Peppy beats for the young

Music is always inspiring and richer when it comes from personal experiences. And this is what Punjabi singer Diljit Dosanjh considers as his driving force — his profound love for his native place and his proximity towards his village and home.

Diljit, who is primarily a singer, has also ventured into acting. He has performed in Bollywood box-offices like Jatt and Juliet 2, Patol Patiala and ‘Punjab 1984’, for which he was under the spotlight as it revolved around the anti-Sikh riots.

He played a typical village boy, Shivjeet Singh Mann, in the movie which is about love, relationships and how life changes once inseparables are separated from their loved ones.

He is currently testing waters on ‘Spoken Word Poetry’ as part for the ‘MTV Pepsi Ride Series’ and is very excited by the experience. The ‘Pepsi Ride’, which has featured big hits like Kailash Kher is now featuring him along with Jaggi paaji.

“A big thanks to the team, especially Jaggi paaji, who introduced me to the concept of ‘Spoken Word’. I hope that this collaboration turns out to be successful and that the youth like my track.”

Sharing a bit about the new number, ‘The Singh is So Stylish’, in a chirpy voice, he says that it’s a commercial mix which comprises a compilation of several tracks and hence features diverse, eclectic tunes.

The song comprises of Hindi and Punjabi lyrics with tinges of elements of Hindi added to it.

He adds, “What impressed me most about the concept of ‘Spoken Word’ was that they select songs that have a positive message to spread among the youth. Since the youth today is fond of rap and fast beats, as a way of expression, we have also included a rap by ikka on the track.”

He describes the peppy track as a “pleasant one with upbeat tunes and unique
mixes’’.

He says, ‘The Singh is So Stylish’ is what I believe in. Everybody can be stylish; but I feel that if you wear a turban, it is a royal feeling — just like a king.”

For him, music has always come from within. He has never looked as it as a challenge but as an artwork that promises fun and energy.
