Asha Bhosle Songs

January 1998

------------------------------------------------------------
      Asha and 105 female singers of Hindi movie songs
------------------------------------------------------------
Dear fellow music lovers:
     Some of you may remember the statistical info  I posted
on Lata  some time ago. With this post, I begin similar info
on Asha. It comes from the book on Asha, called "svaraashaa"
published by  Vishwas Nerurkar  of Bombay,  who published  a
similar book on Lata earlier.
     The following includes songs from Hindi-Urdu films only
and is  up to 1994. The main part of the list is arranged as
follows: the  name of  the female  singer, total  number  of
songs sung  with Asha,  total number  of movies  with  Asha,
duets in  which   Asha and   the  named  singer sang  alone,
others in  which another   singer/s   male   and/or   female
participated.  As usual, transliteration  scheme of  Avinash
Chopde  has  been used.
     As   usual, the ultimate source of most of this info is
the 5-volume  Hindi Film  Giit  Kosh  by  Har  Mandir  Singh
Hamaraaz and Bishwa Nath Chatterjee.

not have  been possible  without the  constant  support  and
encouragement of my wife, Harmesh Kaur.

Enjoy!
