Music plays a major role in Tamil culture. Tamil Nadu is a region in India known for the very appealing music and dance. Their history goes back thousands of years and the music tells stories about the region’s rich culture and traditions. Music is performed and listened to with great admiration not only in Tamil Nadu, but throughout the world. The music often has an uplifting nature.
Even though the majority of Tamil music is now made for the music industry, their folk music still has a huge part in the hearts of people in India, especially in the rural areas. Even some modern artists are working on making folk music popular again.
However, film music is currently the dominant genre.
There are a lot of talented composers in Tamil with Ilaiyaraaja and A.R. Rahman being the two most popular ones. Film music is performed and recorded by singers while actors lip-sync it in front of the camera. The music is energetic, interesting, captivating, and conveys emotions perfectly.
