Everyone’s a rockstar in Mohali, the city at the heart of a Punjabi music boom

There’s dancing on the streets, recording in the bylanes, music videos being shot in parks. New songs are released on streaming apps every day. It’s a struggler ecosystem, but imbued with a lot more hope than, say, LA or Mumbai.
The culture in Mohali is encouraging, says Gurnazar Chattha, at centre above. Here, the singer and lyricist shoots his latest video, for a song called ‘Kudi kudi’, at an uncle’s bungalow. Local music labels release as many as 30 songs online a day. The music itself costs very little to produce and distribute, and within the formula — catchy beat, young dancers, lyrics about alcohol / partying / romance / heartbreak — some returns are almost guaranteed.(Anil Dayal / HT Photo)
