Music Directors From Other States Who Composed Music For Kannada Movies

Music is an integral part of the film and it has the ability to lift the film and also degrade the film, so the part of the music director also plays an important role in making of the film. I had heard one of the directors from the industry say that ‘A director gives life to a story and a music directors adds soul to it’- how true isn’t it? We have a lot of very talented music directors in our industry and we have also had a few music directors from other states who have composed music for Kannada films, here are a few of those who have composed music for Kannada films being from other states.
