Jhumka Gira Re

Back with a song after a long break.
Since long I've been wanting to step aside from melodies for a change and try something different.So here's a song that belongs to what I call 'The Asha Genre'.
Whatever kind of song Ashaji sings, it has such a distinctive feel to it that none other than her can bring in, and none other can even reproduce! Notwithstanding the fact that she is one of those rare singers who can sing completely effortlessly just any kind of song and so amazingly create that right kind of mood, we are all particularly fond of her for a certain class of songs that she has sung and continues to sing-I seem to be unable to classify them as any single kind-well yes, I'm talking of her naughty songs, her peppy songs, her 'drunken' songs...you get the idea I guess... :) What's common to them all is the unmistakable 'Asha-ness' :) Those sudden lightning speed twists in her voice, the child-like vigour, the intermittent laughter, the sighing, the sensuous feel...she is just inimitable!
And today, at 74 she's still kicking!!!

Here's my attempt of one of her hits.

Hey Sindhuja, very good job. Not just a passing comment, but the one thing I like about your renditions is you have YOUR signature on all of it. See this for example, an Asha song, but it has your style of singing. I think this originality is something to be really appreciated.

Looking forward to hear more from you.
