: I'm coming to this discussion a few days late, but it's great to
see
: folks mentioning the names of Lata and Asha. These two ruled
India's
: film music industry for decades and have only recently been
: supplanted by younger voices. There are some GREAT multi-CD
: collections with Lata and people like Kishore Kumar that, when they
: can be found stateside, are often very reasonably priced. Asha is
: still reinventing herself and has done some world music recently.
It
: seems silly to say it, but I feel that Henna always comes out
better
: when Lata or Asha are singing.
:
: If you find that you like these two great singers and their songs,
: don't forget to check out other filmi music by Kavita Krisnamurthy
: (that's from memory, I may have misspelled it) and of course Alka
: Yagnik. Along with the male singer Udit Narayan, Alka is ruling the
: roost of Hindi films these days. If you watched Moulin Rouge,
you've
: heard Alka and Udit singing. They also sang some of the songs on
last
: year's big crossover hit "Lagaan".
:
: Trivia: Lagaan truly represented the best that Mumbai's playback
: singers have to offer. In addition to Alka and Udit's work on
Lagaan,
: Lata sang on O Paalanhare, proving that she was still more than
: relevant, and Asha sang on Radha Kaise Na Jele.

: : For something calmer, Ravi Shankar is excellent and his daughter
: Anoushka
: : is turning out to be quite a protege. Sisters Lata Mangeshkar and
: : Asha Bhosle both have outstanding music behind them and their
: vocals
: : are just amazing. (If you can find the song Oh Haseena, both
: : tradtional version and remix are Grrrreat!) For a very reggae
: : influenced Indian sound, check out Apache Indian, Asha sings on a
: lot
: : of his music.
: :
: : : Forgive me for the OT'ness of this, but I've heard several
folks
: : : discuss this before, and I'd thought perhaps I could get some
: wise
: : : guidance.
: : :
: : : I'm interested in getting a few heads' up about who might be
some
: : : good Indian musical artists to listen to. I don't know any
: popular
: : : names or songs - I've heard a few things I've liked, but have
no
: : clue
: : : as to who or what they might be. I tend to like techno-beat
: : stuff.
: : : Anyone got any ideas?
: : :
: : : As always, very much appreciated in advance!

: : : Jenna
: : : who hennaed her hand tonight
: : : 'cuz she's got a new job and it's cool at last to do it >8-D
