One half of the Colonial Cousins turns a year older today

Born on April 3 1955, to a Iyer family in Kerala Hariharan, son of renowned Carnatic vocalists, Shrimati Alamelu and the late Anantha Subramani Iyer turns 59 today. This talented singer has quite a few melodious hit numbers to his credit. One of the first Indian Ghazal singer/composer, he has rendered about 200 Hindi songs, over 500 Tamil songs and a hundred odd songs in other languages like Bengali, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada and Marathi. He was honoured with Padma Shri and has two National awards under his belt. Here are some of the classic songs doled out by the melody king in over two decade career. Take a look…

1. Colonial Cousins: Sa ni dha pa song that brought together the very Indian voice of Hariharan with guitarist Leslie Lewis and the result was remarkable.

2. Roja: Bharat humko jaan se pyara hai

3. Taal: Nahi saamne

4. Bombay: Tu hi re

5. Swades: Yu hi chala

6. Khamoshi: Bahon ke darmiyaan

7. Maachis: Chappa Chappa

Here’s wishing the soulful singer a very very happy birthday!
