Jaswinder Singh Bains better known to his fans as “Jazzy B” was born in Nawanshahr, Punjab, India on April 01, 1975. Having seen Kuldeep Manak at the age of 4, he knew he wanted to become a singer right then. At the age of 5 he and his family immigrated to Vancouver, BC and eventually settled in the city of Surrey. This is where Jazzy B’s love of Punjabi music began, he developed his musical prowess through folk and bhangra styles of Punjabi music. All the while having the new up and coming genre at the time, hip hop greatly influenced the rhythm and flow of his music. Jazzy B finished high school at Princess Margaret Secondary School where he then went onto to release his debut album “Ghugian Da Jorra” in 1993 and has not looked back since!
He made the decision to move to England to further pursue his musical dreams in 1994, where he went onto earn the moniker “The Crown Prince of Bhangra!” Jazzy B went on to release chart toppers like Folk ‘N Funky in 1995, All Eyez on Me in 1999, Oh Keri in 2001, Tera Roop in 2002, Romeo in 2004, Rambo in 2008, Maharajas in 2011, and Folk ‘N Funky 2 in 2017!

Jazzy B also has the prestigious honour of being the first Canadian of South Asian descent to be inducted into the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame in 2016. Throughout Jazzy B’s career on many occasions especially early on he has been asked by the media why he has such a passion for Punjabi folk and bhangra music despite having a sense of fashion that did not fit the typical desi mould. Jazzy B’s response has been consistent, he wanted the young kids that look up to him, to love and embrace their Punjabi culture through his music. He said he grew up like any Canadian kid playing and watching hockey, basketball, soccer, and football with his friends. To this day, Jazzy B goes back to Surrey and plays street hockey with his family and friends. Like many of the kids growing up in Canada wearing traditional Indian clothing was not what they did but that should not mean that they cannot love their Punjab roots. Dubbed by The New York Times as the “Michael Jackson of India,” Jazzy B has had a lasting impact on his fans through the 1990’s and 2000’s which will help his music live on forever.
Harjit Harman is a Punjabi Folk & Pop singer, who in just a few years has become one of today’s premier singers. He’s done it in a bit of a different way, on the merits of his creative abilities, perseverance and a healthy, homegrown perspective, establishing himself as a magnetic, new voice in Punjabi music. Harjit Harman adds a new milestone to his musical journey with every new album.
Harjit Harman broke through in 1999, with the release of his debut album “Kuri Chiraan Ton Vichhari”, followed by “Zanjeeri” and “Tere Pain Bhulekhe” in 2002. In 2004 “Punjebaan” album was released which awakened Punjabi music fans across the globe to a charismatic, vibrant young artist who connected with audiences in a way other contemporary singers did not. Selling record number of copies and earning international recognition as Punjabi Folk & Pop singer, Harman set a trendy combination of traditional folk and pop music with thoughtful lyrics by S. Pargat Singh who is his producer and writer since the very beginning.
Harjit Harman was born in village Doda near Nabha, Distt. Patiala, Punjab in India. He studied at Akaal Degree College Mastuana Sahib (Sangrur) in Punjab, India. There he met S. Pargat Singh. Meeting Pargat Singh was a turning point of Harjit Harman’s life as S. Pargat Singh found the artist in Harjit Harman when he heard Harjit Harman’s melodious voice in college functions. He decided to launch Harjit Harman in a professional manner and in 1999 Harjit Harman’s first album was released.
Hence, Harjit Harman’s first album got an average response from audience, his first hit song was “302 Banju” but it wasn’t just the numbers that confirmed Harman’s popularity. The song, “Surma Na Payi Mutiare", «Ve Mein Kattadi Trinjhana Ch Charkha», «Tere Pain Bhulekhe» and many more songs were big hits. The album Panjebaan (2004) brought huge success to Harjit Harman’s musical career. Songs from Panjebaan album has become folk of Punjab. The song “Mittran Da Naa Chalde” created a storm in the Punjabi music industry. All the songs from Punjebaan were chartbusters. The songs from Panjebaan were played in every celebration/party. Even today also “Mittraan Da Naa Chalde” song is a must play in every DJ and marriage party. He brought another storm like none other when he came out with Jatti in 2014.

Harjit Harman has toured all over the world including America, England, Australia, Italy, Poland, Norway, New Zealand, France etc. tirelessly, selling out to bigger and bigger audiences every time around.
Harjit Harman has a collection of impassioned, emotionally resonant songs about the joys and rigors of love and life to his credit. The temptation for anyone who has experienced early success is to mimic that formula for success. But in recording his every next album, Harjit Harman resisted. Instead, he made the bold creative choice to give the album a decidedly more different from his past album, which was rendered with the help of famed producer-writer, Pargat Singh. Harjit Harman went on to produce Kuri Chiran To Vichhari in 1999, Zanjeeri in 2002, Tere Pain Bhulekhe in 2004, Panjebaan in 2004, Singh Soormae in 2005, Mundri in 2007, Hoor in 2009, Shaan-E-Qaum in 2011 and Jhanjar in 2012.
