2016 – Best of Telugu Film Music

Songs

Lots of melodies to choose from this year. Less heavy instrumentation, likely due to the relative absence of Ilayaraja, M. M. Keeravani, and Mani Sharma from the scene in 2016. The movies with star power inevitably had recycled mass songs, and it was the smaller films where the actual gems resided.
