Punjabi Pop

Here are a couple of tracks I first featured way back in the early days of this blog, when visitors were few and far between and passers-by generally just kept passing. I have dusted them off because I think they deserve a larger audience.

Jasbir Jassi is a leading purveyor of Punjabi pop. You can find out more about him in the Profile section of his website where, if you are so inclined, you can also take innocent pleasure in the slightly wonky English. I particularly like the reference to him being the most "dotted-on" member of his family, which makes it sound like someone got carried away when applying the tilaka.

These two songs are from the late 1990s, but he is still going strong.

"Kudi Kudi" - Jasbir Jassi

"Dil Le Gayee" - Jasbir Jassi

And here he is in action.
