Mandev Sidhu, a Malaysian based bhangra artist who graduated as a pilot, has just released his debut single ‘Dil Tere’.
The 31-year old bank officer used to sing kirtan (Sikh devotional songs) and play the table and the harmonium at gurdwaras.
Mandev began singing Punjabi songs at private functions and later took vocal training under the tutelage of music composer and director Arvinder Rai.
“My singing style is mostly influenced by Jassi Sidhu and Manj Musik,” Mandev told Asia Samachar.
In the single released on Youtube, Mandev collaborates with Bollywood playback singer Shalmali Kholgade, who sang Balam Pichkari and Baby Ko Bass Pasand Hai Fame.
The music was composed by Arvinder while the lyrics were penned by Kulwant Khambra. The female vocal was dubbed in Mumbai and the music video was shot in Malaysia.
