March 8th marks one of the saddest days in calender of Punjabi music, it was the day that we lost Amar Singh Chamkila and Amarjot to a cold blooded murder. bUT, even though his death was now over 31 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 today, 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.
31 years on:
His name is mentioned in more songs than everyone else out together..
His songs are the most covered…
His melodies are the most copied…
His style is the most copied…
100% King of Panjabi Folk! #Chamkila
