Still working on that hot first release.



Kalyanji Virji Shah and his brother Anandji – collectively known as Kalyanji Anandji - were two of the most unlikely
Bollywood composers you could imagine. Relaxed and laid-back in person, their music was vital and exuberant. From
scoring some of Hindi cinema’s most iconic soundtracks, to a string of ‘exploitation’ movies in the 70s where a crazed
psychedelia mixed with jazz, funk and wah-wah guitars, they always made their own unique mark.
Today their work has been sampled or remixed with worldwide success by artists as diverse as the Black Eyed Peas, Bally Sagoo or cult DJ, Dan The Automator. In fact, the Black Eyed Peas used not just one, but two Kalyanji Anandji tracks (“Aye Naujawan Sab Kuchh Yahan” & “Yeh Mera Dil Yaar Ka Diwana” both included here) for their single: “Don’t Phunk With My Heart” which went on to win a Grammy in 2006.
