Eastern Eye caught up with Shin to speak about music, the new show, the future of bhangra and his extraordinary career.
You have had an amazing and long musical journey; what is keeping the passion alive?
I thank god every day for giving me a career that has never been like a job for me. I have loved singing for as long as I can remember and still do to this day. Singing and performing are my drugs of choice. I am as high as a kite when I’m on stage, and that’s what keeps the fire of passion blazing to this day.
Do you remember the first time you took to stage?
In 1981, I entered a Mohammed Rafi song competition and performed for the first time in front of a full house.
