Nobody in their right mind will ever come up with a music album titled ‘Plz….Vinaddu' (please don't listen). But, the confidence of Ashwin Palaparthi is so high that he says if anybody listens to the album once, then they will get hooked on to his music.
“I am just cautioning music lovers,” he says with an impish grin.
The vice-president (Innovation) of Applabs is a noted figure among the software testing community. But his passion for music is a little known fact to all.
“My better half in life is my music and I am completely a self-taught musician. The album is a Valentine's Day gift to all music lovers,” he says.
Very different words coming from a techie whose company ValueMinds was picked up by the software testing giant Applabs.
“Both writing software code and composing music are innovations and I find no difference between them,” he says, adding that the album will draw music lovers to its fold. The independent musician, who interacted with media persons on Thursday, informed that Indian Idol Sreeram has sung the main song of the album.
‘Plz…Vinaddu' has nine songs based on various forms of love. “The album has a patriotic song, another song highlights the love between Guru and Shishya and another on nature. Love is of various forms and that's why we are releasing it on the eve of Valentine's Day,” he said.
Apart from Sreeram, other singers in the album include Murali Krishna, Sahithi G, Vittal Rahul, Ranavi, Shashi, Deepthi, Sukanya. Upcoming lyricist Kedarnath Parimi and Ashwin have penned four songs each while Krishna Chaitanya wrote one song.
“The songs will be available in itunes. We are talking with other retail outlets to make sure that the album reaches out to large number of music lovers,” he said. For details one may visit: www.plzvinaddu.com.
