#LISTEN: Vidya Vox feat Vandana Iyer in Pallivaalu Bhadravattakam

Vidya Vox the Youtube singing sensation recorded this song in 2016 with her sister Vandana Iyer in Kerala. 

“Pallivalu Bhadravattakam” is a folk song from Kerala and this song’s vibe inspired Shankar Tucker and Vidya to write their own original lyrics and English spin!

Lyrics below the video!

Jump in the deep end
Tryna swim but you’re sinking
I don’t know the reason
Just needed something different

Don’t gotta hear what they’re speaking, No no
Don’t gotta take what they’re giving
Remember the meaning
This old folk song we’ll be singing

I’ma raise my arms high
I’ma touch the skyline
I’ma sing it loud like
Let me, be free

Pallivaalu bhadravattakam
Kayyilentum thampuratti
Nallacchante thirumumpi chennu kali
Kali thudangi anganangane

Pallivaalu bhadravattakam
Kayyilentum thampuratti
Nallacchante thirumumpi chennu kali
Kali thudangi

Pallivaalu pallivaalu
Pallivaalu pallivaalu
Anganangane
Pallivaalu pallivaalu
Let me, be free

Heartbeat raising
What you feel when your feet hit the pavement
Keep on reaching
Hold on to what you believe in

Don’t gotta learn what they’re teaching, no no
Don’t believe what they’re preaching
Remember the meaning
This old folk song we’ll be singing

I’ma raise my arms high
I’ma touch the skyline
I’ma sing it loud like
Let me, be free

Pallivaalu bhadravattakam
Kayyilentum thampuratti
Nallacchante thirumumpi chennu kali
Kali thudangi anganangane

Pallivaalu bhadravattakam
Kayyilentum thampuratti
Nallacchante thirumumpi chennu kali
Kali thudangi

Pallivaalu pallivaalu
Pallivaalu pallivaalu
Anganangane
Pallivaalu pallivaalu
Let me, be free

Vedadha vahan mere
Pogam nu tampuratti
Dare ga pur sanneri kannil
Chinnal kunnu anganangane

Porega pare ga vedham
Asuresha dharigare
Parmesha putri raghupatra
Nyan no tera anganangane

Pallivalu bhadravattakam
Kayyilentum tampuratti
Nallcchante tirumumpi cennu kali
Kalitutanni anganangane

Pallivalu bhadravattakam
Kayyilentum tampuratti
Nallcchante tirumumpi cennu kali
Kalitutanni
