520 _aThis work brings to light the previously uncharted history of female playback singers in the South-Indian (Telugu) film industry between 1945 and 1955. Playback singers such as R. Balasaraswati Devi, K. Jamuna Rani, Jikki Krishnaveni, P. Leela, and the singing actress P. Bhanumati's contribution to playback singing have been studied in order to arrive at a more cohesive history of Indian cinema.
