Panjabi music scene is blowing up.

Recommended Posts

         In this recent decade, Panjabi music has hit a peak. I remember when I was 10 , my favorite singer was Jazzy B and his 2005 Romeo CD was a hit . He's still good but the young cats have taken over from Jazzy B , Dr Zeus , Sukhshinder Shinda , Babbu Mann , Gippy Grewal , Gurdas Mann and others. Todays biggest artist are Diljeet Dosanjh , Sidhu Moosewala , Sherry Mann , Mankirt Aulakh , Parmash Verma , Jassi Gill , Guru Randahawa , Ammy Virk , Zora Randhawa , Jasmine Sandlas , Hardy Sandhu & many others . Many of these guys average 40-50 million views each and some songs can reach 100-200 million views like US artists . This is great news as we Sikhs have made Panjabi famous , Sikhs carry Panjabi when hindoos and mullahs abandoned it and now it's GLOBAL . Now Panjabi is spreading all through out India and will NEVER die .

Also Daler Mehdi was awful with his tunak tunak garabge which had been a low point for Panjabi media. Thankfully it's over.

From a cultural P.R. and optics perspective, as mentioned by OP, it's a positive thing a certain aspect of our culture is thriving not only in India but wherever in the world our people reside. One doesn't have to be an admirer or even a listener of such artistes and their music to understand the big-picture, objective, cultural aspects of getting our ideas, our ways, and our language "out there" in these times when the growing global mood and desire is moving currently in the direction of erasing those aspects of our nature and being that makes us different from each other even if those differences are perfectly just and unobjectionable.

To be fair, I struggle to listen to most of it, lmao. It's just basic level stuff designed to get people dancing or in some cases over-sentimental about an airbrushed past.

What i have noticed is, their behaviour aside, the pagh has been made "cool" again by some of these singers/actors. Sardars r centre of the attraction in films, sardars r shown to be what they actually are/have been in history.

A lot of deliberate negativity and propaganda has been spread by these h@ramis in bollywood, where theyve made sikhs look like mugs/f00ls. This has had bad implications for us in the way we are perceived by others. 

Thankfully the resurgence of panjabi cinema, and new wave of hit makers in music has reversed this trend. Alot of these songs have humungous hits on them on YouTube, due to the fact that theyre mostly released on tseries label. Millions across S. Asia r viewing them, despite most not understanding the words.

Spot-on.

For the religious or the spiritual, this gaana and nachna & tapna is most likely kaljug, but as I said it all weirdly contributes to an awareness of certain imagery or symbols that young Sikh Punjabis simply wouldn't be exposed to if the alternative was viewing our lives purely through the lens of Indian Bollywood, which enjoys casting us in the light of the harmless clown or the boisterous and unintelligent fighter for the Indian cause.

Absolutely! Another example is of that behsharam bollywood n indian media anti sikh propaganda in full works is with a new docu/film about porn star/actress sunny leone. If she want to create a film, sanu ki..... But the film/docu is titled as "karanjit KAUR". Nobody barely acknowledges her real name or even knows, but why title it as that? Her surname is malhotra i believe, y hasnt that been used in the title? Its plastered all over fb/twitter. Disgraceful.

obviously it is to tar all Kaurs with the gandigi of this 'actress'  God knows how many rapes are happening already but if it somehow becomes the case that our daughters and sisters are put at danger in daily life  then we need to shut it down

Look at this pathetic tweet from a rapistan paper. Hardliner? When hindus were protesting a bollywood film for depicting a hindu princess wit muslim king, did these guys use words like "hardliners" to describe em? Doubt it.

<banned word filter activated> these Bhramins. Biased. Sunny Leone too can drown in a pool of d*cks for going with that title.

The appropriation of religious sentiment for cultural profiteering (pub, club today and dharmic geet tomorrow); intentional conflation of inimical cultural traits (misogyny, androcentrism, substance abuse and blind belligerence) with religious sentiments is beginning to tell on the kitsch Punjabi media. Punjabi singers are actually beginning to be questioned.

    • That's the narrative that the Muslims want us to believe so that we can be their useful idio.ts in fighting against the CAA which incidentally helps Sikhs from Pakistan to get political asylum in India. The stupidity of those Sikhs who think that just because they have a common enemy in the RSS means that we should be making common cause with the Muslims is the same mentality that enslaved us in 1947. When will Sikhs wake up and understand that there is no such thing as friendship with Muslims without a heavy price that will one day paid by the Sikhs in the future.  All this characterisation of Muslims as being victims which is being propagated by the Sikh media will disarm the Sikh population and leave them unable to understand just what a danger Islam is. While the rest of India is getting rid of their Muslims, our actions are ensuring that any Muslims who want safety will want to come to Punjab and our naïve Sikhs will be ripe for a love jihad onslaught and the useful idio.ts in our community will be financing the building of Mosques and ensure that Islam once again becomes the danger that it was pre-1947 in East Punjab. 
    • Cycling is bad for the Economy Hilarious but true too 😄  Sanjay Thakrar, CEO at Euro Exim Bank Ltd.  got economists thinking when he said :   A cyclist is a disaster for the country's economy  - He does not buy the car & does not take car loan  - Does not buy car insurance  - Does not buy Fuel  - Does not send his car for servicing & repairs  - Does not use paid Parking  - Does not become Obese  - Yes,.....and well, damn it !!  Healthy people are not needed for economy. They do not buy drugs. They do not go to Hospitals & Doctors.  They add nothing to country's GDP.  On the contrary, every new McDonald outlet creates at least 30 jobs - 10 Cardiologists, 10 Dentists, 10 weight loss experts apart from people working in McDonald outlet.  Choose wisely: A Cyclist or a McDonald ?   Worth thinking. 🤔🤔😀😀 PS. walking is even worse. they do not even buy a bicycle.
    • ਰਤਨਾ ਰਤਨ ਪਦਾਰਥ ਬਹੁ ਸਾਗਰੁ ਭਰਿਆ ਰਾਮ ॥ ਜਵਾਹਿਰਾਤ ਉਤੇ ਜਵਾਹਿਰਾਤ ਦੀ ਦੌਲਤ ਨਾਲ ਵੱਡਾ ਸਮੁੰਦਰ ਪਰੀਪੂਰਨ ਹੈ। The great ocean is full of the treasures of jewels upon jewels.   ਬਾਣੀ ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਲਾਗੇ ਤਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਹਥਿ ਚੜਿਆ ਰਾਮ ॥ ਜੋ ਰੱਬੀ ਕਲਾਮ ਗੁਰਾਂ ਦੀ ਬਾਣੀ ਨਾਲ ਜੁੜੇ ਹਨ, ਉਹ ਇਸ ਨੂੰ ਪ੍ਰਾਪਤ ਕਰਦੇ ਹਨ। Those who are committed to the Word of the Guru's Bani, see them come into their hands.   ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਲਾਗੇ ਤਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਹਥਿ ਚੜਿਆ ਨਿਰਮੋਲਕੁ ਰਤਨੁ ਅਪਾਰਾ ॥ ਜੋ ਗੁਰੂ ਕੀ ਬਾਣੀ ਨਾਲ ਜੁੜੇ ਹਨ, ਉਹ ਅਮੋਲਕ ਤੇ ਲਾਸਾਨੀ ਜਵੇਹਰ (ਨਾਮ) ਨੂੰ ਪਾ ਲੈਂਦੇ ਹਨ। This priceless, incomparable jewel comes into the hands of those who are committed to the Word of the Guru's Bani.   ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਅਤੋਲਕੁ ਪਾਇਆ ਤੇਰੀ ਭਗਤਿ ਭਰੇ ਭੰਡਾਰਾ ॥ ਜੋ, ਹੇ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਸੁਆਮੀ! ਤੇਰੇ ਅਮਾਪ ਨਾਮ ਨੂੰ ਪ੍ਰਾਪਤ ਹੁੰਦੇ ਹਨ, ਉਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਦੇ ਖ਼ਜ਼ਾਨੇ ਤੇਰੀ ਪ੍ਰੇਮਮਈ ਸੇਵਾ ਨਾਲ ਪਰੀਪੂਰਨ ਰਹਿੰਦੇ ਹਨ। They obtain the immeasurable Name of the Lord, Har, Har; their treasure is overflowing with devotional worship.   ਸਮੁੰਦੁ ਵਿਰੋਲਿ ਸਰੀਰੁ ਹਮ ਦੇਖਿਆ ਇਕ ਵਸਤੁ ਅਨੂਪ ਦਿਖਾਈ ॥ ਮੈਂ ਦੇਹਿ ਸਮੁਖ਼ੰਦਰ ਨੂੰ ਰਿੜਕਿਆ ਹੈ ਅਤੇ ਮੈਂ ਇੱਕ ਮਨੋਹਰ ਚੀਜ਼ ਨਜਰੀਂ ਪੈਂਦੀ ਤੱਕੀ ਹੈ। I have churned the ocean of the body, and I have seen the incomparable thing come into view.   ਗੁਰ ਗੋਵਿੰਦੁ ਗਦ਼ਵਿੰਦੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਹੈ ਨਾਨਕ ਭੇਦੁ ਨ ਭਾਈ ॥੪॥੧॥੮॥ ਗੁਰੂ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਹੈ ਅਤੇ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਗੁਰੂ ਹੈ, ਹੇ ਨਾਨਕ! ਦੋਨਾਂ ਵਿੱਚ ਕੋਈ ਫਰਕ ਨਹੀਂ, ਮੇਰੇ ਵੀਰ। The Guru is God, and God is the Guru, O Nanak; there is no difference between the two, O Siblings of Destiny. ||4||1||8||
    • i liked the movie! it was beautifully made imo.   they covered Guru Nanak ji not wanting to where the bhaman thread and not worshiping at jagganath mandir because of the idol and the kazi accusing guru ji of being a kafir,  and guru ji being against caste with bhai lalo and malik bhago etc  theres only so little you can cover in a 2 hr movie.       in future if they make similar movies they should get singhs to play the sikh characters. 
    • watched this video and can see why Guru ji didn't want us to join in eating this way, it has somepoints worth considering but I wouldn't take it too far like current idiots in  India who want to ethnic cleanse.
