Salim Sulaiman for Emmy!!

salim-sulaimanIn what could turn out to be another golden moment for Indian music this year, the prolific composer duo of Salim Merchant and Sulaiman Merchant (Salim-Sulaiman) have been nominated for Emmy Daytime awards under the Outstanding Original Song – Children’s and Animation category. The composers won the nomination for their work in the September 8, 2008 episode of the Nickelodeon series the Wonder Pets!, titled Save the Bengal Tiger. The track was called We Like Being Small. Incidentally, the Bengal Tiger featured in this episode was lent voice by Nandita Das. The awards shall be announced on August 30 at a show hosted by Vanessa Williams at the Orpheum Theatre, LA.
The composer siblings have been rather dormant this year, with their only work so far being the two superb tunes for 8×10 Tasveer.
