Nice find Meena. We can only wish it was longer than the 2 minute clip. It is interesting it is done in the style of music label promotional material ( called EPK - Electonic Press Kit ) where they cut between songs and interview.

For those who are french-challenged, like me, here is a google translation.. with all the funny imperfections...
-----------
Born in India from the south in a family of amateurs of music, Sowmya initially was initiated with the song by his/her father before following the teaching of S. Ramanathan, an eminent musicologist and famous singer of the style Sangeetha Kalanidhi, and supplemented its training with Smt. T Muktha, of the duet Brinda-Muktha. In parallel, Sowmya A continued studies of chemistry in Madras from which it leaves, holder of a control, in 1992. Rewarded by the many ones and prestigious price for song, it is also on the initiative of a festival of carnatic music, d' an encyclopaedia on Cd rom on the same subject. Impassioned technology it was the first artist of India of the south to record didactic video Cd and assembled with friends data processing specialists the Carnatica gate, on which it gives courses of song. Its career of singer carried out to turn to Asia (Honkong, Malaysia, Singapore), in Oceania (Australia, Nouvelle Zealand), in the United States and in Europe (Kingdom Plain and France). Filmed with the Theatre of the City (Paris).

VK,
Holder of not a 'control' but a masters degree from madras University.
The french text sounds as though she sings in the bANI of sangeetha kalanidhi (instead of adding that to the name of S.Ramanathan)!

Meena,
Thanks. Just heard Sowmya (had trouble downloading it at first). Though it is a short clip, her voice sounds beautiful. Wonder what else she sang besides the SankarAbharaNAm in Paris...

How come lady performer is called 'vidUshi'? Though 'vidUshi' means 'wise woman', it is the feminine form 'vidUshaka' - a jester ; does not seem to be feminine form of 'vidvAn'.

Eh? The female equivalent of 'vidvAn' is 'viduShi', not 'vidUShi'!

Song from the recent movie "Achamundu Achamundu": http://www.raaga.com/play/?id=157205
Hard to believe it's the same Sowmya!

A catchy song with some carnatic overtones without sounding too carnatic! (Charukesi?). For Sowmya, this is probably all child's play :)

Quite an attractive song, indeed! Can't catch the ragam but sounds rather similar to veTri koDi kaTTu from Padaiyappa (to my ears anyhow): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0Yt7mQ8oKY

Yeah, maybe a hint of cArukEsi. But like I said, I'm a total dud at looking for ragas in film music.

A few years ago, an opera-loving rasika played for us a very unusual home-recording. To our astonishment we heard "O sainte médaille", Valentin's aria from Faust sung by Smt. Sowmya! (of course the baritone's aria had been transposed to an appropriate tessitura). Very sporting of her to make the effort and play along with an unusual request !
