LIGHT OF THE UNIVERSE: Essays On Hindustani Film Music
LIGHT OF THE UNIVERSE: Essays On Hindustani Film Music
Description
From the Jacket:

Starting with the premise that Hindustani cine-song and cine-music has been the main narrative, rather than a pleasant diversion for the movie-loving public, the author has undertaken a journey into the enchanting world of singers, musicians, lyrists and assessed their contribution as powerful creators of popular culture as interpreters of the subcontinental ethos, people aspirations and desires, and as bold painters on the canvas of time. They capture the very processesof history and struggles within cultures that have shaped our lives in last one century.

About the Author:

Dr. Ashraf Aziz teaches anatomical sciences at the Howard University, Washington. Hindustani film music and popular culture of South Asia are his major interests. He has been writing extensively on the subject of a long time with rare insight and original interpretation.
