We now take up the solo songs of female singers whose main body of work falls into the vintage era.
Raajkumari is one of those singers who has left quite profound impact during the transition period from vintage to golden era. In terms of numbers, her presence in 1948 appears not to be very comparable to the female singers we have covered so far, however that does not take away the charm of her voice.
