Gabroo Punjabi Munde” by Sidhu Tajpuri
“Gabroo Punjabi Munde” is the first single from British Punjabi artist Sidhu Tajpuri. Born and raised in Leamington Spa on a healthy supply of roots music has given birth to this great new talent.
Sidhu Tajpuri was first seen fronting the Tigerstyle band on sarangi and main vocals for their performance of “Maan Doabe Da” for BBC TWO’s Desi DNA in 2008. Since then Tajpuri has become a consistent main vocalist in the Tigerstyle live outfit, performing for live sessions for Niki Bedi and Friction at the BBC Asian Network, at the launch of Anglo-Sikh Heritage month at the Tower of London and the Village India Festival in 2009. More recently he performed alongside UK Grime artist Shizzio as part of the Tigerstyle concert in Stockholm which was streamed live.
Tajpuri has also made his entry into the world of playback singing, having voiced the Tigerstyle composition of the Sikh hymn “Gagan Damama Bajeyo” for the film Chhevan Dariya (The Sixth River) which released worldwide in 2010.
“Gabroo Punjabi Munde” is taken from Sidhu Tajpuri’s debut album out late this summer.
