M. Jayachandran Biography
Engineer turned music composer M Jayachandran has learnt the art of balancing popular music with a connoisseur's selection. Jayachandran mesmerised Malayalam film audiences to such an extent that at one point last year, virtually all the film chart-busters were his composition. Now, a Kerala state award, a Filmfare award and at least 15 other recognitions later, Jayachandran does one thing that helped him mature as a musician: Listen to World Music.
That perhaps explains the eclectic sounds, tunes and melodies he creates. His hit numbers include the foot-tapping racy beats (Pineapple penne, Komalavalli), in novel sounds (Chakkarmavinte kombathirikkana), sweet melody (Kallayi kadavathe, Chentharmizhi, Manikkuyile) and soulful compositions (Akale, Raakili than, Innaleyente..)
