"Massive credit to the whole team for turning a classic into something hot and current."
‘Kurti Mal Mal Di’ is the fun, brand new, hit single by the music superstars Jaz Dhami and Kanika Kapoor.
Their electrifying track, which is sure to have dancefloors rocking, recreates the Punjabi classic by Mohammad Sadiq and Ranjit Kaur.
With Shortie and the Scottish DJ duo, Tigerstyle, also involved, ‘Kurti Mal Mal Di’ is a truly massive collaboration.
Ravi thinks so too, he says: “Tigerstyle, Shortie, Jaz Dhami and Kanika Kapoor is a great combination. ‘Kurti Mal Mal Di’ is a banger.”
It’s been a sensational career for Jaz Dhami since he spoke exclusively to DESIblitz back in 2010. And here’s everything you need to know about his huge pop and folk fusion track.
But does it beat the original? Check out the music video to ‘Kurti Mal Mal Di’ by Jaz Dhami and Kanika Kapoor below to find out.
Jaz Dhami and Kanika Kapoor – ‘Kurti Mal Mal Di’
‘Kurti Mal Mal Di’ is the second release from Jaz Dhami’s latest album, Pieces of Me.
But after a successful release, it looks as though the track could do even better than ‘Oye Hoye Oye Hoye’.
Jaz Dhami’s collaboration with Kanika is his latest super-collab after also coming together with PBN for ‘Bhangra Machine’ in 2016. He also worked with Sneakbo, Ikka, and Steel Banglez for his urban track, ‘Pasina’.
Dhami’s latest song begins with a short snippet from the original track before teleporting itself into 2017. And by recreating ‘Kurti Mal Mal Di’, that is exactly what Jaz Dhami and Kanika Kapoor have done.
Their song seamlessly unites two very different eras of music. With the original version coming out around 50 years ago, Jaz and Kanika have given it a proper revival.
Kavita says: “I’ve got to give massive credit to the whole team for turning a classic into something hot and current.”
With the music producers, Tigerstyle, merging the traditional lyrics with a catchy beat, the track is sure to have you bouncing along.
Shortie further adds to the party vibes. He is back alongside Kanika after the duo last worked together on ‘Jugni Ji’.
