Some extremely sad news broke over the weekend that dhol and dholki player Sital Singh (brother of Tubsy “wheres the dholki”) had passed away.
Sital Singh, may not be a name that will jump out at you straight away, but it is his dholki loop that has to be one of the most used loops in Bhangra music today. The loop is from AS Kang’s “Gidhan De Rani” which has been sampled and re-created by producers across the globe for decades now.
A request from Sital Singh’s brother is below via his Facebook page is, asking for people to help support the British Heart Foundation, an organisation whose research saw them spend an extra 3 years with their brother.
From everyone here at Daily Ent. Xpress – a huge salute to you Sital Singh, you will live on in Bhangra music forever.
