Ilaiyaraaja Solla Solla Volume 1 on Limited Edition Import LP
The Electronic Pop Sounds of Kollywood 1977-1983!
Ilaiyaraaja, Ilayaraja, Ilayaraaja, Isaignani, The Maestro. The undeniable prince of Kollywood cinema, India's second largest film industry, Ilaiyaraaja is more than equal to his forward thinking contemporaries in Bollywood and Lollywood in both productivity and experimentation. However, once you have exhausted all possible leads using his various names (and the numerous misspellings) you're faced with the unenviable task of sifting through a 34-year career spanning more than 900 film scores in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada in order to unearth some the heaviest dancefloor friendly electronic pop to ever emerge from Southern India. Impossible to pigeonhole and characterized by his own indefinable style the man is a genre in his own right. Fortunately Finders Keepers has done the sifting for all of us and presents Solla Solla Volume 1!
