MELODY AND MUSIC

A singer whose career in the Bollywood industry has been lasting for the past three decades, alka Yagnik is one of the best singers we could have ever asked for. Her pitch range is appreciated by many music directors and ofcourse her pitch adds to the ‘feel’ of the song most of the time. Her song from the movie Laawaris in the year 1981 ‘Mere Aangan Mein’ set the right kind of path for her for a brilliant music journey.
