BANTA JOINS FORCES WITH T-SERIES AND PRESENT TO YOU HIS DEBUT ALBUM “TOO DAMN DESI”
Born in India and moved to London at the age of 6, Banta has been influenced by Punjabi music since a very young age. He was no stranger to Punjab spending most of his summer holidays and visiting two or three times a year.
With no family involved in the industry Banta‘s curiosity of why people loved or disliked a song so much was always based around the music. He joined 4×4 Bhangra group and began playing the dhol taught by Ustaad Billy. He then went on to playing the Harmonium and Dholki to develop his musical knowledge.
“Honestly For me the main thing that taught me how to put a song together is YouTube and Google there are plenty of tutorials that I picked up new techniques on how to use the music software. As Babbu Maan said “Saint Google” And with the guidance of Ustaad Billy I was able to come up with music that defines me.” ~ Banta
Banta is ready to release his debut album, ‘TOO DAMN DESI’ which features some of Punjab and Uk’s finest singers. The official track listing for the album is;

The 11 track album took three years to produce because Banta wanted to ensure the lyrics, music, singers were all in place and everything blended in this project.
“The hard part of bringing out a album is the financial side, we artists spend thousands of pounds doing videos to a high quality, spend money on marketing, advertising and the list goes on, it’s a humble request that if you like the album PLEASE download it legally and support” – Banta
