The Bollywood music industry is more open to experimentation today, says industry stalwart Amit Trivedi.
“Ever since I started, Bollywood has gone through a lot of changes. Film producers now want to experiment with their movie’s music and that’s why you see many of them working with independent musicians. As a result of that, genres are getting mixed and Bollywood is expanding itself,” he says.
Recently, a few premium movies such as Dibakar Banerjee directed ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’ and Bejoy Nambiar directed ‘Wazir’ saw successful soundtracks released, featuring various independent artists from India. This is definitely a big opportunity for indie music in India, should the trend catch on.
“When they are doing their music outside films, they have only 5-10% visibility on social media, and when they do it for Bollywood, the visibility rises to 60-70%. The amount of exposure you get in India as a musician in Bollywood is so much better than what one gets independently,” Amit Trivedi adds.
