    Legendary composer Naushad passes away

    heya all...renowned music composer Naushad Ali passed away yesterday at the age of 87. he's credited with introducing both Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammed Rafi and was the first indian composer to use sound mixing. some movies that he composed for: mere mehboob, pakeezah, mughal-e-azam, kohinoor, taj mahal...a definite loss to the indian music world....any thoughts on his music? or even, the importance of 'old' filmy music to contemporary bollywood/indipop songs...

    yes that is very sad indeed .. a legendary composer he was who gave us some divine music .

    thoughts on his music .. he pioneered the use of orchestra and multiple mikes in recordings .. and it is well known that his compositions were classical music based folk songs of UP from where he hailed .

    he deserves a warm salute.

    What can I say about this great composer apart from that his music was as part me as the ears on my head.

    People of my generation grew up with his delicate & intricate melodies he gave us love hope and faith in a world where there is very little.

    God grant him paradise for the pleasure he has brought to billions worldwide.
