Des-C and his team are changing things up! They’ve got a new name and a new album! Des-C has changed his name to Des-C Sialkoti is homage to the birthplace of Des-C’s ancestors in Sialkot, Pakistan.
“I wanted to resonate my thanks for the support of my family and no better way than to add Sialkoti to my name”.
Des-C Sialkot will also be releasing new tracks to download for free this whole month! There will be eight free tracks featuring a series of Des-C’s own solo single hits including Kash Kiteh, Nachna Onda, Ud Chalieh and Jiska Husna. There’s even going to be four new cover versions of some Bhangra classics including Sardool Sikanders, ‘Miteran Nu Margeya’, Balwinder Safri’s ‘Kyun Door Door’, Hans Raj Hans ‘ Dil Chori’ and finally Gurdas Maan’s ‘Ki Banu Duniya Da’.
After his debut solo album “First Flight,” Des-C toured Malaysia, Europe, UK and India as well as working on putting together a killer live band. Team Des-C is made up of nine musicians who had been hand picked by Des-C last year to create a band that is full of vitality, talent and that would be able to revive the golden era of bhangra music! We can’t wait to hear what fresh sound this new collaboration creates.
“Panjabi music is at early stages of what can be a huge resurgence with great young talent such as Foji, Jaz Dhami, JK and more. We are creating a new scene with a revival of traditional bhangra style but with our own twist for 2011 and beyond” explains Des-C. “ Team Des-C started with fans and musicians auditioning to be a part of something that they believed in…hundreds of auditions later we finalised a group of young men who had no music industry experience but bags of talent and passion. We’ve grown as a team and are ready for a great summer of lots of new music and shows”.
