Single of the Day: Asha Puthli – Mr Moonlight
Taken from her fourth album Asha L’Indiana, today’s Single of the Day is a sublime and down-tempo disco groover from renowned Indian singer and performer Asha Puthli.
Having worked with the likes of Ornette Coleman and Bill Laswell as well starring in films made by Merchant & Ivory and Bruno Corbucci, Puthli was an extremely talented and glamorous vocalist (she was a regular at the one and only Studio 54, infact, the track ‘Music Machine’ from this very album is dedicated to Steve Rubell’s hedonistic disco palace. What a party animal!). Her albums from 1974 and 1982 have been critically lauded and have been sampled by artists such as 50 Cent and Die Fantastischen Vier (!).
A slinky and seductive late-night dance floor mover, ‘Mr. Moonlight’ will gently light up any after-hour party with its gorgeous and sexy melodies provided by the electric Ms. Puthli.
