Full Biography of Music-director Shyam Benjamin
Kollywood is seeing a lot of new music directors and pianist Shyam Benjamin is the latest to join the bandwagon. Shyam will make his debut with Kalavu Thozhirchalai and Kanavu Vaariyam.
Shyam says, "I started playing the harmonium at the age of five. I got into light music and slowly moved into the western scene. I was part of several bands and have worked on a few jingles and short films. I've always wanted to become a composer and I gave a sample of my work to several directors.
It didn't work out then, but I continued playing music. One of my friends Muthamil, who is also a lyricist, referred my name to a director. He put me on to his friend, Krishnaswamy, an associate of Shankar and KV Anand. He liked my songs and that's how I got Kalavu Thozhirchalai. It is an offbeat script for which I have an interesting line up."
Shyam's also got Kanavu Vaariyam directed by Arun Chidambaram, the plot of which is set in a village. "Technically speaking, this is my first film as a composer. However, Kalavu Thozhirchalai will be hitting the screens first.
The shoot is still in progress for Kanavu Variyam," says Shyam, who looks forward to doing more orchestral and jazz music albums.
