Singing legend Lata Mangeshkar has launched her own music label L.M. Music with an album of bhajans. Lata has sung along with younger sister Usha for the new album.
The two sisters have sang a number of hit songs in the 1950s and 1960s like "Apalam chaplam" ("Azad"), "Kis kaaran kamini sharmaye" ("Chandan Ka Palna)" and "Bahe jaiye na rani" ("Sabse Bada Rupaiya").
The new album has bhajans dedicated to Swami Samarth of Akkalkot.
"It is always a pleasure to sing with Usha. She's a fine singer in her own right. We've come together again because of the solemnity of the occasion, Swami Samarth is a much-revered saint from Akkalkot," said Lata.
The music of the album is composed by a young musician Mayuresh Pai. It was due to be launched Nov 18 in a lavish bash but had to be postponed due to Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray's death.
"Our release function had to be put off. 2012 was not a good year for me. We will have a lavish function in January 2013. But we had to release the Mahamantra album for Swami Samarth. It was a commitment. We had to deliver within a time frame," she said.
About the label LM Music, Lata shyly said, "It's a name suggested by everyone in the family. I went along with it. I've no interest in using my name for anything."
