After the success of Dil Dhak Dhak Sohniye, Tarli Digital presents fans with a second single Mittran De Naa Karde taken from his 4th studio album DigiTaal. Out on the 4th July, it’s a slab of infectious, upbeat, and straight down the line bhangra, complete with the dulcet tones of Dalvinder Singh and accompanied by the inimitable Johnny Kalsi with the internationally renowned Dhol Foundation.
The uplifting bhangra single plays homage to Tarli’s love of Panjabi music, bhangra and culture. Lyrically by Happy Bains, (‘Dhol Jageero Dah’ by PMC, ‘Dang Ditha Akhian Ne’ by Sahotas) this up-tempo party and dance inducing new single, is a sure fire traditional throwback and is out in perfect time for the summer season.
Having been asked to recently speak on a panel alongside Harry Matharu and Sarbjit Cheema about ‘Global Bhangra’ at Vancouver’s ‘VIBC / HSBC City Of Bhangra Festival’, Tarli’s impressive encyclopaedic knowledge of bhangra music saw his opinion pertaining to the growth of the industry and celebrating its success.
Tarli explains, "Being asked to attend and participate at the VIBC City of Bhangra festival in Vancouver was a career highlight, the opportunity to share the stage with Bhangra artists and teams from across the globe was an inspiring experience. It’s evident that Bhangra is finally being identified as an independent genre and that non Asians are appreciating the cultural values it portrays, whilst integrating and merging with other cosmopolitan genres such as HipHop RnB and Dance music."
‘MDNK’ is taken from the inventively titled forthcoming #DigiTaal which is presented by Organised Rhyme. The new album packs 11 immersive tracks which when put side-by-side, react in a way that stirs the senses and makes for an eclectic listening experience. Expect persuasive percussion, svelte string pieces and heady rhythms led by catchy compositions, which are countered delicately by vivid lyrical content and an inspired presence of mind to make #DigiTaal a remarkably well-rounded album accommodating for many an ear.
Out on the 20th July #DigiTaal features amongst others, the legend that is Rahat Fateh Ali Khan in Panjabi, Dalvinder Singh, Des-C , Balwinder Safri, Angrej Ali, Nishawn Bhullar and others.
