Today I thought I’d post something different from my usual posts. If you really know me you’d know that I’m a TV series junkie. I watch and follow lots of TV series and sometimes I get overexcited with the plot and the characters. There are some good shows out there and I’m watching most of them :P Recently I had a small chat with some friends about the Heroes narrator. We all agreed that he was Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy). The thing that confused as though was the credits at the beginning. A lot of episodes gave credit to a ‘Voice of Shenkar’. Since we never saw this Shenkar character I had to investigate to see who he has. I now know who he is and why he gets credited.
So after some research I found out that Shenkar (or Shankar) is an Indian vocalists and composer, very well known apparently, that does the vocals on the theme and many other Heroes related songs. Yeah the theme song’s vocals are his! The Heroes wiki has some background history for this artists but the video below worth more than that.
So first here’s the Heroes’ theme song (Just listen the first 20 seconds to get the idea)
Now here’s Shenkar performing live on of his songs called ‘Hey you’
Pretty amazing huh? Well for Heroes fans I’m sure it is :P
Post your thoughts below and check the artists website here.
