EDITORS’ NOTES

For the soundtrack for Mahanati—a film about the life of South Indian screen legend Savitri— Mickey J Meyer updates sounds from the industry's celebrated past for a modern audience. There’s the sampled intro of “Mooga Manasulu”, followed by its huge brass fanfare and a mellifluous duet between Anurag Kulkarni and Shreya Ghosal. “Aagipo Baalyama” offers traditional instruments and a swinging vocal performance from Ramya Behara, while the title track blends sharp keyboard arpeggios with modern, bass-rattling percussion.
