CULTURE

Punjabi female singer a rarity: Satti
Ludhiana September 1
“I feel Punjabi female singers are disappearing these days. Singers like Surinder Kaur had created a niche for herself, but nobody had tried to come to that level after her. Keeping this in mind, I put in sincere efforts to bring the music album ‘Peeng’ recently, which has been well received by Punjabis”, these views were expressed by anchor and actor Satinder Satti here today. She was the chief guest of the freshers’ party at Guru Nanak Khalsa College for Women here.Talking to Ludhiana Tribune, she said being a Punjabi artist she always wanted to promote the culture, traditions and music of Punjab. She added that her next album would be a mixture of Sufism with kafis of Bulle Shah as this form of music was vanishing.
