EDITORS’ NOTES

Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy explore what it’s like growing up with dyslexia on the soundtrack to Taare Zameen Par, Aamir Khan’s award-winning debut feature. The trio deliver a moving title track with vocals by Shankar Mahadevan, weaving traditional instruments like tabla and sitar through a piano melody. Khan takes the mic for “Bum Bum Bole” in a playful reminder to hold on to childlike wonder, and pop-rock gem “Jame Raho” brings a bit of edge exploring the film’s boarding school setting. But exquisitely fragile “Maa” is the true standout, featuring another heartrending performance by Mahadevan.
