Track of the Week #21

"Amen" is an upcoming Malayalam film starring Indrajith (brother of popular actor Prithivraj), Fahadh Faasil and Swathi Reddy. Directed by Lijo Jose Pellissery (the man behind Malayalam films "Nayakan" and "City of God"), the music for "Amen" has been taken care of by Prashant Pillai.

After his studies, Prashant worked with AR Rahman in Chennai before moving up North where he began to work on jingles and short film scores. His first feature film score was for director Lijo Jose Pellisery’s "Nayakan" in 2010, and the album was released by Prashant’s mentor, AR Rahman himself. Prashant has since worked on a number of films, and most recently featured on the soundtrack for Chiyaan Vikram’s film "David", for which he composed two tracks. Read the full music review here

Our chosen track this week is "Shaapp", an upbeat song with a rural feel to it. We’re loving the video as well – the entire thing has been filmed in a single shot! Check it out by clicking here.
