Asia Classics 1: The South Indian Film Music of Viajaya Anand: Dance Raja Dance
The car stopped and two casually clad gentlemen stepped out through each door. Vijaya Anand fit the picture of a young, successful South Indian music director perfectly. He was wearing faded blue jeans, a tastefully printed polyester shirt with the two top buttons undone. I could see the long gold chain with a capital “V” for a pendant. Anand has everything a young cinema music director could want — charm, imagination and involvement in his field to the core. He has been enchanting audiences with a unique blend of the world’s music since ’82.
