Of late, we have seen Malayalam filmmakers coming forward to give chance to fresh and young music directors. This indeed is a good sign as new and young talents would get that much needed break.
With such a favourable situation, we have many upcoming musicians in the block. Here we are going to list 5 new music directors in Mollywood to watch out for.

We all loved the song Muthaanu Joy from Paavada. This fun song with a fresh tune has been composed by Aby Tom Issac who has worked as a music arranger with renowned musicians like Aplphonse, Gopi Sunder, Deepak Dev, Berny Ignatius etc.
Young music director Sankar Sharma who made his debut through Prithviraj starrer Darwinte Parinamam has definitely proved that he is here to stay. Songs like Ta Ta Tang.. and Kaathangal Kinavil did win the hearts of the people.

The situations were not much favourable for young and new musicians in the past. Beyond talent, it did take luck for someone to even get a chance in films.
In those days, the directors and producers of film were not willing to experiment with new music directors and hence the chances to come up were less.
With a change in scenario, new music directors have found some reasons to smile. Young filmmakers are too keen to experiment with new musicians.
With the advent of reality shows and many music related TV programs, youngsters have found a medium to display and prove their talent.
Apart from that, the advent of Social Media sites have also helped them a lot in popularising their works which may land them with an offer in films.
Anyhow, this trend is indeed a good one for Malayalam cinema. Definitely, it could be said that a fresh wave is hitting the music industry.
