Bhangra’s latest sensation Jind Mahi and Desi vocalist Binder Pasla are back with their new fun track – ‘Kanjuce’ [Stingy] – a quirky and humorous single about husbands, wives, their friends and a gentleman’s close relationship with, wait for it, his money.
Punctuated with household banter across the melody, the everyday calamities of a cheap skate man makes the perfect anecdote for this lively ditty. Everything from his embarrassing behavior at family functions to the stress he feels when parting with his beloved pennies is captured impeccably by Jind Mahi in this clever, witty and upbeat track. The song builds to a crescendo delivering a meaningful message: that a ‘Kanjuce’ [stingy person] will always live an inhibited life unless he parts with some of his money and lives life to the full.
The track features vocals by Jind Mahi’s father Binder Pasla, a Bhangra veteran, and is produced by Jind Mahi. Previous releases have included “Saday Naal”, which was Jind’s vocal debut and the hit “English Daru”, which was his first official release on the Three Records label, set up by international urban Bhangra/Bollywood group RDB. Binder is an experienced vocalist and songwriter behind hit tracks such as ‘Yaari’, ‘Oh Preeti’ and ‘Sajna’ and has worked with several high-profile producers, including RDB, DJ H and E=MC.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the new track Jind Mahi says:
‘The song originated from a household debate regarding which gender was guilty of being the most Kanjuce. Within minutes of the discussion, including a long list from my Mum, it became evident that the males are definitely the guilty party in this area. I had an amazing experience making this song and video, with many laughs along the way and I hope you enjoy legally purchasing it!;).’
Binder Pasla says simply about the track:
‘The moral of the story is to be happy, enjoy life and don’t be Kanjuce – YOLO!’
An amusing quote sums up a stingy (Kanjuce) man as the following:
‘Collecting money from a stingy guy is like throwing your hook into an ocean of one fish. You are likely not to come up with anything. However, if you do it right, you could turn that stingy boyfriend or guy into a money printing press.’
