Radio Idli is glad to welcome Kudpi Rajanikanth Shenoy as our esteemed contributor. Kudpimaam, as he is fondly known, is known to most online Saraswats through his omnipresence on social media.
The Kolaveri wave has swept the Karavali coast too.. and the result is Thingalavare Bi (Mangalorean white grams known for its taste and post-consumption acoustics)! The idea and lyrics for the song was conceived by Mukund Kamath, of Ideal Ice Cream fame in Mangalore. Kudpimaam, adds to this an amazing combination of his Multimedia skills! What’s more?! Mukund Kamath’s voice to the song is an “Ideal” cherry on the cake.. or should i say on the Ideal GadBad?! They say proof of the ice-cream is in eating.. Watch the video and the songa… thingalavare songa..
