Why film music pt2 – Prog Raja/Funk Raja

This is part 2 of my video series ‘Why film music’, a spin off of my book Raga 2 Rock.

You can check out part 1 here.

In part 2, I have compiled a bunch of Ilayaraja parts that are influenced by prog rock, funk, jazz-fusion. I preface this by saying that this aspect of his music is what made it easier for me to eventually get into progressive rock. Because it created a sense of familiarity I wouldn’t have expected from my vantage point as a mostly Indian music-listening person.
