Assistant professor of ethnomusicology will be presenting on Bollywood vocalities 

Anaar Desai-Stephens, assistant professor of ethnomusicology at the Eastman School of Music, will be presenting on music from Bollywood films in her talk, “In Whose Voice? The Stakes of Bollywood Vocalities in Aspirational India.” The presentation will take place at 5 p.m. April 26 in the Iger Lecture Hall in the Whalen Center for Music. This talk examines the tensions over the vocal styles heard in Bollywood today and their implications for upcoming singers. While older producers of Bollywood songs ask the singer to emulate iconic singers of the past, many younger producers of Hindi film music are increasingly placing a premium on “new voices,” marked by distinct vocal timbres and the ability to “sing in your own voice.” Young singers attempting careers in the Bollywood music industry must negotiate competing injunctions to “sound like the original” and “sound like yourself.”
