Asha Bhosle Says Bollywood Music Lacks Soul
Acclaimed playback singer Asha Bhosle is not interested to make any more albums for film songs. According to her Bollywood music has lost its soul.
Asha Bhonsle said, “Film songs do not make sense anymore because the television channels in the country do not want to show anything else barring Bollywood music. I want to make meaningful Indian music.”
The veteran singer said, “Playback singing in Bollywood is not the same anymore. Music has changed over the years. The technology is very modern and sophisticated, but it has taken out the jaan (life) and atma (soul) out of music. There is no spirit in Bollywood music anymore and it is this rooh (spirit) I am seeking in music now.”
Bhosle was in the capital to attend the concert 'A Life in Melody - A 100-minute tribute to Ustad Vilayat Khan' .The concert was organised by Seagrams 100 Pipers Pure Music at the FICCI auditorium.
