Veteran singer Asha Bhosle, who has sung duets with Boy George, Robbie Williams and Australian cricketer Brett Lee, is in talks with iconic South American rock guitarist Carlos Santana for a possible duet. “We are in talks with Santana. I have always wanted to sing with an artiste like him. It will be something new and different. I have experimented with my music a lot and this is going to be a new challenge,” Asha told PTI.
In her six decade-long career, Asha has mastered almost all genres in music, be it pop, ghazal, classical, quawwali or Rabindra Sangeet. The singer, who turned 77 this week, has been a long-time fan of the Grammy-award-winning singer. Her late husband and famous musician R D Burman introduced Asha to Santana’s music.
