Carnatic vocalist C Lalitha of ‘Bombay sisters’ passes away


Chennai: Popular Carnatic singer C Lalitha, the youngest of the ‘Bombay sisters’, passed away at the age of 85. She breathed her last on Tuesday in Chennai.

Lalitha and her sister C Saroja had performed hundreds of musical concerts both inside and outside the country since 1963.

The sisters staged musical concerts only as a duo and released albums together in Malayalam, Tamil, Sanskrit, Kannada, Telugu, Hindi and Marathi languages.

‘Sapthaham’, and ‘Sundara Narayana Guruvayurappan Gananjali’ are the renowned albums of the sisters in Malayalam.

Though they pursued most of their musical journeys during the days spent in Chennai, they were known to the world as ‘Bombay sisters’.

The sisters had said that many offers from the film industry were declined as they could not sing alone without the support of each other.
