लता मंगेशकर ने यूं तो कई हिंदी गीतों में अपनी आवाज़ दी , हिंदी के अलावा कई ऐसी भारतीय भाषाएँ भी रही जिसमें हम उनकी आवाज़ का आनंद उठा सकते हैं .कई बार हैरानी होती है कि उस भाषा कि समझ न होने पर भी कोई गायक /गायिकी कैसे इतनी आसानी से उस गाने को न सिर्फ गा जाती है ,बल्कि ये एहसास भी नहीं होने देतीं कि उस भाषा कि उसे समझ नहीं .

फिलहाल सिंधी  और गड्वाली ज़ुबान का एक एक गीत.
फिल्म Hal ta bhajee halooN (Let us elope).This is the only Sindhi song which Lata ji had sung – it appeared in a movie called Hal ta Bhajee Haloon (Let us elope) which was released in 1987, the music was composed by C. Arjun…Munhja supreen

Ajrak is a name given to a unique form of block printed shawls and tiles found in Sindh, Pakistan. Ajraks are also worn by the Saraiki people of Southern Punjab and Kutch. These shawls display special designs and patterns made using block printing by stamps.

This is probably the only song sung by Lata in  Garhwali language .
Man bharmaige meri sudh-budh khwaige – from the Garhwali film Raibar.
मन भरमेगे, मेरी सुधबुध ख्वे गे” from Raibar (रैबार) .

..the director told him that he would not take No! as an asnswer…..hesistatingly lata was asked to sing just one song…..he hummed it for her and she agreed immediately…and history was made …..atleast for telugu audience……so on november 9th 1954,lata recorded this song in vauhini studios….which was jam packed with people who thronged to see their beloved singer……BTW she took a huge remuneration for this one single song which was anyway worth it…….
