Two weeks ago Balli Kalsi stated on his Facebook page that a song he was working on a few years ago had been used by Mankirt Aulakh. Neither Balli or the writer had been credited for the song. Balli stated he was prepared to take the issue further unless something was done.
Balli decided to release the song he was working on “Original Brotherhood” so we could decide for ourselves.
Both the songs are here for you to listen too, for us: The songs are very different, they may well be some similarities but that is not a new thing in Punjabi music, it has gone on since the folk music days. Taking this to court could be challenging, but hey, what do you guys think?
