ENOO: Bio

ENOO - Composer/Arranger & Recording Artist.

From a very early age ENOO had his ears tuned to All Good Music…..His Mom singing & playing “Raagas” (Scales of Classical Indian Music) on the fully loaded bi-pedal harmonium (keyboard that was Mom's wedding gift) presented by very popular Duo Composers from Bollywood (Film Industry of India).

In school he achieved FIRST prize playing the Mouth Organ (Harmonica) in Music Contests. Got training in Classical Music while taking lessons on the “Veena” from Saroja Aunty that lived just across from his home in Chennai, South India.

At the age of 14 when the family moved back to Karachi, Pakistan ENOO’s interests became more practical where his mothers side of the family was very active into the music scene including his eldest uncle Karim Shahbuddin being a Film Industry/TV/Radio Music Composer & as well as his youngest uncle Ali Shahbuddin being one of the best keyboard players & arrangers (with a unique & different intro to the chord structure) in the Industry. Also, to add on to these great influence’s was his very active in the Industry cousin Salim Janjira who is multi talented, & Mirza Lakhani his brother in law who happens to be claimed as one of the best percussionist’s of Pakistan.

It was at this time that ENOO followed very closely all the unique inspirations of each of his professional musicians in the family & getting all the training essentials from his youngest uncle (Ali Shahbuddin) & cousin (Salim Janjira) ENOO became an “A” Grade musician at the Radio Station being one of the youngest artist's at the age of 17 years. Initially, he was very encouraged by Music Director "Pandit" Ghulam Qadir (brother of the popular “King of Ghazal” Mehdi Hasan) at the Radio Station & then went on to perform with a lot of different Music Composers & Singers at the TV & Film Industry Studios. ENOO’s FIRST great achievement was when TWO L.P’s (Vinyl Records) were released in which he played Lead Hawaiin Guitar (the only Hawaiin guitarist in Pakistan, at that time).

After being a very active musician at such an early age, ENOO left the subcontinent for Arabia & a few years later to the “Great Nation” of the USA. In Arabia he picked up on Middle Eastern Music & also performed at the American Embassy, Aramco Oil refinery & a bunch of prestigious locations.

With his business going on the downward trail, ENOO fortunately/co-incidentally steered towards his main interest in life … . . … …M U S I C.
