Amit Trivedi‘s name is synonymous with great Bollywood soundtracks. Ever since his debut in 2008 with Aamir to his latest release India’s Most Wanted, Trivedi has composed the music for various award-winning movies. Along with that, he has also performed for Coke Studio, creating fresh and memorable tracks, collaborating with artists like Kavita Seth, Shriram Iyer, and Tochi Raina in the process.
Apart from composing, he is also known for his silky and rustic voice. Having never received any professional training, it is a fascinating journey for Trivedi, who is undoubtedly one of the best Bollywood singers today.
Let us take a look at ten of his best songs:
1. “Pardesi” (2009): The multi-talented composer showcased his creativity best in one of his first works, by fusing Rajasthani folk sounds and typical rock, in addition to trippy vocals by Tochi Raina.
2. “Sham” (2010): The minimalist acoustic song by Neuman Pinto and Nikhil D’Souza (including inputs from Trivedi) creates the perfect ambience for an intimate evening with loved ones.
3. “Gubbare” (2012): Sung by Nikhil D’Souza and Shilpa Rao, this breezy number is instantly likeable with its commentary on making the best of what life brings you.
4. “Aafaton Ke Parindey” (2012): The desi-rock track sung by Divya Kumar and Suraj Jaagan perfectly depicts the fiery relationship of two troubled small-town lovers.
5. “Teriyaan Tu Jaane” (2013): Irshad Kamil’s magical words on unconditional love are brought to life by Harshdeep Kaur and Jyoti Nooran in this powerful Sufi-rock song for MTV Coke Studio Season 4.
6. “Zinda” (2013): From one of his most commercially successful albums till date, Trivedi lends his voice for the unabashed melancholic song penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
7. “Gulaabo” (2015): A trumpet intro, a steady beat, and peppy lyrics make this dance number by Vishal Dadlani and Anusha Mani just as fun to sing along to!
8. “Kinare” (2013): With poetic lyrics inspiring the dreamer in each one of us, this track by Mohan Kanan also includes soothing trumpet and sitar sounds.
9. “Yeh Fitoor Mera” (2016): A classic Arijit Singh song, this romantic piece explores the madness of love and hooks one in with its reverberating chorus.
10. “Da Da Dasse & Udta Punjab Unplugged” (2016): An absolute treat for those who loved the album of the breakthrough film on substance abuse, the mashup with its smooth arrangement and raw lyrics hits harder when vocalised by Kanika Kapoor and Amit Trivedi for MTV Unplugged Season 6.
