So some of us here in South Florida are very excited that Asha Bhosle is coming to Ft. Lauderdale, about 45 minutes away from Miami, as part of her North America tour. I know folks in other major cities (e.g. Los Angeles, Toronto) who are going to her concert, and for once, those of us in Miami aren't missing out!
Bought our tickets to the Broward Performing Arts Center event on April 18. Can't wait. Wonder which songs she'll sing? And will she involve the audience ala her sister Lata Mangeshkar and ask them which song they want to hear?
She has sung way too many good songs for anyone to do justice to her art by merely picking a few tracks. Nevertheless, here are my top five Asha Bhosle tracks, in no specific order:
Raadha Kaise Na Jale (Lagaan)
Kahin Aag Lage (Taal)
Rangeela Re (Rangeela)
Dil Cheez Kya Hai (Umraao Jaan)
Parde Mein Rehne Do (Shikar)
Boy, am I excited or what? Oh, and if you want to buy tickets for this event, make sure you do so only from the syndicated outlet/box office at the Center. Post a comment to this post or e-mail me (view profile for my e-mail address) if you want the link.
Also, you can be rest assured that that event will be covered on my blog. Looking forward to it too! Until then, happy Sunday everyone!
