With only a matter of days to go until Shankar Mahadevan, Ehsaan Noorani and Loy Mendonsa hit Australian shores, it is so exciting to be able to host the first ever Shankar Ehsaan Loy Australian tour and experience the magic of the Three Kings of Bollywood live!
For a software engineer turned music composer (Shankar), a guitarist (Ehsaan) and a keyboardist (Loy) with backgrounds in plays, television and jingles, the guys each bring a wealth of experience and talent to their trio.
This success, however, has not come without hard work. During the band’s first foray into composing, the movie director Mukul Anand died mid movie, with the film never to be released. The band then went on to compose for several more films that failed to get noticed.
The turning point for SEL’s career was with the movie Dil Chanta Hai. This fame was also assisted by Shankar’s title track to his 1998 album of the same name “Breathless”. The song “Breathless” contains three minutes of a near endless stream of vocals, without a break or, it seems, a pause for breath! Have a listen to it here.
If you don’t know SEL by name, you’ll certainly know them by sound, and now every album they produce seems to just get better and better. When the band come together, they emanate an individuality, passion and excitement that ensures each project and each concert is one wild ride!
