ApnaRahul Dev Burman  ~  “Apna Desh”
(Blog: Music From the Third Floor)
From the soundtrack: Duniya Mein Logon Ko (mp3) by Asha Bhosle & Pancham

Hooray for Bollywood
R.D. Burman composed the music for Apna Desh along with eighteen other flicks in 1972. On occasion, Burman would step out of the engineer’s booth and perform under the pseudonym Pancham—especially with his muse, Asha Bhosle, whom he married in 1980. The tandem’s all-time-great collaboration “Duniya Mein Logon Ko,” was covered by Sun City Girls—under the title “Apna Desh”—in 1994. One imagines it was a loving tribute to Burman, who had died in January of that year. Have a listen: Apna Desh (mp3)
