and Gippy Grewal Live In Concert in LA
Los Angeles, May 07, 2008
Gary Singh/Surinder Mehta
The concert started at 8p.m. on Friday, May 02, 2008
at Diamond Palace, Diamond Bar, (near Los Angeles). It began with
a blood-curdling scream; a scream so piercing and primal that it
could mean only one thing:
"If you have heard of "Majhe Diye Mombatiya"
“Do Gallan” and “Mithey Ganney” you know
who I am talking about. Balkar Sidhu needs no introduction. His
album: contained songs like Jaan, Sharabi Munde, Loung Tawitarian
were played on the India's every DJ's at every marriage and party.
"Oh. My. God,"
Once the show began, however, so did the magic. The
lights dimmed, a mix of blaring music, and screaming graphics transformed
the simple space into a feast for the senses.
Gippy grewal with the big voice makes his GREAT PERFORMANCES
debut. Gippy grewal, best recent punjabi singer, has been recording
some great tracks. Gippy took the industry by storm with hits such
as "Mere Yaar Ne", "Akh Larh Gayi", "Manja"
and Phulkari which proved a huge hit between 2004-2005. Gippy Grewal's
songs are still played at partiez today. He came off another hugely
successful track called "Gabroo" a duet with his close
friend Yudhvir Manak. Its time for Gippy to take the Asian music
industry by storm. Gippy is back on the scene with the release of
his brand new album titled "Chandi De Challe". Much like
Gippy himself his songs are a union of the best of Old Skool &
New Skool Bhangra with the full support from his elder brother "sippy
Grewal." Gippy Grewal released his first album Chakk-Ley (Anand
Audio) in 1999, at the age of 17. Later he has released hit album

their warmth and charm ruling the evening.
