Kali Kalam – Nithin Raj

8903244374970

Born and raised in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, Nithin Raj matured from being a child singer to singing backing harmonies for A.R. Rahman but, on this solo effort, “Kali Kalam” sounds like the missing link between pub rock and punk rock. The opening of the song – sung entirely in Malayalam – sounds just like Los Del Rio’s “Macarena” but, the sound that follows next, could not be more of a tangent as Nithin’s vocals follow a track that streams adrenaline, a compulsive beat, and sheer good-time rock and roll energy.  “Kali Kalam” is fresh, loud, and fast, and the riffs and rhythms are fuel-injected R&B, with softer passages thrown in for good measure.
