What better song than the famous one that has become an anthem for the Kerala Boat Race otherwise called as Vallam Kali that is held annually during the festival on Onam in Kerala, India. The song is in Malayalam language that I don’t understand but the beats are so filled with power which is why it is so perfect for the boat race. You need the beat to pull the power, row and push it forward.
The song is titled Kuttanadan Punchayile and this version is performed by Ft. Stephen Devassy & The Solid Band.
However the original version was Sung by K. J. Yesudas for the 1967 Malayalam movie Kavalam Chundan. Music composed by G. Devarajan and Lyrics penned by Vayalar Ramavarma
