REMEMBERING PANCHAM DA

RD Burman (27 June 1939 – 04 Jan 1994), fondly known as Pancham da was a musical phenomenon who gave us some of the best songs we still listen to today, like the years gone by, were only yesterday. There is nothing that has not been said about this great music composer and singer. Born to the great composer and singer S.D. Burman, Pancham Da already had a benchmark when he entered the industry, but he created a different space for himself. He made many songs in English, Hindi, Bengali, Tamil and Telugu.

He has been credited with revolutionizing Bollywood music. He incorporated a wide range of influences from several genres in his scores. 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 Kersy Lord.

RD Burman was influenced by Western, Latin and Arabic music, and incorporated elements from these in his own music. He used Western dance music as a source of inspiration for his compositions. As was common in Bollywood, many of his songs featured the tunes of popular foreign songs. For example, Mehbooba Mehbooba from Sholay (1975) is inspired from the song Say You Love Me, traditional Cyprus song, arranged and sung by Demis Roussos.

With Asha Bhonsle (wife)

Pancham da often experimented with different musical sounds produced from methods such as rubbing sand paper 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 Churaliya Hai from the film Yaadon Ki Baaraat (1973). For Satte Pe Satta (1982), he made singer Annette Pinto gargle to produce a background sound! 

Several Bollywood movies made after RD Burman’s death contain his original songs or their remixed versions. Dil Vil Pyar Vyar (2002), which contains several re-arranged hit songs of Burman, was made as a tribute to him. Jhankaar Beats (2003), which catapulted the music director duo Vishal-Shekhar into the limelight, is also a tribute to him. In 2010, Brahmanand Singh released a 113-minute documentary titled Pancham Unmixed: Mujhe Chalte Jaana Hai, which received critical acclaim.

We have collated a few videos of the songs he made spanning his Bollywood career. Scroll all the way down to have a dekko at a few of his best creations.
