Noted Punjabi folk singer Lachi Bawa passed away at a hospital in Ludhiana last night after battling a prolonged illness. Lachi (46) was the eldest of three daughters of legendary Punjabi folk singer Gurmeet Bawa.
The persons close to the family revealed that she was undergoing treatment for cancer for the last five months. A large number of personalities from art and literary circles attended her cremation.
Lachi, along with her sister, was running a music academy. Her husband had passed away earlier. She is survived by her daughter and son. Gurmeet Bawa, along with her husband Kirpal Bawa (also a folk singer) and other family members, performed the last rites.

Actor and singer Gurshabad has also expressed shock. He said, “We grew up listening to the songs of Gurmit, Lachi and Glori Bawa. It is shocking when you see such a good folk singer dying at such an early age.” — TNS
