Lata Mangeshkar as young photos

Lata Mangeshkar is one of the most iconic artists India has ever seen. Regarded by many as the finest female playback singer of the Indian film industry, Lata was born on 28th September, 1929 to an orthodox Maharashtrian family. Music was ingrained in her from a very early age by her father Deenanath Mangeshkar, who was a very famous classical singer. Lata’s mother Shudhamati was a housewife, while her four siblings- Hridaynath Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle and Veena Mangeshkar – all are accomplished artists. While Mangeshkar did imbibe important musical skills though her father’s daily classical recitals, it was popular film singer K.L. Saigal who inspired her to take up singing as a serious artistic profession.
Lata Mangeshkar started her musical lessons at the age of five. However, it was not until 1942 when she began her career professionally after her father’s sudden demise. Her career spans 62 years and is still going strong. Throughout her career, she has sung over 1,000 Hindi songs. Moreover, she has also sung in over 36 regional and international languages.
