(Free Press Release) Pune-born musical maestros Ajay and Atul Gogavale have together created masterpieces for the Hindi and Marathi entertainment industry. Coming from a non-musical background, the brothers have created a place for themselves in the musical world. Sharing the soulful journey of their life with our viewers this week, the duo discuss their decade-long career on Great Bhet on Friday, 6th April and Saturday, 7th April 2012 at 9:30 pm only on IBN-Lokmat.
Although Ajay and Atul were not supported by their family directly for music, they were never denied any assistance. Since their family could not afford the instruments for their musical endeavors, they commenced their musical ventures in temples, local bands etc. This turned out to be a learning phase for them. They started their respective careers with commercial jingles, ballets & advertisements and later went on to compose music for plays, private albums and movies. Vishwavinayak, a spiritual international non-filmy music album with Ganesha Symphonic Chants was seen top the international charts and got them the much-deserved fame. Saavarkhed - Ek Gaon, Aga Bai Areccha, Jatra, Jabardast, Viruddh, Shock, Uladhaal, Jogwa, Natrang, Singham and Agneepath are a few of the movies for which have gained attention from the masses.
The duo is also famous for their compositions on non-film albums. Ajay - Atul made use of traditional Indian instruments and arrangements to complement a choir singing Meera Bai's works, for the album Meera Kahen. They have also worked with renowned music composers like Ravinder Jain, Vishal Bharadwaj, Amar Utpal, Ashok Patki and Shridhar Phadke. The pair experimented with new sounds, along with lyricist Shyam Anuragi on singer Swapnil‘s first pop album. Their work was highly acclaimed and the album was successful mainly because of the team effort between Ajay Atul and Swapnil, and made the latter famous.
The duo bagged the National Award for Best Music Direction for movie Jogwa at the 56th National Awards, which also made them the only music directors to have won it for a Marathi movie.
