Miss India Scotland 2012 and niece of superstar Malkit Singh MBE, Ramee isn’t content in creating ripples; she’s intent on causing a storm across the British Asian music scene with ‘Peengh’!
Ramee, Balle Balles her way down the South Asian catwalk of music with her solo debut single. Peengh means swing in Punjabi and was written by her father and produced by none-other than Mumzy Stranger. Mumzy also takes credit for the current summer banger, ‘Ghetto Refix’ which also features Ramee as part of the Stranger Family (SF). He has also produced hits for Junai Kaden and Tasha Tah (also part of the SF collective).
Mumzy Stranger describes Peengh in his own inimitable style as: “Chopped up Hip Hop Bhangra with synth RnB chords”! It also features the soothing RnB tones of Char Avell (another SF member and Mumzy Stranger discovery). The song takes you dreamily into an unashamedly clichéd Bollywood scene of a Punjabi girl on a tree swing, her long plait swinging with her and her Salwar Kameez billowing in the wind. As she swings she dreams of being swept away by a handsome suitor and hey presto there he stands before her and as their gazes meet she loses all control and falls off the swing. Of course in the real world the video of the song is nothing like this and depicts Glaswegian born Ramee singing and dancing at her old school with her real old school friends and not a swing in sight!
‘Peengh’ will be available on iTunes from 28th June 2012 and all digital stores.
