S.D. Burman awardees

The S.D. Burman International Award for Creative Music and Sound was constituted in 2010 to honour the versatile and prolific musical talent in Indian Cinema. The award is named after the legendary Indian music composer who embodied different sounds of India in his compositions. It is also a unique initiative that acknowledges the integral place of music in our cinema and our culture.

The awardees have been from diverse musical streams – from exponents of classical music to music composers in popular films to singers. It has been a valuable addition to PIFF. The interactions with the awardees give an insight into a unique facet of Indian cinema to PIFF delegates. They bring out the beauty of poetry and music and how it gels with the narrative of an Indian film.
