The dream project of singer Vidhu Prathap "Nangeli" was released in Kochi on 10 November by director Lal Jose.
The song is about a mystical woman "Nangeli" and is sung by Vidhu Prathap and features the singer and his wife Deepthi.
Another unique feature of the song is it is in A capella form, a rarity in Malayalam music. Vidhu Prathap has done the accompanying vocal music himself. Listeners have appreciated the addition of local flavour in the song and music.
Soon after the lauch of "Nangeli", Vidhu Prathap shared the song on his Facebook page.
"The wait is over! And here is NANGELI my new music video. Nothing beats fresh music and nothing as sweet as our Malayalam. And what if its pure Acapella...a song entirely featuring vocals and not using a single instrument? Thanks a bunch Lal Jose my dearest Lalu chetta for launching Nangeli today, Dear friends..please do watch and share," he wrote.
