That language is not a barrier to music is amply illustrated in this track “Thuli Thuliyaai” by Vandana Srinivasan. I got hooked to this Tamil song the first time I heard it. While I don’t completely understand the lyrics of the song, I instantly connected with the music. That is what matters in the end, right?
Srinivasan is based in Chennai, India. She trained in Carnatic music before branching off to make her name as an independent artist. “Thuli Thuliyaai” is a collaboration with Shanker Tucker, an American musician, who works with musicians in India and the US.
