Special Doordarshan series on centenary of recorded music

To celebrate the 100 years of recorded music in India, Doordarshan would be producing a commemorative series entitled “ A Century of Recorded Music – A Retrospective “.

This series will be a tribute to all the great artistes who have contributed to the recording industry. The series will encompass all genres of Indian music, like film, classical, folk music and will be a veritable feast for music lovers.

The research on the subject is underway to ensure that no detail, however small is left out. All the national archives of music are being involved in the project. Prominent film and music personalities are also being involved, to ensure that this production, the first of its kind, will be a magnum opus. Plans are also on the anvil to release boxed sets of videos and DVD’s of this production, which is sure to become a collectors item.

Says director general of Doordarshan, Dr.S.Y.Quraishi “it is a matter of great national pride and honour that the first song was recorded in India on 11th November 1902 in Calcutta by the Gramaphone and Typewriter Ltd, and it was sung by Miss Gauhar Jaan, the most celebrated singer of her time. We appeal to every one who feels that they may have something of value to contribute to this labour of love, to come forward and contact us through our website ddindia.com”.

The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting has decided to celebrate the centenary year of recorded music in India between November 11, 2002 and November 10, 2003. Several events are in store for the music lovers and the year long celebrations will culminate in an awards ceremony to honour the legends of the music industry that has revolutionized the meaning of entertainment by creating a unique bond between man and music.
