Where there is sound, there is music! If you are one of the person who lives for music, all day, all night long, you can live your life through music, today is the day to cherish.
India is a very musically activated country, though good or bad everyone listens to music. So, excluding all the bad musicians, this World Music day, you can take a pledge that you will stop listening to all the bad musicians out there. This will not only help our country to elevate its music taste, it will also help the good musicians to experiment more.
Here are the top music composers who understand the heart and soul of music:
1. A. R. Rahman
Hands down, he is the master of music and ‘Mozart of South’. He has not only represented South India well but his music is known to the entire country and internationally, he is much acclaimed. From Roja to now Sanju, he is still very much relevant and the rage for him amongst all masses and classes of the country is huge. The best thing about his music is that it hits you a bit late and then it stays forever.
2. Amit Trivedi
His first blockbuster was ‘Dev D’, then there was no stopping for him. Whether it is folk, fusion, rock, jazz or peppy numbers, he will always do this with finesse. There is a uniqueness in all his albums and that is what cuts the crowd.
They truly understand the trend very well but never makes their music crass to appeal the audience. The music composer duo Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravijani started their journey with Sujoy Ghosh’s ‘Jhankar Beats’, you still remember and hum those songs ‘Suno naa’ or ‘Tu aashiqui hai’ and you also love the very recent ‘Nashe si chadh gayi’, now you know their connect with audience!
He might be labelled as the plagiarism King but you overlook the fact of how many original hit tracks he have created. ‘Kamli’, ‘Dhoom machale’, ‘Phir le aaya dil’ and the entire album of ‘Life in a Metro’ are beautiful, soulful and peppy. He has a lot of talent which no one can deny.
5. Vishal Bhardwaj
Vishal Bhardwaj is more acclaimed as a film director but as a music director, he is very much under-rated. All the songs in his movies are composed by him like the entire albums of movies like ‘Omkara’, ‘Kaminey’, ‘Ishqiya’, ‘Haider’ and many more. Most of his music is very soulful and like his love for Shakespeare’s literature, his music has a lot of depth.
