'Classic Bollywood Vol 1' includes the first six Construction Kits from Classic Bollywood. This library captures the 'TRUE' sound of Bollywood Movies and it was composed, recorded and produced by celebrated Bollywood Film Composer, Gaurav Dayal. This beautiful library was recorded on location in New Delhi, India, home of the Bollywood Film industry, by celebrated soundtrack composer, Gaurav Dayal. 'Classic Bollywood' includes extremely useful and magical music loops, percussion loops and vocal phrases for music producers around the world. All 100% royalty-free...
In addition to the percussion loops, this library features the exotic sounds of an Indian string orchestra (recorded live) along with lush melodic male/female solo vocals and chorus phrases. All vocals have been sung in native languages rather than just alaaps. These loops will work beautifully with any genre be it mainstream World, Pop, Hip Hop, House, Electronica, Orchestral or any other style.
While most other libraries have covered Classical Indian styles, many of these have been unusable due to the structure and abstract nature of Indian Classical Music. Bollywood music, on the other hand, has evolved over the years and has always incorporated and adapted styles from North Indian & Western Music.
Now, for the first time, we are able to bring you the glorious and TRUE sound of Indian cinema, from classic 1960s style soundtracks to contemporary Bollywood soundtracks, featuring a mix of Indian melodies & Western arrangements. All composed, produced and recorded by one of the greatest composers Bollywood has ever known. We are extremely proud and honoured to welcome Guarav Dayal to the Producer Loops label. We are very happy our customers can now get their hands on 100% "Authentic" Bollywood Soundtrack Loops for their music productions.
