They have been in the industry for the maximum and have explored many genres and ofcourse have extended their expertise in all languages. When they sing together there is magic in the air. With one singer throwing versatility and the other adding sweet quotients to it, well ofcourse they make any song a hit. If you have made a guess that we are talking about S.P.Balasubramaniam and K.S.Chithra, then yes you are right.

Our Chinna Kuyil and Balu Sir have sung songs in thousands and have contributed a great extent to the Indian music scene. Here we take a look at some their dazzling duets.

Listen to SPB & Chithra Songs on Raaga.com

The movie Idhu Namma Aalu created a rave for duets and with Ammadi Idhu Dhan Kaadhala featuring Bhagyaraj and the graceful Shobhana, it became an instant hit.An age old song that the current generation may not be aware is 'Medhuva Medhuva'  from Annanagar Mudhal Theru.

For carnatic music lovers, The song Kannukkul Nooru Nilavu from Vedam Pudidhu would be appealing as it is based in a carnatic ragam - 'Shanmukha Priya'. Yet another song with a strong classical base- Raagam Sree Ranjini  is 'Theendai mei Theendai' sung by the duo for the movie En Swaasa Kaatre.

With the superstar's birthday approaching how could one forget the exclusive duets for his films? The best SPB- Chitra duet although was 'Annamalai Annamali' .Khushboo's lovely expressions  for the song have still been talked about.' Kondayil Thaazham Poo' from the same movie is also a good listen with good emphasis on rhythm.'Rekkakati Parakudhuaiyya' is another song worth mentioning for its notes pattern from Annamalai. Another Superstar starrer, Chitra - S.P.B hit is 'Style Style dhaan' from the movie Baasha. Who can forget Nagma's dance moves and the Rajnikanth's 'Style' in the song.

The duo has given us some of the best hummable duets of all time. They have expanded their wings to all the avenues of Indian music. Time to await for more such ever-green melodies from the stalwarts.
