In early years of bollywood the music was mainly classical and folk. Carnatic music has maintained the pure form of classical based on ragas and Taal. Then the focus shifted from classical to semi classical songs and now people prefer fast tracks, item numbers, remixes etc, the main reason for this change is the change in traditions and development of new forms of music and instruments. Earlier we had limited forms of music but the case is all together different today. The early film songs were extremely simple in terms of music, lyrics and orchestration. Often, just a harmonium and a tabla would accompany the actors and the lyrics too were almost like nursery rhymes. . Soon however more and more instruments began being used in film songs, not only tabla and harmonium but also western instruments like guitar; piaono, drums etc. Music has evolved to a large extend. Most of the prominent singers of today are Sunidhi chauhan, Atif aslam, Shreya ghoshal and then the famous trio of the music industry Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy among others.
