DISTRIBUTION IS NEEDED FOR GLOBAL SUCCESS: AR RAHMAN
Grammy Awards winning super music producer and composer
A.R. Rahman is speaking out on the importance of having global distributions for Indian artists abroad.
He says a artist can sing an English song, but it will “die its own death” if not distributed well.
“Till we have distribution of Indian artistes abroad, it’s (English music scenario for Indian artistes is) useless. I mean you can just do an English song and it will die its own death. It is unfortunate, where every kid wants to do an English song, but then where are you going to go till you have distribution,” Rahman said in a statement.
Rahman, won the Oscar for Best Original Score and Best Original Song for Danny Boyle’s 2008 film “Slumdog Millionaire." Rahman got his start composing scores for documentaries and TV shows before he got his first movie break with 1992 release “Roja”. Since then, he has composed soul-rendering music in films like “Rangeela”, “Taal”, “Dil Se”, “Jodhaa Akbar”, “Swades”, “Rang De Basanti”, “Rockstar”, “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” and “Raanjhanaa”.
He also shared a list of his favourites. He said: “My favourite is Adele of course and Zayn (Malik). I listen to everything, I listen to Coldplay too sometimes.”
