Telugu is one of the many languages spoken in India and is ranked fourth as the most used one in the whole of India. It is also spoken by many throughout the neighboring countries and throughout the world. With the Telugu language, the rich Telugu culture has also spread all across the country.
One of the most influential things about Telugu’s culture is its music and films. While Telugu’s music is mostly famous because of its close relationship with the film industry, records of the music have been found even since 300 BC. For more than 2000 years, the music has been advancing and has reached a level where it’s being spread all over the world.
Since the 1930s, India has had a great breakthrough with playback singing in its movies. By playback singing, we mean pre-recorded songs or lyrics by a singer and then the same song is performed through lipsync by an actor or actress. In the 20th and 21st century, Telugu music has managed to become very popular, influencing thousands of music artists who speak Telugu to start playback singing for movies.
If you are interested in playback singing and the Telugu language, here are some of the most popular songs in movies.
