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
