Shankar Mahadevan

Shankar Mahadevan is an Indian music composer and singer. He is a part of the Shankar Ehsaan Loy trio team that composes for Indian films and a playback singer. He earned his first award as a playback singer in a Tamil movie, collaborating with A. R. Rahman and winning a National Film Award for his song in Kandukondain Kandukondain. A prominent star in the Kodambakkam film industry, he gained further recognition upon the release of his first music album, Breathless, in 1998. On the title track of the album, he purports (unverifiably and quite dubitably) to sing through the whole song in a single breath. He later got into music direction and became a part of the Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy trio, composing music for Hindi films.
