Bangra music, which is famous in the Asian sub-continents, has an equally high influence in the west. Nindy Kaur, is the UK born pop singer who has followed this music genre all her life. Bangra has a vital role in her life and has toured many places worldwide for various stage shows. Kaur is associated with RDB (Rhythm Dhol Bass) team and is married to one of the lead vocalist Manjeet. She began her career as a singer from the age of 10 and her vivacious journey is on.
1. Born and raised in the UK. How did you develop a taste in Bhangra and Indian rhythms?
Being brought up around the music industry at home, I have always enjoyed listening to Bhangra and Indian rhythms from a young age, as the music was always blasting through my household. Further to that, my husband (Manj from RDB) is in the music industry and so he has heavily influenced my love for Bhangra as I got into adulthood.
2. How do you rate yourself as a singer?
Honestly, I never thought I could sing originally. I was like everyone else; a superstar singer in my car and in my shower. But my husband Manj really liked my voice and kept insisting that I go into the studio. He has really been the backbone of my music, confidence, voice and support.
3. “Save The World” marks your first collaboration outside the RDB camp. What made you take the step to solo stardom?
Actually, Culture Shock (producers of the track) approached me. We have always been good friends, and I’ve always been a fan of their music. So they approached me one day and said ‘How would you feel if we did a track together’, I said ‘you know what, I really wouldn’t mind…should be good!’ so we went into the studio where Manj, Baba, Lomatic, Sunny and I were messing around and put this and that together, and the next thing you know in the span of two hours ‘Save The World’ was made.
4. It is obvious that Bhangra music would be the prime influence in shaping your future as a singer. Then why do you seek to mould your music from a bit of Pop and Rock?
The music industry is always changing and especially in this day and age, there’s so much more variety. It’s about being creative and understanding the various genres and creating something more edgy. Versatility is something that makes a singer strong and unique. You should be able to produce, write and sing music that has style.
5. Millions of music lovers around the world admire you as a singer, naturally the expectations on you are high. What are your future projects?
Expectations are a natural way of thinking in every individual’s life and of course expectations do tend to be high for those in the spotlight. But I think if I am just doing what I love, the best that I can try to do it, then it will transpire in my music for my fans. We have many more collaborations and future projects ahead of us, you just have to wait and see what we have to offer.
