The long awaited return of Surj Sahota is over! The singing sensation of the golden years of Bhangra is back with an album very soon. But due to popular demand from his fans and Bhangra aficionados the world over, he unveils two beautiful gems immediately.
‘Tu Mil Gayi‘ and ‘Holi Holi‘ firmly stamp Surj‘s authority on the music scene with panache. These brand new tracks don’t shy away from the unique Sahota sound that defined this colossal band in the 1980’s & 90’s.
If you’ve ever fallen for folk love stories like Heer Ranjha, Sassi Punnu or Mirza Sahiba then you’re going to fall in love all over again with ‘Tu Mil Gayi‘. It’s along the ‘Hass Hogia‘ and ‘Dang Ditha‘ rhythm and takes the Sahota sound on a new musical crusade.
‘Holi Holi‘ are the only words to be whispered on dance floors as the Sahota style Reggae rift rps into this track to keep the feet doing their business. The song has been written and sung by Surj in a way that completely sucks you into his musical journey.
The musical journey continues with Surj‘s live performances, which has always been a key part of his artistry. Having cut his teeth with a stomping performance at the Royal Albert Hall early on in his career, he is now looking forward to touring extensively with his full band.
The live performances together with these tracks follow a long period of reflection by Surj Sahota and the loud and vociferous call for a comeback by his army of fans. They are also the result of a musical talent that just could not be kept away.
Prepare…….and prepare well to let the Sahota sound flow into your soul!
