Some interesting points being raised about some of these singers and at the performances. But something that everyone needs to appreciate and respect in this day and age is that these guys were able to and have the 'balls' to sing live with real musicians. All you see on gig posters & melas these days is 'Live PA' - where is the talent in singing over a CD and prancing around on a stage shouting 'put your hands in the air!!'?

The other thing to respect is that they have stuck to what they believe in which is live music and didn't follow the crowd and degrade themselves by going the 'PA' route - which would have been an easy thing for them to do.

I would love to see The Sahotas do a live session. That would be immense!!

You simply don't know what pure bhangra music is, how can you say live isn't good, so your one of these low life's boring people who enjoy dj music and not appreciate what real musicians do

Azaad in my view were the best

Once again you come on here and oppose my views...thats fair enough, but maybe you should try to make sense of what i say instead of cherry picking...i said the vocals of a lot of the artists in this video were 'cringe-worthy, ' at no point did i say i dont like live singers...i dont want to turn this into another long debate with you as you seem to have a one sided 'im right, your wrong' approach...ther e is such a thing as a compromise, and there is also such a thing as different tastes in music

Enjoy the rest of your day.

@ Weeman, what your saying is true...i skipped about 90% of the above video because the live vocals were so cringeworthy... did bring back some good memorys though.
A lot of these 80's punjabi singers were just guys who would get together at the pub or working mens club and sing...which lead them to sing at gatherings etc...nobody envisaged turning it into a career...and at that time nobody cared how they sounded because it was just a blessing to be able to hear live punjabi music.
A lot of these guys still say it was a hobby and dont claim to be vocalists...how ever some of them have gotten a bit full of themselves and think they can become ustaads now! (mentioning no names) lol

I'm thankful that these guys brought bhangra music/culture to UK.

However - and no disrespect intended - this is why the UK industry got weak singers. Even though lot of the old-skool stars had some vocal ability, it was still flat and not what you would call real singing.

All the above "legends" in the video are 99,9% flat singers. For those who don't know what it means to sing "flat", please google it before taking me down as a "hater" or something :-)

Well back to my point. Since the old skool UK-bhangra scene didn't have enough proper singers and too many flat singers, the reflection of that image still prevails today. Too many singers who can't sing or won't learn. Others just learned from their parents or those "legends" mentioned above.

Compared to the culture in punjab you can clearly see the difference. Charmkila, Gurdas Man, Manak, Durga, Sabar Koti etc. and coincidentally the level is higher by far in punjab.

Avtar was ok though
