Loy, Ehsaan and Shankar

Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy is an award winning Indian trio consisting of Shankar Mahadevan, Ehsaan Noorani and Loy Mendonsa, who have provided music for several Indian films.


  • Shankar Mahadevan: We come from different musical backgrounds. It's our USP too. We work more like a band rather than just composers. All our compositions come out during jam sessions. I am sure we will never spilt because we understand and respect each other's creativity.
  • Loy Mendonsa: I'm often asked how we function within a trio. I tell them you must try sitting on a two-legged chair.
  • Ehsaan Noorani: (on R.D. Burman) He thought light years ahead of everyone else. He was very global in what he did. Even with limited technology and media coverage, RD did exemplary work.
  • Shankar Mahadevan: There is a very thick line between being repetitive and having your own sound. You can always re-invent yourself - think about the sounds you are using. I don't see any reason why you have to be repetitive if you have enough knowledge, enough exposure.
  • Shankar Mahadevan: Classical music is a great advantage you have. Be it during composing or arranging, classical music is like grammar.

About Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy[edit]

  • I could not take up Dil Chahta Hai. Also, Bunty Aur Babli. But I am glad that Shankar Ehsaan and Loy were able to shine in these films. I love their work in these films.
  • Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy are doing some nice songs.
  • I am a huge fan of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy ever since I 'discovered' their music in Dil Chahta Hai. Ever since, every track of theirs was a masterpiece for me, be it Salaam-E-Ishq, Kal Ho Na Ho, Lakshya.
  • Shankar, Ehsaan, Loy have been great inspiration for us.
