Fall may be quickly approaching, but there is one album that just released that still has the perfect summer dance vibe. Canadian based Bhangra band En Karma’s second album #enkarmafied is definitely a must have for bhangra fans! En Karma comprises of West Midlands born Pip Dhaliwal (Drums) , Nick Chowlia (Keys) and Canadian residences Inder Kooner (Singer) and Karamvir Cooner (Dholi). Just a few days after release, it has shot up in popularity and has been climbing the charts! The album hit the number 2 spot in the world iTunes chart in under 12 hours (click here to buy) and is still standing at a high spot.
The 4 members of En Karma have an avid relation to the Bhangra Music industry, which goes back to the 1990s where Nick and Pip toured with some of the biggest Bhangra legends – Malkit Singh, Jazzy B and Apna Sangeet just to name a few – and officially represented ‘bhangra’ at the Canadian Winter Olympics in 2010.
#enkarmafied features an array of 10 songs ranging from En Karma’s usual live sound, traditional Bhangra beats, slow love songs to a Hindi track which you will for sure get a Bollywood vibe from it. The first single Dil Naal Khedey sung by Inder Kooner supports an edgy video shot in Vancouver and stars Punjabi actress Gurpreet Grewal. It’s an album which showcases the musical progression of the band and contains some exciting international collaborations including Aman Hayer, DJ Vix, Sasha Tripati and many more international artists. Weddings, melas, festivals and stadiums have their stages clear for Inder, Pip, Nick and Karmvir who are locked, reloaded and ready to unleash their new album.
