ASHA BHOSLE – “THE BEST OF ASHA BHOSLE
Simply put, approved Asha Bhosle is the queen goddess of Bollywood film music. It’s common practice in Indian films for the stars of the film to have “playback singers” actually sing the songs for them, which the stars then lip-synch to in the movies. Bhosle is one of the most widely-known and respected playback singers, having sung for literally almost 1,000 films. Check out her insanely varied and illustrious career highlights at her Wikipedia entry here.
