Indian singer, and occasional music-composer. She is one of the best-known and most respected playback singers in India.

Mangeshkar's career started in 1942 and has spanned over seven decades. She has recorded songs for over a thousand Hindi films and has sung songs in over thirty-six regional Indian languages and foreign languages, though primarily in Marathi and Hindi. She is the elder sister of singers Asha Bhosle, Hridaynath Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar and Meena Mangeshkar. She is the second vocalist to have ever been awarded the Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian honour.

Mangeshkar was featured in the Guinness Book of World Records from 1974 to 1991 for having made the most recordings in the world. The claim was that she had recorded approximately 25,000 solo, duet, and chorus-backed songs in 20 Indian languages between 1948 to 1974. The category was removed in 1991 and re-introduced in 2011. In 2011 Guinness officially acknowledged Mangeshkar's sister Asha Bhosle as the most recorded artist in music history.

Sy Scholfield quotes "In Search of Lata Mangeshkar" by Harish Bhimani (Indus, 1995), p. 61: "At 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, the 28th of September 1929, history was born in the form of a baby girl to Shrimati Mangeshkar, wife of the reputed singer-actor Master Dinanath Mangeshkar. The delivery took place at Shrimati's sister's house, in the Sikh 'Muhalla' (quarters) of the town of Indore in Central India."
