Young musicians Vishal and Aditya have found themselves on a global stage as their song has been nominated at the Global Peace Song Awards in the World Music category.
Their song 'Bhalobasha' (language of love) is among two songs nominated from the whole of India. The other one belongs to the famous trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, according to a report from Times of India.
Vishal and Aditya, who are currently composing music for a horror flick, which is being directed by a former assistant of film-maker Bala, had earlier composed tunes for Gubeer, a black comedy, considered as a cult film by many.
The duo has been composing music for a long time now, as they studied in the same college.
"We both knew each other because we studied at Vivekananda College, and were part of a band there. Seeing one of our performances, we were given a break by Rotary, who asked us to compose two songs for them," Aditya told the leading daily.
When asked about 'Bhalobasha', Aditya has said they wanted to know where they stood at the global level and that triggered them to submit their song.
"We were thinking of composing a song that highlights the fact the music has no boundaries. Around the same time, we came across information on Global Peace Song Awards on Facebook, and decided to submit our song to the competition, as we wanted to know where we stand compared to our peers globally."
'Bhalobasha' has five different languages; Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Bengali and Hindi and is sung by three singers.
"Even though there are five languages, the song will never sound discordant. It is a classically oriented song and we have used one raga each for each of the five languages, but they will not seem conflicting when you hear the song," Aditya has said.
