The legend that is Amar Singh Chamkila was born as Dunni Ram on July 21, 1960 in the village of Dugri near Ludhiana, Punjab. Today would have been his 58th birthday, and even though his death was now over 30 years ago, he still inspires singers today, and will do so for generations to come.
Rather than us just pick Chamkila classics to have on a playlist for his birthday, we at Daily Ent. Xpress thought we would put together a playlist of singers who have mentioned the legend that is Chamkila in songs instead. Big shout out to Moneyspinner for helping us compile the list.
Jazzy B, a legend himself starts of the playlist, which features a list of Punjabi music superstars and some lesser known artists, which highlights how popular Chamkila was/is, he touched Punjabi music fans hearts and will do so for many years to come.
