From old Bollywood music of the late 90s to the ones till now, I have seen a large change in the way how these songs and their music videos are made. Also with Indian DJs like Zaeden, Lost Stories etc performing outside India at events like Tomorrowland, the other music scene consisting of indie artists going out of their comfort zone and excelling in their own style is also growing. Here I list down some of the Indian Artists worth listening to.
