Gurgulshan Singh is the voice behind the folk music of this golden era. With its unique composition and poetic vocals, the song aroused immense love from the audience.
“I was working on a simple chord pattern when I had Gurgulshan in my studio. I was laying these R&B style chords on an old Wurlitzer piano that became part of the song’s signature. I told him gave this chill laid back groove in his headphones and said, what do you think? and he just started singing Mai Teri Tu Mera over it. It was almost one of those things you accidentally trip over. The juxtaposition melody against those chords brought out a new feeling from an old track,” says music producer Janapriyan Levine

The grooves are completely contagious. Attend any Punjabi wedding or event where there is music, when the dhol and the tumbi kick in, everyone in the place starts dancing. In the early 2000s, bhangra was the biggest thing in New York clubs. Truly one of the coolest sounds in the planet.”
