Many, many returns – Balu

spb-musical-journeyToday ( June 4, 1946 ) is the birthday of Sripathi Pandiradhyula Balasubramanyam, who carved out a niche for himself in the film industry for the last 50 years and entered the Guinness Book of world record for singing maximum number of sons. Balu filled up the void left by the legendary singer Ghantasala, who was a house-hold name. Singing at a high pitch was his speciality and Balu followed in his foot steps undoubtedly. For many music directors his song is an experiment. He sang almost every song under director K Vishwanath. He entered the industry with film Maryada Ramanna and sang 1000s of songs for all and sundry in 11 languages which is creditable. He also sang as per the context and suitable to the voice of the actor. He was popular among the Bollywood music directors also as they rejoiced his voice. In all he bagged 6 national awards and in Telugu 20 Nandi awards. He also did guest roles in many films.
