Indian Star Asha Puthli Stages U.S. Comeback
Published August 7, 2006

An Indian superstar who made her biggest splash in Europe in the 1970s with jazz, funk and soul records that forever changed the sound of dance music, Asha Puthli will be returning to the U.S. concert stage for the first time in 25 years to headline two New York shows.

Puthli will appear at Central Park Summerstage on Sunday, August 13 at 3:00 PM with special guests Guru (featuring Solar and DJ Doo Wop) and Dewey Redman. On Wednesday, September 13 at 9:30 PM, she will headline Joe's Pub at New York's Public Theater.

The shows will preview some of the new material likely to appear on Puthli's forthcoming as yet untitled jazz album, and audiences will also be treated to classic songs from her forthcoming greatest hits package Space Talk: The Best of Asha Puthli, The CBS Years.

Admission to the Central Park Summerstage show is free. Tickets to the Joe’s Pub show are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

Anticipating the shows, her albums’ releases soon and her new single Waiting for an Angel – recently released for global distribution by the Italian label Cinevox – leaves Puthli optimistic. "It's exciting to be finally getting all this recognition in the United States," she said. "I had a very difficult time being accepted as an Indian woman doing jazz, funk and R&B in the early 1970s...now India is finally on the cover of Time and Newsweek. Things are changing and I'm glad."
