Check out the indie artists bringing new themes and tunes to Punjabi music

Punjabi music has increasingly vibrant independent Punjabi pop scene, with lyrics, music and videos different from the mainstream. Indian artists and artists from the diaspora are singing of identity, brotherly love, belonging, equal rights for races, genders and sexual minorities. Their songs include takes on fake news, racism, capitalism, the perils of unbridled urbanisation. Songs are being sung in dialects such as Puadhi (generally used to indicate a buffoon in Punjabi films and TV shows). Musical styles draw on kirtans and folk traditions as well as jazz, reggae, fado, alt-rock, electro-pop, punk rock and boom bap. Take a look at some of the works. #punjabi #punjabimusic #music #india
