The world of Non-film music of Geeta Dutt nee Roy

November 23rd, 2013

Geeta Dutt

When one thinks about non-film music creations of the artists from the mainstream film playback singers, the prominent names that come to one’s mind are the great K L Saighal, Talat Mahmood, Manna Dey, Lata Mangeshkar etc. Some popular genres which have been sung by these singers are Ghazals and bhajans (devotional songs). In some instances, a singer began taking more non-film assignments when the film song assignments were reduced (mostly due to non-musical reasons), a notable example is Suman Kalyanpur who sang a good number of soulful songs (Bhaavgeet in Marathi) or Sulochana Kadam turning to Marathi film and non-film songs as Sulochana Chavan or Manna Dey singing a good number of non-film songs in the 70s.
