International » Indian Subcontinent Traditions » Indian Pop

India lays claim to the largest and most prolific film industry in the world, with these movies determining the pop music trends of any given moment in time. Songs are popularized in motion pictures by playback singers -- dubbing artists whose performances are broadcast back over loudspeakers on the movie set for actors to mime the lyrics and dance to the music.
