Closing your eyes and listening, you would think D-Sarb is around forty years old, perhaps older, with years of vocal training and singing experience under his belt. However, opening your eyes to a young baby faced 17-year-old comes as something as a shock, yet it’s impressive to say the least. D-Sarb is D-Boys latest addition as the Urban Desi music producer snapped the talented youth up to record label Beatcircle just last year. After hearing him out it’s no shock to find that the producer regards him as his best work to date.
Since then, D-Sarb has already proved himself to be both unique and highly skilled in this competitive industry. So what makes him stand out from the rest? It comes as a surprise that the singer was born and raised in Oxford as he seems to have such strong Punjabi vocal affiliations. Growing up and listening to artists such as Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Master Saleem we can appreciate the impact of having an awareness and understanding of a range of genres from different cultures, not just sticking to the mainstream that’s so often handed to us on a plate in the UK. It is this what has clearly worked for D-Sarb as he now has an album to show for it. Music ‘n’ Me is what he regards as his best work to date and it seems with such a huge following and so many fans already, many people will be in agreement.
What he arguably lacks in experience, he makes up in his passion and natural vocal flare. Comfortable playing the guitar while singing, he boasts an impressive musical ability. This is something very rare today as so many musicians have to rely on their band or their beat to help them get the crowd going. Gandlan Tor Diye Mutyare is just one of D-Sarb’s favourites to sing and it seems he’s not the only one who has it as their preference. His video of him singing the song was uploaded to Youtube earlier this month but has already brought in almost one thousand views! Keep an eye out for D-Sarb because the next ten years seem to have a lot in store for the young talent.
