As of this writing, there are more than 100,000 producers in India, and a whopping 85% of them are women.
The vast majority of them, however, have no more than one child.
Many of them also don’t produce their music through traditional channels, and instead rely on a number of digital platforms.
We talked to the creators of music in India to find out which of them is making the most of the current market opportunities, and whether the country’s nascent tech ecosystem will have a major impact on the industry.

Emilia has been one of the most active producers in her country, producing tracks on top labels like Arjuna Records and Deez Nuts Records, as well as her own label, Gita Records.
Her most recent release is a compilation of songs from her album, The Girl Who Wrote The Book.
She is also the producer behind some of the tracks on some of India’s biggest artists.
“I’ve been a producer for more than 10 years, so I have been able to experience the evolution of the industry and to grow,” she said.
“Now I feel like I’m the one making the songs.
It is very easy for me to do that now.”
Pranav’s career began in 2002, when he formed a new label called Bajirao Mastani.
The band, which was also called the Bajiri, went on to record two albums, including 2013’s ‘Bajiroumee’ which has topped the music charts.
It was also the band’s debut album.
His current project, which is called Pannik, is one of a number which has been made under his name.
“It’s not my usual band, but I am happy to see the growth of this genre.
The genre has been growing from very little to being very big,” Pranava said.
Bajrao Mastani is not the only label to have been established under his own name.
Manish has also produced tracks for a number the big labels, including Arjona Records and deez Nubs.
“All of the labels have been producing with me.
It’s a lot easier to get started with these labels.
They are more accepting of producers like me,” he said.
Preeti started his career in 2011, when his debut album ‘Baba Ghandi’ won the award for best music.
The songs on his debut, ‘Bubba Bamba’, were nominated for a Best Music Album award at the 2013 Awards for Music.
“BabaGhandi was very much about a woman’s story.
It also had a powerful message of empowerment,” Preetiya said.
He was also a co-founder of a local music club called Nandan, which has recorded some of his songs.
“When I was young, I was in a band called The Ramjas.
It helped me to understand that if I wanted to get into music, I had to write a song and share it with the world.
That’s why I wanted my songs to be a part of the world’s music,” he added.

“I love music, especially when I listen to it over and over again.
I like to be creative with it.
I don’t really want to be known as a producer,” he told IndiaSpend.
“Music is my passion.
If I’m not doing it, I am not enjoying it.
So I am a big fan of the art of music.
It has always been a part in my life.
I would like to share that with the community.”
Manish has been making tracks for the last five years, with his first release being ‘Sadhak, Kaa Hata’.
He is also making music for a small label called Ghatan.
“The more I hear about music, the more I like it.
The more I listen, the happier I am,” he explained.
“But I also have some big goals.
I want to produce more music, which will be bigger and more influential.
So the longer I am making music, hopefully it will be more influential.”
