Jasbir S. Thabal is from Northern California and first came onto the scene in 2006 when he joined the Bay Area Bhangra Empire as their singer. In 2009 he was recruited by Virse De Waris, a popular traditional bhangra team, to sing for them. During that time he took lessons from Ustad Sultan Akhtar, whom he impressed with his quick mastery of singing. He tells us he has been “strongly influenced by great artists like Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Harbhajan Maan, and Surjit Khan“.
Hari-B, is also from the SF Bay Area is a rising star whose reach is growing on an international level. From a young age, bhangra has been a major influential part of Hari’s life. He was only 17 when started to recognize the production side of bhangra and has now evolved into producing/remixing and promoting. Hari-B cites “Dj H, Aman Hayer, Sukshinder Shinda, and Dr.Zeus” as his inspirations.Look out for Hari-B’s professional debut with his first mainstream release which is a collaboration with Sukhdev Sukha and Sukwinder Panchii for two tracks featured on Kalikwest Connected Vol.1. Hari is also working hard on a exclusive single with Dj Gurps.
Keep it locked on Urban Asian for all future releases from this North American duo.
