Happy Birthday Asha-ji !

Her sister, Lata Mangeshkar is the more popular singer and known as the “Nightingale of India” but Asha-ji is my personal favorite. In fact, she is the one singer that I can buy an album unheard and know that I cannot go wrong.

Her trademark songs are youthful and exuberant with a touch of naughtiness, pop. She may be in old in age but she continues to dazzle in new types of music. In fact, she has recently released a new Ganesh rap album called Mangalmurti Ganesh.

I have almost all her CDs and have had the pleasure of attending two of her concerts . She seems to be a humble, down-to-earth person who enjoys life.

For me, she is a true cultural ambassador winning people’s hearts all over the world with her melodious voice.

  1. Asha Bhosale is also my favourite singer…When her sister’s voice is getting harsh as age progresses, she has come out as rocking voice of india. Even if I admire Lata for her contribution in Indian music, I personally don’t like her as a person. In my mind it always strike that she had down played Asha. She always considered Asha as a rivial..
    But now see…Asha is more famious than Lata..Asha is a versatile singer who can sing bhajans as well as rock songs…not only in hindi but also in English..
    Now when I listen to Lata I can undoubtedly say she is old enough …but when I listen to Asha, her voice is as sweet and fresh as it was in ‘piya tu ab to aaja’
