Product description

This unique product stands out because it combines a great listening experience, while documenting the History of Hindi film music in an authentic and novel manner. It is a collection of 10 brilliant CDs showcasing film songs that have an eternal appeal. The duets and solos truly represent the rich canvas of Hindi film music from the 1930s to the 2000s.

The complimentary book that comes with these memorable ditties is written by Rajiv Vijayakar, whose in-depth research is evident all throughout. This book chronicles the path traversed by the Hindi film song from the year of its inception to the present day. The sweep is wide and the range fascinating.

While we have wonderful songs by legends like Noorjehan, Geeta Dutt, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, Rafi, Mukesh, K.L.Saigal in the CDs, we also get to listen to new talents Shreya Ghoshal and Hema Sardesai. The CDs and the book hold the interest of the expert as well as the uninitiated listener. The connoisseur gets to meet his favorite singers who lent their voices to immortal onscreen legends and the casual enthusiast chances upon many lovely surprises at every turn. The old world charm and lilt of the songs from an earlier era and the sheer energy of the latter day songs hold your attention every minute with never a dull moment.

The book also abounds in interesting snippets. It tells us many behind-the-scenes stories and traces the development of the music industry its highs and lows, the new trends and gives us an insight into why and how a certain star came into being while unraveling the mystique behind the success of some of the most celebrated playback singer-composer-lyricist-filmmaker-actor teams. The archival photographs some in sepia, some in color also add a new dimension and tell a riveting tale. The book is thorough and comprehensive besides being very readable. It would make an ideal gift for someone who has been passionate about film music but not in touch lately.

It would add value and liven up the mood of someone who always wanted to learn about Hindi film music and was unable to express it.
