisation. She also had got chances to spend stage with him couple of times too. It’s too good to hear his voice and he is always there to support and to clear doubt when we ask him. Chitra said that she’s still a student in music and had lots of things to study from such a talented singer like Hariharan sir. She also said that Hariharan at times takes break from his busy schedule and will leave to his guest house with percussion artists and will have relaxation in such a way. He loves to do experiments in music and an example is Colonial Cousins. He had visited Chitra when she delivered her kid and some other days too and had felt that he had a control in good and a diet conscious too said Chitra. When she was asked about her favorite songs of Hariharan her reply was that she loves to hear ghazal albums of him , uyiree , vennilave, enne taalat and all was her favourite among his songs.
