Once I heard, “The surest way to make your dreams come true is to live them.” This is what exactly I did. I will always cherish my 20 years of musical journey. There are many musical memories in it.
I am happy to share that it is an unquestioned leading organisation. Swar Aalap is now a household name for the musician’s fraternity, with integrity and confidence.
So far, we have felicitated 50+ musicians for their priceless contribution to Indian film music.

In this journey of 20 years, our research helped to understand the need for industry and how musicians were involved in this evolution. In the year 2020, looking at the growing influence of the Internet, Swar Aalap launched a digital portal. It was for disseminating information about arts, music, and culture to connect the future generation with our glorious history of Indian music and musicians as well. Still, live events remain the key to highlighting the work of musicians. I would like to say a big thank you to my family and friends. I would also like to thank my colleagues from the bottom of my heart. They supported me tireless throughout this life.

Naatu Naatu 1Friends, stay tuned with the same thoughts and ideas, but let’s cherish one more feather in the cap of Indian musicians when RRR’s Naatu Naatu wins the Golden Globe. Hollywood’s award season got rolling with the 80th Golden Globes, presented at a Los Angeles ceremony with comedian Jerrod Carmichael as the host. The film RRR, directed by SS Rajamouli, won the Best Original Song award in the motion picture category for the song “Naatu Naatu.” Kala Bhairava and Rahul Sipligunj penned this Telugu song. It was composed by veteran music director MM Keeravaani. The main protagonists, actors N.T. Rama Rao Jr. and Ram Charan, performed in this fast-paced song, while Shriya Saran, Alia Bhatt, and Ajay Devgn played significant roles in the film.

The song “Naatu Naatu” from the movie RRR was competing against “Carolina.” This song is by Taylor Swift (Movie: Where the Crawdads Sing). “Naatu Naatu” was also competing against “Ciao Papa” by Alexandre Desplat, Roeban Katz, and Guillermo del Toro (Movie: Pinocchio). “Hold My Hand” by Lady Gaga, Blood Pop, and Benjamin Rice (Movie- Top Gun: Maverick) were also in the race. “Lift Me Up” by Tems, Rihanna, Ryan Coogler, and Ludwig Göransson (Movie: Black Panther: Wakanda Forever).

Earlier in 2009, singer-music director A.R. Rahman made history by being the first Indian to win a Golden Globe for the movie “Slumdog Millionaire.” Prior to that, in 1983, the movie “Gandhi” not only received nominations but also took home five Golden Globes. Other movies like “Apur Sansar” from 1961, “Salaam Bombay” from 1989, and “Monsoon Wedding” from 2002 also received Golden Globe nominations.
