October 14th 2012 sees the anniversary of the passing of an individual who was undoubtedly one of the blossoming stars of Punjabi music; Soni Pabla. It is moving that the date will also mark six years of his death, to this very moment it is still difficult for us to put into words how emotional it was for us at Chakdey.Com and even more for the immediate family and colleagues at Planet Recordz.[image src=”http://media2.chakdey.com/Images/ThrowbackTrackSoniPabla.jpg” width=”300″ height=”300″ lightbox=”yes” align=”center”]
We believe it is a fitting tribute for us to remember Soni Pabla the way we do best, by recognising one of his many everlasting songs. We have picked out ‘Panjaeb Yaar Di’ as our Throwback Track which featured on the album Gal Dil Di, released in September 2006 via Planet Recordz. The album itself was produced by the musicman Sukshinder Shinda, so no surprises that it was an effective desi number with both artists at the top of their game. Everything was pretty much perfect with the track from the chorus to the dhad sarangi combo and to Soni Pabla’s distinguished vocals, it was as if the track was giving off a warm fuzzy feeling of joy.
If Soni Pabla was still with us today with his immense talent, he would have given your Geeta Zaildar’s, Gippy Grewal’s and Garry Sandhu’s a run for their money. However, the Almighty is the best of planners. We leave you with a clip of the track itself and of course links to where you can purchase it:
