MUMBAI: Following the resounding success of her recent song Sahibo, the Sufi folk singer, songwriter and dynamic live performer is set to release ‘Kale Rang Da Paranda’ – the second song from her EP, Sufistication Folk Sessions, a beautiful and joyful punjabi song this is perfect for all indian weddings.
The award-winning singer with her Punjabi and Sufi folk pop live project “Sufistication”, has performed at some of the biggest music festivals like Jaipur Literature Festival, Kutch Folk Festival, Reth, Oktoberfest, for n to name a few. His viral track “Hukus Bukus” made its way into the popular web series “The Family Man,” and also garnered over 5 million views on YouTube.
With this release, Aabha revives the popular Punjabi bridal folk song, “Kale Rang Da Paranda”, sung like a Tappa in all sangeets, immortalized by none other than the legendary folk singer of the year, Surinder Kaur.
Aabha, who began learning Hindustani classical music at the age of nine, is credited with restoring long-forgotten Kashmiri folk accents and instruments, and is hailed as a pioneer of Kashmiri folk pop music. Regarded as one of the great original voices to emerge from India’s independent music industry, Aabha is a vibrant and dynamic singer who aims to bridge the gap between traditional music and modern music.
Overwhelmed by the song’s release, Aabha Hanjura said, “I have been performing Punjabi folk live at my concerts for many years now and the energy and melodies of the rich Punjabi folklore have always moved the crowds during our shows whether we are playing a club, a wedding or a music festival, Sufistications versions of Punjabi folk have always been a crowd favourite, Paranda will be the first time I release a Punjabi folk track with my band and I hope that people will give this as much love as they have for my other songs!
