'The soul has gone': Bollywood star Asha Bhosle on how the music has changed
Thanks For Rating
During a particularly rousing rendition of Dum Maro Dum , security guards cease trying to quell the rambunctious mass dancing. Bhosle, 85, controls this date of a global farewell tour with grace: she appears when she wants, occasionally ceding the stage to Sudesh Bhosle no relation and to her granddaughter Zaina. Like Asha, Sudesh is a renowned mimic and playback singer — an artist who records songs that actors mime — and runs through old movie numbers. It is Asha, after all , not Sudesh, that the crowd are here for. When she does sing, it is with a tight-knit band, some of whom have been with her for decades. This proves vital as, though she often displays virtuosic skill, her voice also repeatedly cracks from exhaustion. The band — a cosmopolitan blend of saxophone, trombone, dholak, tabla, trumpet, drums, guitars, keyboards and harmonium — cleverly mask this time and again.
