Gajakesari (Music review), Kannada – V.Harikrishna

Kannada siri is a spirited mix of Ilayaraja and Keeravani. Harikrishna pulls it off in style, adorning it with tasteful orchestration! Baba Sehgal’s Maneyali appa is adequately Devi Sri Prasad’ish and catchy in an inane way, while the kuthu mix in Suin tapak is no different – functionally foot-tapping. But Tippu loads enough attitude in Ishtu divasa, with Hari creating a neat Jackson style pop sound! Aakaashavella is lovely, but very short! Hari combines a gorgeous Raja’ish melody with mild Latino flavour and an enchanting background. Hoilaare is short too, but very well orchestrated. Harikrishna is in good form here!
