SPB Not To Sing Ilaiyaraja Songs Anymore

Isaignani Ilaiyaraja the genius music composer has sent a Legal notice to S.P.Balasubramaniam for singing his songs, without proper permission. The duo are closely associated for a very long time now.

Sources reveal that SPB, Chithra, SPB Charan and others are in a world tour. Currently they are in USA and as a reaction to this notice,SPB has decided not to sing any of the Ilaiyaraja songs in the concert. He will be rendering only the songs sung by him for other composers.

Here is the Facebook post from SPB

Dear all, Greetings from US. Had great shows in Seattle and LA last weekend. Grateful for the love you all showered upon us and the profesdional way the organizers conducted the shows.
Couple of days back, an Attorney representing Shri.Iliaya Raja, sent legal notices to me, Smt.Chithra, Charan, organisers of the concerts in different cities and the managements of all the venues, which says that we are not supposed to perform compositions of Shri.Iliayaraja without his permission, if so, it is breaking the copyright law and have to pay huge financial penalities and face legal action. Let me say, I am ignorant of these legalities.
My Son designed this world tour and we kick started this SPB50 conncert tour in August in Toranto, then we performed in Russia, Srilanka, Malaysia, Singapore, Dubai and did lots of shows in India too. I did not get any feelers from Shri. Raja’s office at that time. I dont know why now when we started our US tour. As I said earlier, I am ignorant of the law. If it is a law, so be it and I obey it.
In these circumstances, our troupe can not perform Isaijnani’s compositions from today. But the show should happen.By God’s grace I have sung lots of other composer’s songs too which we will present. Hope you all will bless our concerts as usual.
I am always grateful for your love and affection.

I only request you all not to have any harsh opinions and discussions regarding this. If this is the design of God, I obey it with reverence.
Sarvejanah Sukhinobhavanthu.
