With renowned Punjabi artistes and musicians coming together, this special edition of Mixtape Punjabi will give you variety in the arrangement of songs and a brilliant musical experience.”

The show has been directed by Ahmed Khan, who has created the best vibe for a visual treat. Infusing these songs back into modern times, Abhijit Vaghani has added a vibrant touch of rare instruments like Mandolian, Bagalbacha, Chimta, Bugchu, Chellos, Ghatam, Xylophone, Alghozam, Shehnai and many more.

Music director of the show, Abhijit Vaghani comments, “Mixtape Punjabi is bigger than Mixtape 1. We have gone bigger with production. We have experimented a lot with fusion.  After that, I got an idea that let's just explore the regional side of our country and what best we could do is Punjabi. Because, we all dance to Punjabi songs at parties and it’s almost like a universal language in India. And it's beautiful even the sad songs. And of course, combine it with experimental production which is commercial and making it go out in clubs and you know all the sad songs featuring all the legends like Hans Raj Hans, Harbhajan Mann, Daler Mehndi all of them. It just feels like it's a blast and it's an unbelievable season.”

Mixtape Punjabi will air on T-series YouTube channel from December 2017.
