     1'''Ilaiyaraja''' 
     2 
     3 
     4Prolific Tamil composer with a legendary 
     5reputation. Born as Daniel Rajayya, the 8th son 
     6of an estate supervisor in Pannaipuram, TN. 
     7Joined his stepbrother Varadarajan, a CP 
     8member, to form a music group, Pavalar 
     9Brothers, staging live concerts often as election 
     10propaganda for Left groups. Went to Madras as 
     11a teenager, where he learnt Western classical 
     12music and the Western technique of writing 
     13musical scores. Learnt Carnatic music from 
     14singer and mridangam performer T.V. 
     15Gopalakrishnan. Joined films as a member of 
     16various film orchestras. Sensational début as 
     17composer in Annakkili, using rural folk 
     18melodies. Introduced fusion effects into Tamil 
     19cinema combining Carnatic, Western classical 
     20and pop (cf. Raja Parvai). Early hits for the 
     21films of his childhood friend Bharathirajaa 
     22(Pathinaru Vayathinile). Extensively 
     23associated with playback singer S.P. 
     24Balasubramanyam and, for a while, lyricist 
     25Vairamuthu. Recent music hits notably in 
     26Mani Rathnam’s films, e.g. Raja rajadhirajan 
     27indha raja in Agni Nakshatram, followed by 
     28the songs of Anjali, etc. Commanded fees 
     29equalling those of the highest-paid actors in 
     30Tamil and was an independent star attraction 
     31until he was partially eclipsed by A.R. 
     32Rehman. Made two independent music 
     33albums, How to Name It and Nothing but 
     34Wind, both continuing his fusion experiments, 
     35as in the composition I Love You, Mozart in 
     36which he has flautist Hariprasad Chaurasia 
     37playing the raga Kalyani with a violin 
     38evocation of Mozart’s 40th Symphony. 
     39Occasionally provided lyrics and sang his 
     40compositions. Composed music apparently for 
     41c.700 films in five languages (the exhaustive 
     42filmography is virtually impossible to compile). 
     43Published two books, the European travelogue 
     44Sangeetha Kanavugal, and Vettaveliyil Kotti 
     45Kidakkudhu, addressing his philosophical 
     46preoccupations. In an essay (1996) M.S.S. 
     47Pandian demonstrates that Ilaiyaraja’s 
     48popularity represented ‘a moment of great 
     49anxiety for the musical elite’.
