Hari & Sukhmani

Singh and Malik met in November 2008, and discovered a shared interest in folk music. They formed a band in 2009, producing 10 songs and getting their first gig in “a couple of weeks”. Both Singh and Malik sing, while the former also works as a producer and operates the console during live performances. Their songs fuse Punjabi folk music and electronic music, and draw from the poetry of Sufi saints such as Bulle Shah, Baba Farid, Kabir, and Shah Hussain. The compositions have been noted for making the Sufi poets’ work accessible to today’s audiences. In a 2013 interview in The Hindu, Malik explained their choice of genre, “The idea was to do old folk songs, because the new generation doesn’t hear them. And Hari wanted to go into a chill-out zone with it.”

The duo perform in Punjabi, Hindi or English. Their style is minimal in contrast to the usual modern renditions, and Singh explained in an interview: “Bhangra is a very new thing. Traditional folk has never been hardcore; it is very easy going, you never hear big dhols. The idea was to keep that vibe.”Hari and Sukhmani produced the folk song Kangi Bawan for director Deepa Mehta‘s 2008 film Heaven on Earth. In 2016, they collaborated with the Pakistani rock band Noori for the song Yaariyan. In 2019, they collaborated with the Australian band The Coconut Kids on the song Baagey, a bilingual reinterpretation of Baage Vich Aaya Karo, a traditional Punjabi love song.
