Asha Bhosle: Excited To Record Live After A Gap Of 30 YearsNovember 27th, 2010 - 7:41 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
Veteran singer Asha Bhosle went through an age-old experience after about 30 years and she was visibly very excited about it. Yes, she got to record live for an album, which is something not executed at all in recent times. She has recorded an album titled “Naina Lagai Ke” with singer-sitarist Shujaat Khan, where all the songs are traditional and classical-based.
Speaking on her new album, she said that if a song is genuinely melodious it does not need the help of an orchestra. She also commented on the present song recording system. According to her, today’s artists do not have to sing the songs at one go instead they can record it in parts. But earlier in case of live recordings singers had to sing the entire song together and Asha loves it that way.
She further added that she had a fantastic time recording it as “there was no interruption”. She also said that she felt nice recording with traditional instruments as “all tunes and rhythms were in sync” and improvisations could be done later. No rehearsals were done before recording.
77-year-old Asha went out the memory lane when she was asked about her previous live recording. It was with Ghulam Ali, she said.
“Naina Lagai Ke” is being produced by SaReGaMaPa where she is working with a classical musician after a long time of 14 years.
