London based music producer Sunny-G has teamed up Parineeta Narula to create a beautiful yet haunting version of the Punjabi classic track ‘Akhiyan’. Parineeta is the niece of the popular Punjabi singer and Bollywood playback artist, Jaspinder Narula, who produced the original version of the song many years ago. Like her aunt, Parineeta has a very unique voice that draws you in immediately.
Not only is the song an amazing remake, but it is also a tribute to the late Surinder Kaur. Akhiyan is releasing on the birthday of the late Surinder Kaur who was the voice behind the original track. Sunny-G says: “It’s our little tribute to Surinder Kaur. She was an amazing artist and loved by millions across the world. Her music will live on forever and we just wanted to do something special for her.”
Akhiyan will be available as a free download (available here) for a simple reason according to Sunny-G:
“It’s a no-brainer! It has to be a free download because trying to make money from a tribute track would be so wrong!”
Sunny-G, who has a degree in music from the London College of Music, also brought in Flo Studios as part of this joint venture. Mahi Sarna, the model featured in the video has also played roles in a number of films including Gippy Grewal’s ‘Mirza’. She’s also modeled for some top names including Italian Vogue and Ray Bans!
Sunny-G is currently producing music for Sony Music India…more details soon!
