Magizhini ManimaaranPublished: February 2, 2015
Magizhini Manimaaran is a playback singer in the Tamil film industry who got a break as a playback singer in the film Kumki. Magizhini is noted for singing the famous song “Soi Soi” from the film Kumki, which was composed by D. Imman.
Hailing from an agricultural family at Malaipuram near Vedanthangal in Kanchipuram district, Maghizhini had lost her father when she was studying 10th standard. Her interest in folk songs led her to become part of Buddhar Kalai Kuzhu, a folk troupe which specialises in ‘parai’ drumming and dance. The troupe is headed by Manimaran who eventually became her life-partner.
In a candid chat, the couple exchanged their views about ‘parai’ drum as a cultural signifier and how they wanted to reverse the art form and also about the magical debut. Maghizini was quick to say that her husband was her guru and inspiration.
