If you were to ask anyone about Punjabi music, the first person you would hear about is Gurdas Maan. After first gaining attention in 1980 with the song Dil Da Mamla Hai, Gurdas Maan has moved from an unknown Punjabi singer and songwriter, to an international icon who has toured across the Globe.
Gurdas Maan’s 30 year career has been nothing short of spectacular. In this time he has recorded over 27 albums, written over 250 songs and raised the profile of Punjabi music to an international level; making him the most influential and prolific Punjabi singer ever. This great achievement has lead Gurdas Maan to receive numerous honours and awards. In 2009 his album Bootpolishan won “Best International Album” at the UK Asian Music Awards. And in 2010 Gurdas received an honorary degree from the University of Wolverhampton for his outstanding contribution to music.
Following his phenomenal and sell out UK tours in 2005, 2007 and 2009, Gurdas Maan will be returning to the UK in April 2011 for his “Dil Da Mamla Tour”. This tour is set to be his most enthralling and extravagant to date. As part of the tour Gurdas Maan will be performing songs from his wide range of repertoire, including his new album Jogiya.
