The unsung singer, whose voice, which is often mistaken as the voice of one of the greatest legends of the South Indian Film Industry.
The latter being SPB, the former is Mano.
Like a lot, i was thinking of Mano as yet another singer in the industry. Its only in the recent times I realized that many of my favourite numbers were in fact sung by Mano and like many, i have been assuming it as SPB.
Mano's hit numbers are from late 80's when he sang one of the greatest hits of all time for Ilayaraja in "Enga Ooru Paattukaaran" for the song Shenbagame Shenbagame.From there, Mano has rendered his voice for quite a good number.
Some of my favourites from Mano, of which i thought many of them were sung by SPB
Vaa Vaa Kanna Vaa
Manyie Mani Kuile
Anbe nee enna
And here is the one which i was thinking all these days as sung by Kamalhassan
I believe there are quite a good number of songs that can be added to the above list.
As many say, Mano's voice is very identical to SPB.The more i hear his songs, the more am able to identify his voice distinctively.
It always surprises me, when i discover that one of my old favourites was sung by Mano.
