The Bhangra industry has recvied another blow today with the death of Ustad Kuldeep Manak Ji, who can only be discribed as the God Father of modern day Bhangra, a true inspritional figure to most of the people in the industry from Jazzy B to PAnajbi MC To Skills Inc To Tru Skool & JK and the list goes on.

I guess it's fair to say how Michael Jackson inspired so many people in the mianstreme (and Asian) music, Kuldeep Manak was the same to the Punjabi / Bhangra industry.

His song's have been covered & remixed so many times it's hard to say who's done a cover & who's done a remix, but it all goes down to show how popular the man was.

Below are a few words from the industry.

Jazzy B
