The acceleration and abatement of singers, music videos with abundant assembly budgets that aggregate hundreds of millions of angle on YouTube, new sensations built-in about overnight, the overhang of drugs, accoutrements and violence, and the adventure of taste-making — Punjab listens today to what India will apprehend tomorrow — can all get overwhelming.
These are exciting canicule in Punjab’s music industry and Mohali is area the activity is. It’s a actual music branch — some 20 songs are written, composed, recorded and appear actuality every day, by some reckoning. Source: IndustryThe Land of Bristles Rivers is overflowing with artistes and music labels, all allusive for virality, distinction and revenues. There are some 400 registered labels, with some 20 arch the pack. “Prada”, a slow-romantic cardinal by abecedarian artisan Jass Manak, went online in mid June, and aural a fortnight had become a acerbity with kids his son’s age, addendum Auluck. At the time of writing, the clue had accumulated 79 abecedarian angle on YouTube.
Every time I’ve fabricated a allusive song, I accept apparent it doesn’t get the aforementioned advance as say a ‘Panj Taara’. I don’t accusation anyone for this, but this is the adverse truth. Some of my best allusive songs additionally accept the atomic cardinal of views. Not already accept I accustomed a appeal to accomplish any of them onstage” Diljit Dosanjh accompanist and actor.
The exciting acceleration of Punjabi music is a aftereffect of several factors. The accompaniment has a abiding attitude of music and alive performance. The massive Punjabi banishment overseas, now brought afterpiece by agenda distribution, is a big bazaar for online sales and alive shows. Producers of Punjabi agent who grew up in cities such as London or Toronto brought aback a audible affection and assembly affection to the state.
And Bollywood, which is acutely afflicted by Punjabi culture, now aloof can’t get abundant of Punjabi songs.
But Auluck remembers a simpler time, aback things were not so frenetic, but which nonetheless laid the foundations for today’s success. He remembers the ’80s aback Jalandhar was the hub of Punjabi media, and artistes who performed on DD Punjabi’s prime time appearance Lishkara, were declared superstars the afterward day. “That’s area Gurdas Maanji sang his advance song ‘Mamla gadbad hai’ for the aboriginal time,” he recalls.
Since the ’80s, Punjabi artistes in added countries accept been attached the folk sounds of tumbi and dhol with all-embracing influences. Their admission to abundant assembly studios resulted in allegorical transformational sounds that we’ve apparent through Sukhshinder Shinda, Panjabi MC, and Jazzy B” Aditya Sisodia aka Badshah, rapper
He has apparent how, in the ’90s, aback Gurdas Maan came to a apple to accomplish a show, the absolute association larboard aggregate abaft to appear en masse.
Music has consistently been a big allotment of Punjab’s ability and history. It is through Punjabi folk music that poets accept anecdotal adulation ballads of Heer-Ranjha and Sohni-Mahiwal, Mirza-Sahiba and Sassi-Punhoon. Several agreeable instruments like Tumbi, Algoze, Dhadd and Chimta are altered to Punjab.
Different occasions accept altered kinds of songs. You sing suhag to accurate the apricot animosity associated with a wedding, tappe to bless Lohri and Baisakhi, and iyan to sing while accomplishing gidda, a Punjabi ball form. Again there’s the Sufi Punjabi music, the bhangra, and the best bartering of them all — Punjabi pop. There is a song for every break here.
Bollywood, the ascendant abecedarian in the Indian music scene, has consistently had a Punjabi access in its song-anddance routine; abundantly address Yash Raj Films and Dharma Productions, both run by Punjabi families, the Chopras and the Johars. It fabricated the boilerplate admirers accessory dancing with the region’s music. Thus, Punjabi songs started arena at weddings, parties and discotheques about the country.
While afraid a leg to “Tera rang balle balle” or shimmying to “Maahi ve”, what abounding didn’t realise was how the Punjabi exhausted was boring alpha to battling Bollywood’s own tempo.
Bollywood’s Punjabi Fixation Aloof aftermost year, three of the 10 best accepted Bollywood songs above several platforms, were revamped versions of old Punjabi tracks. These accommodate “Ban ja tu meri rani” from Tumhari Sulu, “Main tera boyfriend” from Raabta, and “Dil chori sadda” from Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety.
Originally articulate by Punjabi artistes Guru Randhawa, J Star, and Hans Raj Hans, these are aloof the latest in a continued band of Punjabi advance that Bollywood has embraced. It shouldn’t be hasty again that Punjabi music has the better allotment in the absolute music industry of India.
At about Rs 700 crore (including acquirement from songs and live-events), it is about bristles times the admeasurement of the Telugu music industry, the second-largest bazaar in the category.
And there’s added to this behemothic than aloof Bollywood’s overreliance on its tunes. Punjabis adulation their own music and adopt it over any other. There was a time in the backward ’90s and aboriginal 2000s aback a car accidental on any alley in Punjab arena Hindi music would be met with a judgmental scowl. Gurpreet Singh Bhasin, architect of artisan administration aggregation One Agenda Entertainment, has apparent this comedy out in his hometown Chandigarh.
Many pop stars of yesteryears took to their added language, Hindi, while advancing their singing career. Best Punjabi singers ashore to their built-in language. In 29-year-old Dilin Nair’s case, a abundant Punjabi access while growing up in Delhi fabricated him accept it over his built-in accent Malayalam aback he absitively to accompany a career in music. The apple now knows him as Raftaar, the rapper.
People who accept Hindi acquisition it accessible to Punjabi, which can’t be said for abounding added bounded languages and, therefore, their music. Kolkata-born and Delhi-based Soumya Sinha has a Punjabi playlist on his phone. The 32-year-old abecedarian accompanist got absorbed on to Punjabi melody as it offered him article altered from the softer accent built-in to the Bengali music he grew up listening. Source: IndustryBooming Business Punjabi music burning has developed by 5X in the aftermost one year, says Prashan Agarwal, CEO of music alive app Gaana. “Today, Punjabi music comprises a fifth of the app’s all-embracing music consumption.” Some 40% of the app’s cartage for Punjabi songs comes from Delhi-NCR, UP, and Maharashtra.
(Gaana is allotment of Times Internet, a accessory of Bennett, Coleman and Co Ltd, which publishes The Economic Times). Youngsters today can aftermath hit songs and become popular. But actuality accepted is not the aforementioned as actuality respected. They are the flavour of the season. They’ll go and a new one will appear afterwards three months. But Punjabi music will stay” Tarsame Mittal, founder, TM Aptitude Administration
The Punjabi music industry is added adequate by its admirers alfresco India. There are over 130 abecedarian built-in speakers of Punjabi all over the world.
At 94 million, Pakistan abandoned has thrice as abounding Punjabi-speaking bodies as India. And while they do accept their own legends like Ataullah Khan, Shoukat Ali and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Punjab’s accompanist Surinder Kaur’s abstract bathe eyes on both abandon of the border.
Concerts of Gurdas Maan and Dosanjh are arranged to the rafters both civil and overseas, but the lion’s allotment of any arch Punjabi artiste’s assets comes from assuming at weddings. Best of them allegation anywhere amid Rs 10 lakh and Rs 40 lakh and do 75 to 100 such contest in a year.
Punjab is a affluent bazaar and it keeps acknowledging new aptitude every now and then. That’s why alike baby artistes administer to get a appearance for Rs 50,000,” says Bhushan Kumar, administrator of T-Series. Punjabi music currently accounts for 40% of his company’s music business. Its artisan Guru Randhawa is authoritative Rs 15 lakh to Rs 20 lakh per show, Kumar tells ET Magazine.
The angle that angle are a criterion of an artiste’s success is flawed. There are abounding old artistes in Punjab who do 50 to 100 shows a year but their videos accept alone 2 lakh views. Abounding new artistes may accept millions of angle on their videos but 10 bodies won’t appear if they do a show” Dinesh Auluck cofounder, Speed Records.
Artistes from several added regions lose out on this acquirement beck because their convenance is abiding in classical music, which in India has a able accent on spirituality. Punjabi artistes, however, abound up advertence music with carousal and accordingly don’t accept any such hang-ups to be the amateur at a party.
In fact, for a lot of Punjabis who acknowledgment from the UK or Canada, bearing a distinct or an anthology acclimated to be the better aerial in their life, says Tarsame Mittal, buyer of a aptitude administration company, who’s empiric this business abound over the aftermost two decades.
It was one such NRI action in the backward ’90s that accepted cardinal for the industry. The aboriginal ’90s were all about Daler Mehndi and Sukhbir — the two singers who took bhangra mainstream. In came Punjab-born, UK-based Jaswinder Singh Bains aka Jazzy B. “Jazzy B’s singing appearance was unique. Alike the non-Punjabi speaking admirers could accept his lyrics,” recalls Mandar Thakur, COO of Times Music, who was administering music and programming at Approach V at the time. (Times Music is a assemblage of The Times Group, which publishes The Economic Times.)
Jazzy B’s acknowledgment to all-embracing studios and soundscapes modernised Punjabi music as we knew it. “People started calling him Modern Chamkila aback he instantly rose to fame,” recalls Aulukh.

Amar Singh Chamkila, additionally accepted as the Elvis of Punjab, was an aweless artisan who had a arch run in the 1980s on the aback of his absolute and raw singing and songwriting. His music is believed to accept been the motive abaft his annihilation by anonymous gunmen in 1988.
With digitisation in, cassettes and CDs accept gone out. YouTube angle took over as the metric of popularity. The agency to accomplish money adapted but the money kept growing. “Wedding budgets broadcast and an artiste’s boilerplate calculation of anniversary shows went up from 20 to 100 aural a decade,” Mittal believability out.
At present, above music labels allegation an estimated anniversary licence fee of Rs 1.5 crore from bounded radio stations and music channels.
The account acquirement they accomplish off YouTube ads on their videos is about in the ambit of Rs 60 lakh to Rs 80 lakh. FICCI-EY’s latest address on India’s media and ball area called the Indian music industry at Rs 1,300 crore. Players appraisal the organised Punjabi music industry to be account Rs 200 crore at the moment, with an added Rs 500 crore advancing from alive shows.
Artistes such as Diljit Dosanjh, Guru Randhawa, Badshah and Raftaar accept transcended their acceptance in the arena to become boilerplate stars — they’re now charging as abundant if not added than what best arch Bollywood singers accomplish from alive events. In the aftermost two years, three of Randhawa’s 20 singles accept been revamped into top Bollywood chartbusters.
New Business Models Punjabi rap, a cast brought to Bollywood by Honey Singh, has been angry into a basic for the bazaar by rappers Badshah and Raftaar. And Dosanjh is both singing for and accomplishing the advance roles in big-banner Bollywood movies.
Just two years ago, Dosanjh was argumentation with Adidas for a brace of sneakers that were out of stock. Today, he is the cast agent for Coca-Cola and Flipkart in Punjab. Adidas sends him its latest archetypal of shoes every ages as a badge of appreciation. “Abhi accepted thoda theek ho gaya hai,” says the Jalandhar-born accompanist who now pulls in an estimated Rs 30 crore in a year in fees and endorsements.
The befalling in the amplitude has accustomed bearing to altered acquirement models. In one bend of Mohali, artist Bunty Bains has set up a aggregation that scouts for talent, trains them, sponsors them — all for a 50% cut in their approaching earnings. “We don’t aloof advance in bearing abundant music. We body abundant artistes.
If an artisan is backed by us, bodies will apperceive they can do shows and authority an admirers besides actuality abundant musicians,” says Bains, whose aggregation BrandB has launched 15 artistes above singing, agreement and administration in the aftermost seven years. In its aboriginal year of operation, BrandB becoming revenues of Rs 1.57 crore, he recalls. Aftermost year, it clocked Rs 16 crore.
Leading labels accept now entered into revenue-sharing deals with artistes, instead of aloof ablution their songs. Singers like Gippy Grewal accept launched their own music label. Accompanist Amrinder Gill’s aggregation handles the assembly and administration for all his songs and movies.
A accepted rapper-singer is ablution a Punjabi approach soon. Every added actuality in Punjab, it can sometimes seem, is authoritative songs. As things get a bit overheated, the industry is additionally reckoning with issues.
The ascent accent of the agenda apple to the industry has sparked allegations of boundless fake-view scams, area artistes and labels pay to prop up their basic popularity. This has aloft questions over the believability of YouTube views.
Artistes like Randhawa are quick to avert theirs: “We upload our songs online and leave. We’re not that abandoned to devise means to accumulate affected views.
A lot of my songs accept fetched hundreds of millions of angle and I’m appreciative to accept represented my country above based on the acceptance of those songs.” To Speed Records’ Auluck, though, angle as a criterion of an artiste’s success has bound meaning. “There are abounding old artistes in Punjab who do 50-100 shows a year but their videos accept alone 200,000 views. If you see a man get out of an big-ticket car and airing into a restaurant followed by an associates of bouncers and managers, bodies in Punjab would anticipate it’s a singer. That’s the angel some of them accept created for the artistes and it’s not necessarily a acceptable one” Bunty Bains, artist and founder, BrandB. Abounding of the new artistes may accept millions of angle on their videos but 10 bodies won’t about-face up if they advertise a show,” he says. Punjabi pop music is additionally generally accused of breeding abandon and adulthood in a accompaniment disturbing with an catching of biologic addiction. This came into aciculate focus in April, aback accompanist Parmish Verma, who rose to burning distinction on the aback of his gansta-themed videos, was attempt at.
“I don’t accusation anyone for this, but the adverse accuracy is that this affectionate of actuality sells the most,” says Dosanjh, apropos to the criticism over accepted themes. In the past, a lot of his songs about women empowerment haven’t accustomed the aforementioned advance as “Panj Taara”, a song about a guy who’s been dumped and is ambidextrous with it by accepting bashed and breaking actuality at a best hotel.
As artistes, we advertise dreams. I don’t appetite kids to dream of a affairs area violence, asinine bubbler and accidental femalebashing is advised cool. I don’t appetite to appearance fun the amiss way” Dilin Nair aka Raftaar rapper “Some of my best allusive songs additionally accept the atomic cardinal of views.” Some changes are afoot, hearteningly. Songwriters like Jaani are creating songs told from a woman’s angle that are actuality able-bodied received. Women artistes such as Jasmine Sandlas, Sunanda Sharma and Jenny Johal are rapidly aggressive the acceptance charts. Rapper Raftaar, in accession to creating pro-women rap songs, is absorption on application amusing media responsibly.
He says the adolescent bearing gets afflicted added by their favourite celeb’s circadian feeds than their songs.

Artistes of Punjabi music industry are on the acme of a beachcomber appropriate now. Abounding newcomers get agitated abroad by the abrupt advance of money and fame.

In contrast, Auluck knows of instances area Gurdas Maan has performed for a couple’s bells and then, 25 years later, been arrive to accomplish for their son’s bells as well. “How abounding artistes from the accepted bearing can command that affectionate of respect?” he asks.
