Dichotomy of Fame is a beautiful layered song with a classical guitar and nadaswaram. The subdued plucks of the nylon string adds a wonderful life to the soulful sound of nadaswaram. The way these two instruments alternate as lead instrument is seamless. You can almost visualize a spanish beauty swaying to the music. The melody of nadaswaram seems heard before but the guitar's backing sound gives the song a unique feel. And as it is with many songs of Mr. Rahman the diverging melodies resonate into a brialliant finale as sound progresses. You just think that this is how its meant to be.
All you guitarists/keyboardist's this is a wonder song to transcribe
