Asha Bhosle
Love Supreme
Times Square 9050

By Matt Cibula

Published March 16, 2007

From: India

If you’ve ever seen an Indian movie, you’ll probably recognize Asha Bhosle’s timeless, nimble voice. She and her sister, Lata Mangeshkar, have provided the female vocals on a mind-boggling number of Bollywood hits; Lata has retired, but Asha just keeps rolling on. (Yes, trainspotters, she’s the one Cornershop is singing about in “Brimful Of Asha.”) This album presents eight ghazals, or lover’s dialogues, set in a bunch of different styles. While the melodies are all still rooted firmly in Indian classical music, the backing tracks range from the disco-funk of “Aawargi” to the ambient blues of “Mujhe Tum Nazar Se.” Throughout it all, Bhosle is in perfect form—her voice is just as supple and as sexy now, after 12,000 recorded songs, as it was back in the days of “Eena Meena Deeka.” Bonus for Bollywood newbies: an extra disc featuring eight of the greatest duets from her career!
