After successful tracks like Kente Wale Gabaroo, Taur, and We Are All Sikhs, California, USA based Hargo Boparai has returned with a new track – Pindan Vich. As an understudy of Ustad Lal Singh Bhatti, Hargo has channeled his love for Punjab’s folk songs and lyrics into Pindan Vich, which will be released as a free download on Vaisakhi, April 14th, 2013.
Featuring the powerful vocals of Pappi Gill, the song pays homage to Punjab’s rich musical tradition by weaving together the tumbi, sarangi, mandolin, dadh, and, of course, the dhol. Pappi Gill has cemented his status around the world as a legend in boliyan where he performs boliyan at competitions and shows from India to the USA and everywhere in between.
Working together in a recent visit to Punjab, Hargo Boparai and Pappi Gill have seamlessly combined their talents to create Pindan Vich. The song is accompanied by a vibrant video using the iconic imagery of Punjab and the USA and features members of groundbreaking American bhangra teams – Bhangra Empire, Nachde Shokeen Gabroo & Bhangra Knightz (USA).
Hargo Boprai featuring Pappi Gill – Pindan Vich is available to download for free from Soundcloud.
