Playback singing in India first appeared somewhere around the year 1930 and since then has become a national tradition for most of the movies and has even influenced Hollywood to start using singers to pre-record their movie soundtracks. Because of Bollywood’s popularity, a lot of other film industries throughout the country have been heavily influenced and have started spreading all over the world.
Today everyone has heard of the Tamil Film Industry, Telugu Film Industry, and a lot of others who have appeared out of the different states in India. The Telugu film and music industry have accumulated a lot of experience when it comes to playback singing, which is why they have become a big favorite when it comes to film or music lovers.
Another great thing about these soundtracks or scores is that after the movie’s release, most composers of the music and directors of movies are willing to sell them as separate albums. This means that everyone interested in the music, singers, lyricists or composers can easily get access to the album’s information or even buy the album itself.
