Kuala Lumpur, Apr 2 (ANI): Malaysia Prime Minister Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak’s wife Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor has launched a new music album by a Malaysian bhangra band.

Goldkartz, which consists of bhangra duo Manjit Singh and Sukhjit Gill, released ‘24 Karaatz’.

They made their debut in the Urban Bhangra music scene in 2008 with their first album ‘Loaded’.

Goldkartz released their sophomore album simultaneously in Malaysia, India, Britain, Europe, Canada and the United States on April 1.

In her speech, Rosmah said she was pleased with the efforts put in by Goldkartz to further popularise bhangra music at both local and international scenes.

“This will help pave the way for other Malaysian artistes to strive harder to make it big in the international music arena,” the Star Online quoted her as saying.

“Goldkartz’s effort truly manifested the spirit of Malaysia Boleh, where everyone can succeed provided they work hard and are committed to achieving success,” she said.

Rosmah added that music transcends barriers, skin colour and creed and connects all of us. (ANI)
