Noted playback singer Malaysia Vasudevan (66) passed away here on Sunday after a brief illness.

Having moved to India from Malaysia, Mr. Vasudevan made a mark in the field of Tamil playback singing with his majestic voice.

A versatile artist who could sing all genres of music with great ease, he brought in refreshing variety to playback singing. The unique timbre of his voice, the feel and energy he would lend, made his songs such as the haunting ‘Poongatru Tirumbuma’, vibrant ‘Aagaya Gangai’ or ‘Oru thanga radhathil’, stylish ‘Ennama Kannu Sowkyama’ or the moving ‘Thenkizhakku cheemaiyilae’ evergreen hits.

He also had a stint as actor and donned several roles with leading actors. His passing away is a great loss to fans of Tamil cinema.
