This chapter examines the social identities of the musicians in the film industry in Mumbai, India and the pathways by which they came to be part of this musical-professional group. It analyzes the sources, natures, and processes of musical training of those who joined the film-music industry. It suggests that the backgrounds of musicians who joined the film sector reflect the film industry's place within the broader national context and the different representations of cultural identity in the industry reflect the variability of representation in the two different levels of music production in Mumbai.

Keywords:   musicians, film industry, Mumbai, India, cultural identity, film-music industry, music production
