About the program:
Jazz was the popular American music in the 1930’s and 40’s, widespread across the world. Whenever American solders travelled, they carried their music with them. After World War II and the end of the British Raj, many jazz musicians in India found themselves without a job. Soon the Hindi film industry beckoned, and thus was born the art of fusing jazz-like structures into Hindi film music.

The program traces the history of jazz and the evolution of this trend in Hindi films inthe 1950s, spotlighting music directors like C. Ramchandra and R.D. Burman and others who used these elements to create some of the most unforgettable jazz-influenced songs in the history of Hindi Cinema.
