Songs with Amazing Female Solo Vocals

Post by snowdogg » Thu Nov 29, 2012 1:46 am

greetings!
i am completely stunned by the vocal performance in Sheila Chandra - Nana (The Dreaming)...amazing!

i understand its her rendition of a previous work? is it a defined category of Indian singing? how do i find more stuff like that?

any recommendations for anything similar would be great (preferably just vocals or very little instrumentation), cheers!

peace

If you like Sheila Chandra you may also like Viraj Amar (altough I believe this style is more classical than the one you posted).

e.g. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3583YS03hZI

I remember as a youngster growing up in the UK S.Chandra reached number 1 in the pop charts and appeared on top of the pops with the track Ever so lonely (based on the classical raag Bageshri I believe).

cheers for the reply!

i like the suggestion that track is amazing!

hehe i think i knew i was referencing a very "commercial" artist, maby even a "popstar", sorry i dont know better :)
cant deny that her voice is great though!

but Viraj Amar - Kirwani Raag is right on track! any more?:)

This is fusion but I think very true to the wonderful version by Ashwini Bhide
