A short while ago, as we were on Apple’s iTunes digital media store to buy a Hindi song Duniya Ki Sair from Around the World in eight dollars) and that old Tamil classic Ninaipathellam Nadanthuvittal (from Nenjil Oru Alayam) for our iPhone our mind wandered on a nostalgic trip to the many happy moments spent listening to the grand old man of South Indian music P.B.Srinivas.
Here are some of our P.B.Srinivas favorites in the Tamil language.
