Asha Bhosle, happy birthday! The queen of Indipop turns 78
When you look back at those magical songs sung by Asha Bhosle, the one thing that gets crystal clear is that this legend is inimitable. There can’t be another Asha. Her voice is not just full of melody, there’s also a certain youthful enthusiasm with which she sings.
