K Ramnarayan’s Paipoti  has brought two popular voices of the playback industry. Rajesh Krishnan and Hemanth, together in what the director calls a jugalbandi.

A week ahead of the audio launch of the film, starring Gururaj Jaggesh and Niranjan Shetty with Ganesh Narayan as music director, Ramnarayan tells us in an interview that three of five tracks are “different.” The other two use utensils and the human voice box as substitutes for traditional instruments. Excerpts:

Hero Hero Naane Naane

This Jugalbandi has been recorded live by Rajesh Krishnan and Hemanth. Both artistes are established in their own right and this is the first time they are coming together in a live record. It is sung for the two male leads of the film.

Avali Gawale, Avale Beautiful

Through this song, the hero proposes to his love. We did not use any electronic instruments for the song. Instead, we took people using their voices to imitate instrumental music. Surprisingly, they sound so much like the instruments themselves, it would be hard to tell the difference.

I had spotted people with such talents at a few events earlier. When I spoke to Ganesh Narayan about using them to create music, he thought it was good idea and was very supportive. Initially, we thought it would help keep the budget low, but actually the cost doubled.

We identified a lot of talents and picked the 12  best ones. We are planning to bring all of them together at the audio release.

Bittu Koladralli Sukavedi, Bittu Kodadralli Sukavide

The third song speaks of disappointment. Here too, we have none of the regular instruments. Instead, we have used plastic buckets, boxes, beer bottles and coins to bring in variety. A percussionist helped us out with this one.

The makers of Paipoti are planning to have a Tollywood star at their audio launch.
