Biography

Innovative and celebrated Indian film composer Yuvan Shankar Raja was born August 31, 1979 in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. The son of composer Ilaiyayaaja, and brother of playback singer Bhavatharini, Yuvan Shankar Raja joined the family business in 1996 at the behest of his mother. His initial recordings earned him a job offer to write music for a trailer to the 1997 movie Aravindhan, and that work was so impressive that the producers hired him to score the entire movie, earning him his first filmi credit at the tender age of 16. Though that films and his next projects failed to garner popular or critical success, he tide bean to turn with his score and soundtrack for 1999’s Poovellam Kettuppar, a hit with critics and younger people. That same year he issued his first non-film related album, the pop hit The Blast. He established himself firmly with the massively successful film and soundtrack for 2000’s Dheena. He quickly became the go to for any filmmaker looking to attract a young audience and he built his reputation on huge hits like 2001’s Nandha. His score for 2003’s Kaadhal Kondein was so popular it purportedly became the first film soundtrack ever issued on CD in India. Often credited with bringing hip-hop sounds to the Indian film industry, he would, over the next twenty years, remain one of the most prolific composers in the business and earn multiple domestic and international film awards for his work on such films as 2004’s 7G Rainbow Colony, 2006’s Raam, 2006’s Pattiyal, and 2006’s Paiyaa, as well as multiple awards for his work as a playback singer, another career that would bring him charting hits with tracks such as 2021’s “Ye Rasa” from the movie Maamanithan.
