BritAsia TV caught up with Punjabi lyricist Rav Hanjra to talk about his career, working with Diljit Dosanjh and what we can expect from him in the future.
Rav is a lyricist and worked on Diljit Dosanjh’s latest album, ‘Con.Fi.Den.Tial’.
He recalls that he always loved music in his childhood, with the main passion for it coming in 8th grade in India. He states his inspiration as Gurdaas Mann, who was also a favourite of his father.
Recognising the commercial focus of the music industry in Punjab, he told us that he personally enjoys writing on real, meaningful topics though discussing serious topics might be less popular with audiences!
He wrote some of the songs on Diljit’s album before knowing he would be collborating with the hit Punjabi singer. When it was all confirmed, he was extremely excited about this opportunity, to be working with Diljit and Snappy, with whom he collaborates regularly.
He told us that he enjoys being part of the Punjabi music industry as it supports upcoming talent, recognising potential and success. Rav told us that he hopes to make good music and continue to make his parents happy and proud. Over huge commercial success, Rav hopes that he will be able to consistently continue to do good work.
