Songs of 1945 @ SoY :: Female Solo Songs – Amirbai Karnataki [1]

If we take sheer number of songs as THE criterion for selecting The Best Singer for The Year, then Amirbai Karanataki undoubtedly takes the shield. The songs that I could locate on YT, from the ones mentioned in HFGK, make a two-post long list. However, that is not the only crireion we need to judge her. She has three films where she is the lead singer and has all songs to her account. The list is strong enough to make the first part of her 1945 solo songs.She also has seven other films where she is one of the female singers (listed in the 2nd part, to be followed.)

In July 2011, I opted to retire from my active career as a practicing management professional. In the 38 years that I pursued this career, I had opportunity to work in diverse capacities, in small-to-medium-to-large engineering companies. Whether I was setting up Greenfield projects or Brownfield projects, nurturing the new start-ups or accelerating the stabilized unit to a next phase growth, I had many more occasions to take the paths uncharted. The life then was so challenging! One of the biggest casualty in that phase was my disregards towards my hobbies - Be with The Family, Enjoy Music form Films of 1940s to mid-1970s period, write on whatever I liked to read, pursue amateur photography and indulge in solving the chess problems. So I commenced my Second Innings to focus on this area of my life as the primary occupation. At the end of four years, I am now quite a regular blogger. I have been able to build a few very strong pen-relationships. I maintain contact with 38-years of my First Innings as freelance trainer and process facilitator. And yet, The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.

  1. Dear Ashok ji,

    I find your Blogs absolutely fascinating – they are a veritable treasure trove. About Amirbai, I do not know whether you are covering the Films in which she has acted also.

    Here’s a song from pre-1945 :

    (banni tera jhoola hai anmol…)

    With warm regards


    1. Dear Partha Chanda,
      Thanks for your encouraging response.
      I am working on collecting fairly accurate, and more enlightening information than what is already available on net at present on vintage era singers. Let us if that aspiration does fructify or not.
      Your clip of Station Master song led me to listen few more songs from that film. Thanks for leading to this treasure.
