RD Burman was an iconic Indian film music composer and singer. This talented musician was the son of a famous music director SD Burman. Music director is how music composers are described in the Indian film industry.

At one point in the early 1970s,father and son produced some of the best songs in Hindi (Bollywood) film industry. RD was & continues to be an inspiration for lot of the younger musicians in Bollywood.

RD worked mainly in Bollywood, but composed music for other regional films in India. RD brought world music influences, especially Latin sounds into Bollywood music. Along with his wife, the versatile singer Asha Bhosle,he introduced new sounds and new ways of creating music into the Indian film industry.
