M.S. Baburaj

Mohammad Sabir “Baburaj” (also known as M. S. Baburaj, Malayam was a Malayalam music composer. He is often credited for the renaissance of Malayalam film music.
His early childhood was spent in destitution and poverty. His father, who was a Hindustani musician from Bengal who frequently held concerts in Kerala, deserted his Malayali mother when he was very young, and returned to his native Kolkata. Baburaj thus became a semi-orphan, often singing songs in trains to make a living. But as luck would have it, a policeman from his native town of Kozhikode, noticing the boy’s vocal talents, decided to adopt him. Baburaj thus found an avenue where his talents could blossom.
