Asha Bhosle’s high-pitched soprano has been heard on more than 11,000 songs, most of them recorded for and lip synched by Bollywood actresses, since her career began seven decades ago. Now 82, Bhosle’s success is due to more than just hitting the top notes of scales in those genres. She’s equally adept at altering her cadence, and she sounds comfortable singing in multiple languages over strings and disco beats, psychedelic South Asian guitar grooves, and slow-tempo traditional acoustic arrangements. Here she will be backed by the Wolf Trap Orchestra who will work to convey her broad musical spectrum while she emotes.
