Contemporary Indian Folk Music

Harpreet is a versatile artiste, who sings original musical compositions in Hindi, as well as, in regional Indian languages and dialects such as Punjabi, Bengali, Assamese, Rajasthani and Haryanvi. He is known for his rich sonorous voice and a vivid, light classical style of singing. His creative talent fuses both the modern and traditional when he composes tunes to his own lyrics and to classical poetry that he loves.

With a powerful stage presence, he is best known for creating musical scores for epic works of humanist poets like Kabir and Bulleh Shah. Credited for taking celebrated poets to the masses, Harpreet has also composed popular tunes to words of poets such as Pash (Avtar Singh Sandhu), Faiz Ahmad Faiz and Nirala (Suryakant Tripathi). His rhythmic blend of soulful poetry to the pulsating sounds of guitar and percussion are at once unique and innovative, familiar and foreign. On his musical journey with poetry, he has delivered a TEDx talk in Jaipur in 2016. He has also composed lyrics for films.
