Indian music makes Oscar shortlist

By | Published on Friday 23 January 2009

Contemporary Indian music accounts for several nominations at this year’s Oscars, because of the success of new Danny-Boyle-directed movie ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. There’s also a nod for CMU favourite MIA – which is kinda cool.

Of the three tracks nominated in the Music (Song) category, two are from the film – ‘O Saya’ and ‘Jai Ho’ – both by composer AR Rahman, and the former a collaboration with MIA.

Rahman’s score also gets a nod in the Music (Score) category.
