Basu Chakraborty and Manohari Singh were a music director duo in the Hindi film industry in the 1970s and 80s. Basu was a violinist and Manohari, a saxophonist.

As contemporaries, they began their career playing for HMV in Calcutta. They moved to Bombay on the insistence of music director Salil Chowdhury in 1957-58. In Bollywood, they began their career under the legendary S.D. Burman and later became assistants to his son, R.D. Burman.

Basu-Manohari as a duo gave music to three Hindi films "Sabse Bada Rupaiya" (1976), "Kanhaiya" (1980) and "Chatpati" (1983). Some of their popular songs include "Waada Karo Jaanam" and "Sabse Bada Rupaiya" ("Sabse Bada Rupaiya", 1976) and "Aa Humsafar" ("Chatpati", 1983).

The duo fell apart when Basu decided to leave R.D. Burman's team and Manohari did not follow.
