You must have seen today’s awesome Google Doodle paying tribute to the legendary Bollywood composer RD Burman on his 77th birth anniversary.
Popularly called Pancham Da, he was renowned for his experimental style, infusing western-styled disco and jazz music into Bollywood songs. He composed music for more than 330 movies including hits like Sholay, Yaadon ki Baraat and Masoom.
Amidst the plethora of movies and songs he composed, not many know he composed music for Odia Films too!
Like this lesser known Odia song – ‘Aa Aa Nida Aa’ which he composed for the movie ‘Anupama’. Kumar Sanu lent his voice to this brilliant composition making it one of the most soothing pieces ever composed.
Hear it to feel the magic come alive again.
RD Burman passed away at the age of 54 on January 4, 1994 leaving behind an unmatched legacy.
We are sure even the generations to come will also enjoy your music! Thank you Pancham Da.
