For a man who competes in the tutak tutak segment of music, Sukhbir manages to takes himself pretty seriously. Still, all music is music, especially if you've never heard any rock lyrics and think Daler Mehndi must be taking 3 months to pen each song. And so here's your own night.

Better known as the Prince of Bhangra, Sukhbir has created his very own musical genre by breaking down musical barriers and bringing together diverse sounds and instruments. He has fused traditional Bhangra with Western music, including dance, reggae, techno and rave.

Born in 1969 in Punjab, Sukhbir has lived most of his life in Nairobi, Kenya, where he moved when he was three. His father being a priest, Sukhbir was brought up listening to bhajans and would play them back to his father using a harmonium.

Encouraged by his musical family, Sukhbir experimented with his musical talent, and soon formed his own group of 10 musicians and singers, with himself on the keyboards and performing backing vocals. In late '91, Sukhbir went solo, and performed a one-man show in Kenya. Familiar with every instrument used in his band, he used his versatility to create a sound that included different tracks to create the effect of a full band.

His debut album New Stylee was a combination of Sukhbir's style and experimentation with new sounds. This was followed by the release of two albums Hai Energy and Gal Ban Gayee, which, though in the bhangra mode, have a blend of reggae, rave and techno music. His latest album, a compilation called Prince of Bhanghra Greatest Hits Volume 1, has some of his best tracks, and includes chartbusters such as Sauda Khara Khara, Gal Ban Gayee, Punjabi Munde and Balle Balle.

Sukhbir can sing in nine languages including Hindi, English, Swahili and Portuguese! And he has performed in thirteen countries including Uganda, United Kingdom, Seychelles, India, Mauritius and UAE. In India, he has played with musicians like Pankaj Udhas, Sapna Mukherjee, Sudesh Bhosle and Vinod Rathod. He has also produced a video for a Portuguese song, with Indian actress Neelam.

Sukhbir has a musical personality all of his own, which includes a combination of language, instruments, influences and imagination. He is going to perform this evening jointly with DJ Akbar Sami at the ethnic Rajasthani theme dhaba - Dhola-Ri-Dhani.
