In the age of remixes and recreation, if there is one artist who gives us hope, it has to be Amit Trivedi. The reluctant composer has been around for over a decade and has managed to give us music that stays with you. Be it rock style or qawwali, love ballads or folk fusion, his melodies find their way seamlessly into our system every time he touches a musical note.
Amit was to make his musical debut in Bollywood with Dev.D (2009). However, due to production delays, he arrived with Aamir (2008). And then there was no looking back. Amit makes music in his own way. No wonder his creations are raw, original and contemporary. He is a music composer for films like Wake Up Sid, Aisha, Ishaqzaade, Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, Kai Po Che, Lootera, Queen, Udta Punjab, Highway, Shaandaar, Lieber Zindagi, Manmarziyaan and Andhadhun, to name a few.
