Qurbani Kalyanji Anandji Polydor India Premium 2392 195 Ste, 1979
Qurbani album cover

Qurbani was the Bollywood equivalent of Shaft, a lavish thriller shot in London that featured some of the biggest names in Indian cinema of the late 70s. The music is in keeping with the action genre of the movie, and mixes traditional elements and instrumentation of Indian music with a heavy dose of late 70s funk. One of the trademarks of the Kalyanji Anandji composing team (who were brothers) was use of contemporary foreign influences mingled with classical Indian music. They succeed in a big way with this score, as it's powerful, funky, interesting and fun. Huge drums sit alongside tabla, wah guitar with sitar and flute. There's a great theme with a good open break intro, a good funky number in vocal and instrumental versions, and a fine almost-electro piece at the end. Recommended.

Overall Rating: 4
