Love triangles, glitz, melodrama, music and tragi-comedy are all part of the hugely successful musical-movie genre known as Bollywood. The Rough Guide To Bollywood Gold showcases the leading singers and revisits some of the most glamorous movies from this vast and ever expanding scene.
Compiled by DJ Ritu – renowned BBC radio presenter, club DJ and compiler of the Rough Guides to Bollywood, Bhangra, Bhangra Dance and Asian Underground – The Rough Guide To Bollywood Gold takes a nostalgic trip down memory lane to the golden era of Indian film music. From Lata Mangeshkar to Mohd. Rafi and films such as Teesri Manzil, Bobby, Umrao Jaan and Andaz, it travels back in time to explore the sparkling playback voices who took audiences on a roller-coaster ride of emotion — pain, joy, hopelessness, mourning, humour and more.
Enhanced Added Value: This album contains a data track that includes an interview with the compiler DJ Ritu, music information from The Rough Guide To World Music book and travel information from The Rough Guide To India book.
