The track is the first 2011 release from Tigerstyle’s boutique label Soldier Sound Recordings. “Gabroo Punjabi Munde” reveals itself as a high energy explosion in traditional Punjabi folk style that will keep you hitting the repeat button!
Although this is Sidhu’s first official solo release, he is not a newcomer to the world of music. In fact, 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 as early as 2008. Since then, he has consistently featured as a 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 on www.ustream.com
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.
Look out for “Gabroo Punjabi Munde” on Sidhu Tajpuri’s debut album out later this summer! In the meantime, check out Sidhu in the video clips below!
