Punjabi Essentials

For a primer on the lively, dhol-drenched music of Punjab and its diaspora, look no further. In this hand-picked playlist, our editors select a range of artists whose styles span authentic village folk and the hit party anthems filling dance floors from Delhi to London. Gurdas Maan's soaring traditional vocals capture the regret and longing of a man watching his lover storming out after a fight, while UK-raised Bally Sagoo and the Scottish bhangra duo Tigerstyle deliver high-energy bangers shot through with hip-hop rhymes and synths.
