Punjabi EDM numbers have taken the party world by storm and at the eye of this storm is DJ/Producer Sumit Sethi. After the success of his first track of Punjab Project- Neher Waale Pul, that featured the powerhouse Sona Mohapatra, Sethi has once again released another hardcore entertainer, his second single, with another absolute powerhouse of a performer, Jasmin Sandlas. The track, titled Veera, draws from two famous folk songs that popularly feature in Punjabi weddings and also has a video directed by the popular Punjabi music
director, Robby Singh.
Sumit Sethi does not just want to brazenly remix the old Punjabi tracks. The Punjab Project aims at conserving and preserving the heritage of Punjabi folk music by giving the traditional strains of folk, a contemporary feel. This would help preserve the rich culture and musical traditions, poetry and the legendary artists who created these timeless pieces.
This Delhi based artist has been involved with several big Bollywood hits such as Chittiyaan Kalaiyaan (Programmer- Roy), Pink Lips (Hate Story 2), Hangover (Kick), Singham Theme (Singham Returns) and many more hits and has performed live at shows such as IIFA, Common Wealth Games as well as prestigious corporates and weddings, selling-out over thousands of tickets to big venues. From being a favourite headliner at celeb weddings of the likes of Yuvraj Singh and Diya Mirza among many others, to corporate events, college and music festivals to making the Spanish audience groove to Indian music at IIFA Stomp Mulafest in Madrid, Spain in
2016-Sumit has achieved quite the feat in his music career.
Jasmin Sandlas is yet another hugely popular name in both the Bollywood and Punjabi music circuits. The US-based, bold, red haired singer is a talent like no other with a unique tone and powerful vocals. She rose to fame with the groovy track Yaar Na Mile from Salman Khan starred Kick. Thereafter, she has built her own fan base with several hit singles. Having both DJ Sethi and Jasmin on the track is a definite formula for success.
