Jessica is the daughter of my friend Balakrishna Varma (whose paintings have been showcased in this blog earlier) and my little sister. We have been planning to do a recording but never had the chance to do it. Last Saturday I hopped over to Avalon and got Jess to record this beautiful song which is her current favorite. And I was totally amazed by her wonderful voice and a beautiful, confident rendition! Well, it is not much surprising though because Jess' mother Shobha Varma is daughter of Gopalakrishna Iyer, who is Guru to the Karnatik Saxophone player Kadri Gopalnath. Shobha aunty is also the niece of the famous trio in Karnatik music - T V Gopalakrishnan, T V Ramani and T V Vasan.
Here is Jessica singing Kangal Irandaal from the Tamil movie Subramanyapuram. This is her very first recording. Let her know what you think.
