RDâÂÂÂÂBurman composed for more than 300 films in a career spanning 30 years
This weekend, a group of music enthusiasts is going to deconstruct the thin line between imitation and inspiration at a talk on Hindi film music. The works of RD Burman, Shankar-Jaikishan and OP Nayyar will be discussed at the event.
Shankar-Jaikishan ruled from 1949 to 1986
“Many tried to imitate a sound that worked well with listeners in that period. In fact, film producers would encourage music directors to do so. The music of Laxmikant-Pyarelal and Kalyanji-Anandji was close to the sound created by Shankar-Jaikishan and Burman,” says Ramesh KV, one of the speakers. “If you listen to the orchestration of a song, you will think it belongs to Burman, but it actually is by someone else,” he adds.
The full panel includes R Balaji, Shankar Iyer, Archisman Mozumder and Subramanian Iyer.
