Punjabi Music has hit the headlines in recent times, but the music behind the headlines, the real meat of the story, so to speak, is that which is born in the fields of Punjab.
Ballads of warriors like Jagga, countless stories of eternal love like Heer-Ranjha, Sohni-Mahiwal, Sassi-Punnu, Sahiba-Mirza, traditional songs like the challa, sounds of the instruments, the tumba, been, sarangi... the list goes on.
This music has all the dynamism, drama and verve that gives Punjabi music the status it has achieved today.
These recordings have been made all over Punjab, next to wells, under trees, in fields and in people's homes, in the attempt to capture their true flavour.
We hope you enjoy listening to them as much as we, the Beat of India team enjoyed making them available to you.
