Amit Trivedi collaborates with V Selvaganesh for The Dewarists

MUMBAI: After basking in the glory of his recent Hindi films ‘Dear Zindagi’ and ‘Udta Punjab’ in 2016, composer Amit Trivedi is rightfully excited about his forthcoming collaboration with one of the greatest Kanjira players in the country, V Selvaganesh.

Trivedi recently collaborated with Selvaganesh for the next episode of ‘The Dewarists’ Season 5. V. Selvaganesh, the Chennai based Indian percussionist, is one of the leading Kanjira (South Indian frame drum) players in the Carnatic tradition.

Trivedi’s mainstream music is so much off beat; we are so eagerly waiting to hear his track on The Dewarists Season 5. His album for the movie ‘Udta Punjab’ has been shortlisted as Best album of 2016 on iTunes recently.

Selvaganesh debuted as a composer for the Tamil film ‘Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu’ in 2008. In 2009, he composed for another Tamil film ‘Kola Kolaya Mundhirika’ where Shankar Mahadevan lent his voice a Punjabi-style Bhangra song, composed by him.

Lastly, Nucleya and Papon, the two Saavn Artists-in-Residence also collaborated for the fifth season of the music-travel show ‘The Dewarists’ which is part musical documentary and part travelogue.
