Although this site devotes itself purely to the lyrics of Hindi/Urdu film and non-Film songs, the song in its entirety owes its genesis to the collective efforts of the singer, the composer and the lyricist, among several others. The individual lyrics pages attempt to give due credit to the singers, composers and lyricists involved, wherever such information is available.
Here, we present brief Biographical Sketches of
the Singers, Composers
and Lyricists who share the credits for
the songs included in the ISB. It must be pointed out that this section
does not currently include sketches for every single artiste represented
in ISB. Furthermore, while this section is classified by Singer, Composer
and Lyricist, there are several versatile geniuses who have had a hand
in more than one field with a fair measure of success. In such cases, the
artiste appears under the class for which (s)he is primarily known. Thus,
Mukesh appears under the list of singers although he does have credit for
composing music for a few songs. And then there are those like Hemant Kumar
who can be classified as singer and as composer with equal justification.
Or Pradeep who can be listed as lyricist and as singer with equal justification.
