DJ Rekha on Bollywood Disco, Pt. 2

DJ Rekha, producer, musician, activist, and reigning expert on all things Bollywood, returns to ARTonAIR. This time, Rekha focuses on the "Golden Age" of Bollywood, the '70s and early '80s. Indian film composers RD Burman, Bapphi Lahiri, and Kalimanji Annan ruled the Bollywood film music industry during these times, fusing western funk, disco, cabaret styles, and traditional Indian sounds.

From homegrown grassroots movements, tradition, and musical experimentation comes a wide and international array of musicians who put their own spin on national and indigenous music. Sometimes rupturing the traditions of the past and sometimes affirming them, the songs of these shows spring from the porches of the world.
