The last decade involves an finish in just a few hours – in actual fact, it may need ended already within the some components, by the point you learn this publish. It has been an eventful decade in each regard, equally so in music. I’ve written a bit on among the key musical developments in Bollywood from a composer angle, right here. This publish, nevertheless, isn’t in regards to the decade in fact (I did have lofty ambitions of doing a decade checklist, however don’t assume that’s taking place now), it’s my annual ritual of trying on the yr’s music and selecting my favourites, now for the 11th time. The developments have continued just about as they did the previous 2-Three years. Bollywood continued to disappoint, by and enormous, regardless of two unimaginable soundtracks within the first quarter, and Malayalam and Tamil – the 2 different industries that I keenly observe –  continued to tick together with some extra proficient debutants becoming a member of the fold.

The roundups observe my regular format – I’m going by film launch dates (album launch date for the indie/pop checklist), and this yr it’s again to my regular set of lists: Bollywood, Malayalam, Tamil, Indian Indie/Pop and a miscellaneous checklist masking the film songs from different languages I’ve managed to compensate for throughout the yr. Playlists have been created on Youtube and Apple Music, full to the extent of availability on the platforms.

Hope you benefit from the playlists. Want you all an exquisite new yr and a brand new decade!
