Daler Mehndi

He burst onto the Indian music scene in 1996 with the superhit Bolo Ta Ra Ra which became the hottest selling non-film album of all times; this was followed in 1999 by Tunak Tunak Tun which has become an internet phenomenon, particularly with the World of Warcraft communities.

His fierce, electric stage performances have made him the most sought-after (and most expensive) Indian performer.

Above all, he is, arguably, the most original bhangra songwriter of his generation. Silk Road has produced his forthcoming album Thieves & Liars which promises to be a ground-breaking bhangra-meets-punk-rock and his best in years.

The singles “Two Eyes (Do Naina)” and “Thieves & Liars” have been released on iTunes.
