The Aaraduguluntada Song is definitely a piece I am unlikely to have notated had it not been a request. However, it was, and here this is. Aaraduguluntada is a Telugu song from a movie called Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu, released in 2013. It was composed by Mickey J. Meyer and the lyrics are written by Anantha Sriram.
I was asked to notate the songs in this video of a young girl playing several Indian songs on the violin for a student to learn. While the earnestness was sweet, the rhythm had started to seem a little suspect (and possibly accuracy and quantity of notes, though I am no expert on Indian music, I readily admit.) by the time I got to the third song. I looked up the third song to ascertain certain things and got to a more official-looking rendition. I only scored the front section of the second video, and then roughly. No second pass through, because I am sick.
It is an upbeat song. The rhythm, like any other modern music song, gets a little tricky. Given it appears to be a popular song from a possibly popular movie, though, I imagine most children will be learning this partially by ear and copying what they remember.
