Together they gave Bollywood music a new direction and it will be an opportunity of a lifetime to be there when Asha Bhosle remembers RD Burman through a string of songs at her upcoming concert, ‘Rahul aar Aami’ at Netaji Indoor Stadium, on January 25. Yes, Amaron in association with 91.9 FM Friends presents Asha Bhosle in concert and the spotlight comes on at 6pm.
This is the same venue where Pancham (as RD was popularly called) gave his last live performance in Calcutta (1992). It was Amit Kumar’s “Dui Kishore” concert and he performed (with the singer) Yeh dosti hum nahin todenge (Sholay).
At 79, Asha will woo three (if not four!) generations with songs scored by her music composer-husband RD Burman. The first time she recorded for the legendary composer in Hindi was Mar dalega dard-e-jigar (Pati Patni) and their last venture was the Bengali Puja album Ga Pa Ga Re Sa (1990).
The musical tribute with the queen of melody also celebrates 100 years of Indian cinema.
