Lata pays tribute to Pancham

MUMBAI: On legendary composer RD Burman’s 22nd death anniversary on January 4, melody queen Lata

Mangeshkar paid tribute to him by saying that his “music will continue to spread magic”.

Mangeshkar, who teamed up with Burman for songs like Dilbar dil se pyare, Koi ladki koi ladka, Aaja piya tohe pyar doon, Mere naina sawan bhadon and Tujhse naraz nahin zindagi among others, posted her message of tribute on Twitter.

She said the music and memories of Burman, who was lovingly nicknamed Pancham, are alive even today. Mangeshkar added that she’s sure that his music will continue to spread magic in the coming hundred years too.
