Has Bollywood Destroyed Indian Music ?
The Indian Music Culture is perhaps the most diverse, evolved and has existed through hundreds of years. Each region in the country has a rich tradition of folk music which is at the heart of the evolution of Indian Classical music and has further spawned multiple genres. Indian Music used to flourish as it was supported by patronage from Royalty and the artist was free to explore his talent and creativity. Today , our incredibly talented artists are giving up their profession or are looking for a "break in Bollywood". This over Bollywoodisation of our musical culture has resulted in audiences dwindling for other forms of music. It needs to be rescued.
