Today, Salim and Sulaiman Merchant are among India’s most respected composers, having scored more than 100 films including Kurbaan, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Fashion, Band Baaja Baaraat, Aaja Nachle, Heroine, etc., around 20 TV shows and composed several records incorporating cinematic, folk, electronica and sufi influences to their music. They’ve composed for musicals such as ‘Merchants of Bollywood’ and ‘Beyond Bollywood’. Their latest & much awaited Hollywood film ‘Sold’ is already gaining a lot of appreciation at various film festivals. The duo have enthralled audiences across the world with their live concerts including performing at the opening ceremony of the FIFA World Cup. Their songs have been very inspirational especially their sports anthem ‘Chak De India’. They have really redefined the music scene in India.

From obscure villages around western Rajasthan, comes a musical tradition that has digested and belted out melodies all the way from Persia and Punjab for several centuries. The Manganiyars are the folk artists of Udaipur and their music has been passed on through generations. Their music is complex and secular, its roots spread wide, though chiefly in Hindustani classical music, but its delivery is not bound by the set rules of this tradition. The Manganiyar splits notes into improbable fractions, keeps beat with his eyes, shifts tempo as suddenly and effortlessly as a gust of desert wind moves a dune.
