Gurman Dhoot is a 18 year old music producer from Brampton, Canada. It’s rare to hear about many bhangra music producers hailing from Canada, let alone a 18 year old one. However, don’t let this mislead you into doubting his abilities as a producer.
Gurman started off his musical expedition as a Dj at the age of 12. At the age of 16 he started producing his own beats, over time learning how to play keys and chords. Currently Gurman is learning how to play the harmonium, trying to gain more musical knowledge to enhance his craft. His influences include Panjabi Mc, Bally Jagpal, and Bhota Jagpal.
Although the full song will release on Jan 16 2009, make sure you listen to the promo to Gurman Dhoot’s debut single - Suteh Sher featuring the proper desi vocals of Sarbjit Saab.
After listening to the promo, decide for yourself, is Gurman Dhoot just another producer in this ailing industry or does this 18 year old have the potential to breath some life into Canadian bhangra?
