About Shankar Ehsaan Loy:
Each member of this trio brings his own unique talents and experiences to the group, combining the Carnatic and Hindustani vocal tradition (Shankar), Western Rock (Ehsaan) and a deep understanding of fusion including a virtual mastery over the Electronic Synthesizer (Loy). They continue a tradition quite common in Bollywood Music, that of partnerships between music composers contributing and pooling their individual strengths, sometimes combining deep knowledge of Hindustani (North Indian) or Carnatic (South Indian) classical music and technical expertise as composers and orchestral arrangers. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy probably represent the first ‘trio’ of music composers to entertain Bollywood audiences with their chart-topping music.
The eternal quest among Bollywood’s music composers has been to create interest among younger audiences who tend to be inspired more by musical themes and influences from the west. Since a film’s music (Soundtrack) is a very influential and critical component of commercial and critical success required and achieved or sometimes squandered at the box office, this quest to “deliver a film” has always inspired music composers to create tunes which combine the best of both traditional Indian music and popular western or international influences and an overwhelming majority of Bollywood’s most popular music has been composed based on Classical Indian Rāgas (in Sanskrit “Raga” is literally “colour” or “mood”). Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy have successfully bridged that gap. They have won and continue to win critical and commercial acclaim and several awards from the Bollywood Press and Magazines, TV Channels and a National Film Award (Kal Ho Naa Ho, 2003. Their success owes to several contributing factors, among which are the adoption of interesting musical instruments and sounds as part of their orchestral palette, introduction of new voices weaned on popular TV Musical Talent shows and an obsession for the right musical ‘feel’ for the movie scene leading into a song sequence.
The trio won several awards including –
Filmfare awards for Bunty Aur Babli, Kal Ho Naa Ho
RD Burman Award for Dil Chahta Hai and
Star screen Awards for Mission Kashmir, Bunty Aur Babli, Dil Chahta Hai.
In 2004, they bagged the National award for the film Kal Ho Naa Ho.
Shankar has recently won the National Award for best Singer for the song Maa from the film Tare Zameen Par.
They have widely recognized for their work on the film My Name Is Khan winning the GiMA award & Screen award for their work.
More recently Shankar Ehsaan Loy have received much acclaim for their work on the film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara for both the songs as well as the background score of the film.
They won the NDTV Indian of The Year Award for their contribution to the field of Music & also won for Entertainer of the Year for their work on the film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
