H-Dhami - Har Gabroo Music Video
H (Hartinder) Dhami is the son of Palvinder Dhami, lead singer of legendary Bhangra group Heera which reigned supreme during the 80’s golden era.
Born literally with a mic in his hand, H was performing in the shadow of his father from the tender age of six and it was inevitable that he was to become a major driving force on the UK Bhangra scene.
In 2007, H formed alliances with renowned music producer Rishi Rich who signed him to his very own powerhouse production company Rishi Rich Productions.
The Hounslow boy started to perform the UK Mela circuit and alongside Bollywood heavy weights like Shah Rukh Khan. H also went on to perform in Dubai and embarked on a city tour in the USA reigniting their love for UK Bhangra.
The release of H’s first single Sadke Java was a summer hit for 2007. It featured Rishi’s unique trademark beats and with such fresh vocals, the single was an instant hit. Fans were also delighted to see the slick, glossy production of the video and it was later voted ‘Best Video’ by ZEE TV viewers.
In early 2008, H released his debut album which shared the same name as his first single. The hotly anticipated Sadke Java featured thirteen songs and collaborations with artists such as Roach Killa, Chaaya and Mumzy Stranger. The album reached No.1 in all the Asian charts and radio stations, TV networks and critiques alike were eager to welcome the new boy on the block.
In March 2008 - less than three months after his album was released, H received the award for ‘Best Newcomer’ at the prestigious B4U UK Asian Music Awards (AMAs)
H has also managed to take his first step on the coaching ladder by completing the FA Level 1 Coaching Course. The avid Arsenal supporter is the first Asian artist to participate in the FA’s ‘Football For All’ strategy set up to encourage young Asians to participate in the sport.
Since 2008, H has released two more videos including; Mitran Di Jaan and Har Gabroo from his hugely successful album. He’s released his album in India and North America and has been nominated for three awards for the UK AMA’s 2009 and won ‘Best Act.’
With a magnetic stage presence, H has left a blazing trail, spreading not only his name but also his charm. The boy who once shadowed his father is now undoubtedly living the dream.
