Lata Mangeshkar Remembered: Sangeetmay Baithak Honours Legacy

As the world commemorates the second anniversary of the passing of the beloved singer Lata Mangeshkar, affectionately known as the ‘Nightingale of India,’ on February 6th, the Indian Singers and Musicians Rights Association (ISAMRA) has orchestrated a special event titled Sangeetmay Baithak to honour her enduring legacy and offer heartfelt homage.

Following her demise in 2022, Lata Mangeshkar left behind a remarkable legacy crafted through a career spanning over 30,000 songs across various Indian languages. India TV reports that today, several renowned artists from the music industry, including Alka Yagnik, Udit Narayan, Kunal Ganjawala, Suresh Wadkar, Shaan, Sudesh Bhosle, Shabbir Kumar, Nitin Mukesh, Lalit Pandit, Shailendra Singh, Sanjay Tandon, Annu Malik, Richa Sharma, Madhushree, Jaspinder Narula, Sadhna Sargam, and others, will gather to revisit her iconic melodies. Additionally, her sisters Asha Bhonsle and Usha Mangeshkar will grace the event, alongside esteemed lyricists such as Javed Akhtar and composers including Vishal Bharadwaj and Himesh Reshammiya.

Sanjay Tandon, the CEO of ISAMRA, expressed, “ISAMRA functions as a close-knit family of singers and musicians. It’s crucial for this family to come together periodically and understand one another. I’m delighted that the longstanding issue of royalties, originally raised by Lata Mangeshkar in the 1960s, has now found resolution under ISAMRA. As a united family, we will gather to honour the late Lata Mangeshkar, paying our heartfelt respects and commemorating her immense contributions.”

Born in 1929 to Marathi classical singer and actor Pandit Deenanath Mangeshkar and his Gujarati wife Shevanti in Indore, Lata Mangeshkar harboured dreams of becoming a singer from a young age. Despite her initial foray into acting as a child artist following her father’s demise, she eventually transitioned to singing. Her breakthrough moment arrived with the song “Aayega Aanewala” from the film “Mahal” in 1949. With a career spanning several decades, Lata’s ethereal voice graced thousands of songs across multiple languages, leaving an indelible mark on Indian cinema and music. Her legacy transcends generations, inspiring countless aspiring singers and touching the hearts of millions worldwide. Lata Mangeshkar’s contributions to music will forever be cherished, ensuring that her divine voice continues to resonate for generations to come.
