About B. Praak

From childhood, B. Praak aspired to become a singer, but his father—famed Punjabi composer Varinder Bachan—wanted him to become a music director instead. ∙ He has a tattoo of a Shure Model 55 microphone on his right arm. ∙ His influences include Slumdog Millionaire composer A. R. Rahman and Indian-Canadian Punjabi singer-songwriter Jazzy B. ∙ In 2012, Praak met his longtime collaborator, Janni, when the Punjabi lyricist approached him to compose music for an Australian film project that was never completed. ∙ Praak’s song “Naah” earned him a 2018 PTC Punjabi Music Award—the Punjabi equivalent of a Grammy—for Best Music Director for a Single. ∙ His song “Teri Mitti” was featured in the award-winning 2019 Indian epic Kesari.
