Madan Mohan classics that inspired new age musicians

MUMBAI: The yesteryear melodies of ‘Naino Mein Badra Chhaye’ and ‘Mera Saaya’ created by legendary composer, Madan Mohan, have found a place in Indian film music history. Through the use of Indian Classical Music, he created an enormous impact on the current music industry. Even today, Mohan’s songs not only listened to, but also remixed and recreated by other musicians.
