Featured Composer: R. D. Burman

Posted in Featured Composer on April 20, 2010 by eldiabolik

Rahul Dev Burman (or Pancham, to call him by his nickname) has got to be one of the most influential of all the great Bollywood composers.

His 280+ film composing career is astonishing, you can find his name on the credits of so many Bollywood classics of the 70’s and 80’s.

For a more detailed information on Burman, check out the Wiki page:   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R.D._Burman

A documentary on Burman’s life was made in 2008.  I’ve not been able to see it yet, I’m sure it will be fascinating.

Caravan

Sholay
