RD Burman Birthday Date: June 27th

Rahul Dev Burman (27 June 1939 – 4 January 1994) was an Indian music director. From the 1960s to the 1990s, Burman composed musical scores for 331 films. Burman did major work with his wife, Asha Bhosle and Kishore Kumar and scored many of the songs that made these singers famous. He has also scored many songs sung by his sister-in-law, Lata Mangeshkar. Nicknamed Pancham, he was the only son of the composer Sachin Dev Burman.

He was mainly active in the Hindi film industry as a composer, and also provided vocals for a few compositions.He served as an influence to the next generation of Indian music directors, and his songs continue to be popular in India and overseas.

Burman’s first wife was Rita Patel, whom he had met in Darjeeling. Rita, a fan, had bet her friends that she would be able to get a film-date with Burman. The two married in 1966, and divorced in 1971. The song Musafir Hoon Yaaron (“I’m a Traveller”) from Parichay (1972) was composed by him, when he was at a hotel after the separation.

Burman married Asha Bhosle in 1980. Together, they recorded many hit songs and also staged many live performances. However, towards the end of his life, they did not live together.

Burman had financial difficulties, particularly later in his life. His mother Meera died in 2007, thirteen years after his death. She had been suffering from Alzheimer’s even before her son’s death. Just before her death she had been moved to an old age home, and moved back to her son’s residence after the issue became a controversy.

Burman has been credited with revolutionizing Bollywood music. He incorporated a wide range of influences from several genres in his scores. Burman’s career coincided with the rise of Rajesh Khanna-starrer youth love stories. He made electronic rock popular in these popular love stories. He often mixed disco and rock elements with Bengali folk music. He also used jazz elements, which had been introduced to him by the studio pianist Kersi Lord.

According to Douglas Wolk, Burman “wrapped sugary string swoops around as many ideas as he could squeeze in at once”. Biswarup Sen describes his popular music as one featuring multicultural influences, and characterized by “frenetic pacing, youthful exuberance and upbeat rhythms”.

Burman was influenced by Western, Latin, Oriental and Arabic music, and incorporated elements from these in his own music.He also experimented with different musical sounds produced from methods such as rubbing sandpaper and knocking bamboo sticks together. He blew into beer bottles to produce the opening beats of “Mehbooba, Mehbooba”. Similarly, he used cups and saucers to create the tinkling sound for the song “Chura Liya Hai” from the film Yaadon Ki Baaraat (1973).

For Satte Pe Satta (1982), he made the singer Annette Pinto gargle to produce a background sound.He also rubbed a comb on a rough surface to produce a whooshing sound in the song “Meri Samne Wali Khidki Main” from the film Padosan (1968)

On multiple occasions, Burman experimented with recording the same song with different singers. For Kudrat (1981), he recorded the light version of the song “Hume tumse pyar kitna” in the voice of Kishore Kumar, while the classical version was recorded in the voice of Parveen Sultana.
