After many years of creating music behind the scenes, producing duo Gin and Rees release their debut single ‘Sanu Teh Changa’.
Featuring the beautiful lyrics of the musical genius Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Gin and Rees have not only managed to pay homage to the maestro of qaawal, but have managed to find a vocalist that truly does justice to the Ustad.
The track, will be released on the 23rd August features the soulful vocals of India based singer Aslam Ali, whose voice so closely resembles the mighty Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Listeners will not only be amazed, but emotionally touched by memories of the musical giant. Gin who first heard Aslam sing on a trip to India says:
“The hairs literally stood up on the back of my neck. I could not believe that anyone could have a voice that even came close to my hero. But Aslam is incredible and I knew that we had to work with him.”
Gin and Rees, who are not only co-producers but also brothers, have grown up in the music industry, with Gin mastering Indian percussion (Dhol, Dholak and Tabla) and melody from a young age. Rees also fell in love with Bhangra music and dance; the brothers have been running the now famous VP Entertainments. The dance troupe which made it’s mark with a scintillating Bhangra performance at London 2012’s closing ceremony.
However, creating music is in their blood and ‘Sanu Teh Changa’, shows off their musical vision and talents. With a beautiful melody that perfectly complements the heart-wrenching lyrics, this track will, without doubt, melt and steal hearts.
