Punjabi singer Charanjit Vicky adding a new name in music worldNovember 14th, 2007 - 10:29 am ICT by admin
Ludhiana, Nov 11 (ANI): Though he is new for many music lovers in India, Punjabi folk singer Charanjit Vicky has arrived with a bang here in his native Punjab.
Already a popular name in Canada’s music circuit, the Punjabi youngster boasts of a huge fan-following in Canada where he arrived and settled just a few years ago.
Charanjit is passionate about popularising the culture of Punjab and influencing all age groups with his Punjabi roots. He is excited about his latest music album `Akh Rakh Lai Tere Te’ which is also his debut album in India.
Charanjit said that he was motivated by one of his friends for the music industry. “One of my village friends, who himself was a lyricist, encouraged me into song-writing and I started doing just that.”
It took a year’s hard work to complete this album.
Born and brought up in an ordinary family in village Malpur of Hoshiarpur district, Charanjit shifted to Canada about four years ago to make a career in singing.
Like any newcomer dreaming to make a mark in life, Charanjit also had his struggling phase of life. He approached many accomplished individuals for a break only to get frustrating replies. But he refused to quit. And, the rest is history.
Charanjit says, “I met a few of singers to present my lyrics, but was ignored. Since then I have never gone to any artist. I continued writing and was determined to sing those lyrics myself. Hence, I turned to singing and started practicing.”
Having born and brought in Punjab, it helps Charanjit to script folk songs in Punjabi language.
He says: “There is a tremendous competition in singing. But I am trying my best to work for the promotion of the Punjabi language to sing good songs and make good videos. My sincere efforts would be to sing pure Punjabi folk that a family can listen together.”
Launched by the popular lyricist Shamsher Sandhu of Punjab, Charanjit with his recently released music video album is looking forward to a bright career in singing in India.
Charanjit, as a smart youngster, is presently keeping an eye on the latest trends in the industry and the rhythm of the young-at-heart around the world. (ANI)
