    MUSE Playlist: Indian Soul Tunes

    As we enter summer, films are becoming a bigger part of many schedules. A country like India, in particular, has cinema which resonates with summer, otherwise known as “monsoon season” Indian cinema truly evokes feeling through its music. Indian cinema and music have long been culturally synonymous. Cinema culture itself in India is extremely rich, with there being film industries beyond just the known “Bollywood”,  in various languages such as Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam, Kannada, Punjabi, Bengali, Marathi, and so much more to explore. One of the greatest additions to this cinema culture across industries, is the music and background music, with some of the greatest music of the nation being seen in the playback songs and background tracks that are used to enrich the movies. 

    Below is a playlist, along with an exploration of how each of the songs add to the movies. You can also find the music on a playlist at: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0GRAFcBxFjdV9QqD1NT4En
