Asha & Friends

Besides recently releasing an album with a title that is the same as that of this blog entry and which includes duets that Asha Bhonsle has sung with the likes of Indian movie-star Sanjay Dutt and Australian cricketer Brett Lee, it seems that she is now preparing to record a song with British singing-star Robbie Williams (if a recent blog-post at World of Bhangra is to be believed).

After dominating the Bollywood playback scene, along with her siblings, for more than half a century, the lady's singing career is still going places and, at 73 years of age, she seems to have no retirement plans as of now.

To say the least, I am impressed!

Asha Bhonsle is a remarkable lady indeed. I won’t be surprised if she pulls it off with Williams.

Her WIDE range is something that will keep her up and running, for years to come and even after She Goes Away…

@Asma: OK, whatever you say!

Meanwhile, I wonder if you find the track more interesting because of Asha Bhonsle or Brett Lee. :D

@Ra: I agree!

…but why brett lee?! She has a remarkable career, she deserves to work with other great musicians and singers and not a cricketer. If that is the case, then reciprocally she ought to be at least the twelth man on the Australian cricket squad.

hehe…The album is meant to be an experiment wherein she has recorded duets with a number of people who are not professional singers.

The twelfth man idea is indeed very interesting!

Indeed Asha is a legend and in tune with all times. What a talent!
