SEL SUMMER 2012

By jparlane, posted in Music

What makes the sound of Shankar Ehsaan Loy so outstanding? Perhaps the answer lies in the band’s musical diversity (hindi to classical and beyond!) or perhaps it’s just the lucky combination of individual musical talent that works so well together. By blending mesmerizing vocals, an electrifying band and groundbreaking composition, SEL have certainly made their mark both in the film and music industries.

SEL’s musical footprint continues to spread beyond the band itself. Ehsaan teamed up with Fender guitars to create his very own Ehsaan Noraani signature Stratocaster – which is an amazing achievement for any musician.  Beginning guitar lessons in his early teens, Ehsaan attended the Guitar Institute of Technology in the USA and his career began to excel soon after. Not long after returning to India the collaboration and magic of Shankar Ehsaan Loy began!

Boasting over 45 number one hits, you may have heard their music in some of your favourite movies, however, there is nothing like experiencing the sound of SEL live on stage.

SEL will be performing live in Australia for the first time ever in February 2012. To make summer 2012 one to remember purchase your tickets here.
