Leicester based musical collective, DEA (Dhol Enforcement Agency), are back with a brand new track, Kushi which is sang by Anwar Pali and produced by DEA and Nin Matharu - watch the video here.
The DEA Dhol Team, which includes Indi Soor ( Founder) on Algozey along with 10 Dhol Players/Instrumentalists including Tumbi, harmonium, live singing/dancing, beatbox and more; have taken over the UK as one of the finest live Dhol teams today.
They have not only taken over all the wedding stages across the UK, but have also performed at the Queens 60th Jubilee Parade in Leicester where Her Majesty The Queen, Prince Phillip and Kate Middleton were present, Tour De France, Cortege for King Richard 3rd Leicester and The London Olympics Parade amongst other prestigious events. The DEA have represented Punjabi Culture and music across the UK with their unique skills and talent and they continue to do that globally with more international events where they are presenting folk Punjabi music.
Kushi, sang by Anwar Pali who resides from Khanna in Punjab, is mostly known for his romantic love songs and religious songs. However, he has now stepped out for the first time for an international collaboration with midlands based DEA. Anwar was approached by the DEA team for a fresh new sound and Indi Soor, founder of DEA said Anwars voice was what they needed for this track. He said, "Anwar is a very talented singer and was recommended by a few of the lads in the team. He's new, fresh and very talented, we directed the whole project from UK while Anwar recorded vocals live in Punjab".
The song is written by Harman Randhawa, who is born and raised in UK and has been a part of the DEA Dhol Team for 8 years. This is the first track for Harman as a writer and he hopes to write for other artists and singers in the future. He's been one of the core team members in DEA as a Dhol player.
Kushi which is a total Punjabi dance number is one that will get all the family together and an anthem that can be enjoyed by everybody at any wedding, party or happy occasion.
