You won’t hear Vijaya Anand sing on this record. Nor will you hear him play any of the instruments. He is the invisible presence behind each of these songs. He’s the Musical Director, here to dream up sequences and carefully produce sophisticated South Indian pop perfection.
Anand was part of the first wave to use electronic instruments in Indian film scores. Almost all sung in glorious Telugu. Thirty years after its original release, Asia Classics 1: The South Indian Film Music of Vijaya Anand – Dance Raja Dance is available on vinyl for the first time.
