Fev 17 2007, 21h48 por pjebsenI just received the February 2007 issue of the Indian movie magazine Filmfare which contains the Filmfare Power List 2006.
As in 2005, tamil composer A.R. Rahman tops the music list.
>> The music of Rang De Basanti / Rang De Basanti kayoed the music charts, earning him this enviable position.
The Merlin of music weaves his magic with unweavering flair whether desi or videshi.
And the magic spills over into 2007 with Guru, Jodha Akbar and Lajjo.
Strength: He can look Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra in the eye and say no.
Weakness: Too damn slow. His taciturn nature is often mistaken for arrogance.
Yes it's true: Every musician today, with exception, is a Rahman clone.
Filmfare Awards: 17 (8 in the North and 9 in the South) <<
The full music Top 10
1) A.R. Rahman
2) Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy (Shankar Mahadevan, Ehsan Noorani and Loy Mendonsa)
3) Himesh Reshammiya
Fev 3 2007, 9h56 por tezasterSome bollywood/indian/hindi/desi/hindi soundtrack music coming in near future:
A R Rahman - Guru
Nothing I need to write. The soundtrack of this movie has already been a huge hit. And a true master-piece from the maestro. Songs like Tere Bina, Hariharan and Alka Yagnik's Ae Hairathe, Maryam's Mayya Mayya, Shreya Ghoshal's Barso re have been topping the charts for weeks now.
Vishal - Shekhar - Honeymoon Travels Private Limited
Really Fresh sounds. Sunidhi Chauhan rocks in Sajnaji. Other awesome songs are: Shankar Mahadevan's duet with Vishal: Albela.
Pritam - Just Married
Only song that I was able to endure after couple of repeats was Daler Mehndi's Doha.
Vishal Bharadwaj - Blue Umbrella.
Vishal Bharadwaj never fails to impress. His music is always earthy, appropriate, sweet..and long lasting.
Rabbi Shergil - Dilli Heights
Rabbi's album was a huge success. It had the sweet folk sound blended with catchy western tunes. Hopefully he will recreate the same magic with his first soundtrack.
Nov 26 2006, 19h37 por pjebsenFor quite a while, one of my favorite sources for legal downloads of bollywood songs and soundtracks of Indian movies in general has been emusic . They charge 25 US cents or less a song (to US customers), and most of their (non-copy protected) MP3 files have better audio quality than iTunes downloads.
emusic features a large variety of Indian soundtrack albums (here's a link to their Indian film section).
Since their selection is vast, I am very much interested in your recommendations. Have you discovered any great Indian film music at emusic?
Here are the albums I've bought so far - they are all great:
Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
feat. Abhijeet, Asha Bhosle, Kumar Sanu, Lata Mangeshkar, Manpreet Kaur, Pamela Chopra, Udit Narayan
Aa...Aah (A. R. Rahman)
Godfather (A. R. Rahman)
feat. Abhijeet, Alka Yagnik, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Kumar Sanu, Shankar Mahadevan, Udit Narayan
One 2 Ka 4
feat. Alka Yagnik, Clinton, Lata Mangeshkar, Poonam Bhatia…
