Rahul Dev Burman, the Indian music composer, was born on June 27, 1939 in Kolkatta to music director S.D. Burman and Meera Burman, and moved to Mumbai as a child with his family in 1944. He is popularly known as Pancham or Panchamda. The story goes that actor Ashok Kumar named him Pancham because as a child R.D. Burman cried at the fifth note, "Pa" or "Pancham", of the musical scale!

S.D. Burman sent Pancham to Kolkata to do his schooling and it is here that Pancham spent his formative years. Seeing his disinterest in academics, his father enrolled him in music classes. Pancham learned to play the tabla from Brajen Biswas and sarod from Ali Akbar Khan. It is through these classes that Pancham got his grounding in classical music.
