Kalyanji-Anandji

aka Kalyanji Veerji Shah (b. 1928) and Anandji Veerjee Shah (b. 1933). Music composers; started career as musicians in film orchestras and conductors of live bands. The elder brother, Kalyanji, a freelance musician, pioneered a virtual revolution in film music when he imported a claviolin and first played it to get the sinuous snake music composed by Hemanta Mukherjee in Nagin (1954), the first instance of electronic instrumentation in Hindi film. He started as music director for Babubhai Mistri and Ravindra Dave. Subsequent electronics-dominated music for films by Dave, Manmohan Desai and Prakash Mehra was central to musicals with Shammi Kapoor (Bluff Master), Rajesh Khanna (Sachcha Jhutha, Bandhan) and Bachchan (Don, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar, Zanjeer), preceding e.g. Bappi Lahiri and Ilaiyaraja. Their music for Saraiya’s Saraswatichandra was a big hit. Currently known more for their live concerts in India, at Madison Square Garden in New York, the Wembley Arena in London and in South Africa, often featuring Bachchan in stage extravaganzas. Had a major recent success with Rajiv Rai’s Tridev, its song Oye oye becoming one of the most popular in 80s Hindi cinema.
