Born and raised in Punjab, India, Malkit Singh celebrates the ornate and high-energy stylings of Bhangra — music that’s heavily influenced by traditional Punjabi culture, but also infuses elements of Western pop. He was propelled to the international stage in 2002 after his music was featured in the hit film Bend It Like Beckham, and has since proven his mastery of the genre. Singh’s intricately layered songs are titillating, flush with hypnotic drum thumps, vibrant rattles, and vocals that rise and fall beautifully with exceptional power, control, and fluidity.
