At 84, singing legend Lata Mangeshkar has released her first Sufi songs album and has credited her nephew nephew Baijnath, who has composed the numbers and sung a duet in Ya Rabba with her, for trying out the genre.“If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have attempted the genre. But Baijnath is so shy… I had to virtually coax him into doing the album,” she said.
He has composed the numbers and sung a duet in the album with me. Like I said, I took the initiative for the album because I wanted Baijnatha’s efforts to be heard. In fact, the reason I launched my label LM Music was to be able to sing devotional music.
