Ilayaraja was one of the earliest Indian film composers to use western classical music harmonies and string arrangements in his music scores. This multi-talented persona had compassion to music, thinking way ahead of his time and place soul and live into his compositions. Ilayaraja had composed over 4,500 songs and provided big time hit film scores for more than 950 films in various languages. As he gained fame over the early 80’s and leading to the 90’s during his peak of producing excellent music scores, Ilayaraja was conferred the title “Isaignani”,or “The Maestro”, a niche title accorded only to the finest and best music composers of our time.
Now, Ilayaraja is set to perform live at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on December 28 along with Yuvan Shankar Raja, Karthik Raja his orchestra and a troupe of talented singers.
