Most Indian films are like musicals, but few Indian actors sing themselves. Instead,
playback singers lend their voices to actors in movies. Vasundhara Das has worked extensively as a playback singer in the mainstream Indian film industry, Bollywood, as well as in the thriving regional language film industry in southern India. Vasundhara has worked with several notable Indian composers – among others,
Anu Mallik, Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy, Shekar and Vishal, and Ranjit Barot.
Being a singer / songwriter, and having worked as a singer in the mainstream music
industry in India, Vasundhara has also worked as a film music composer or music director, as it is popularly called in India, with the Kannada film, ‘Hege Alisali Ninna Chitravaa’. Vasundhara is a singer-songwriter, and has a strong standing in the independent contemporary music scene in Bengaluru with successful creative collaborations like the Shah Hussain Project. She is the Co-Founder of Community DrumJam Foundation.
