Once again U make some valid points.
I think the problem really is that the situation in the Punjabi music industry is very similar to that which prevailed in the heavyweight boxing for a long time.
For example, u had Mike Tyson who was the undisputed no 1...and the no 2's and 3's were so poor that Tyson would knock them out in a couple of seconds.
By the way, what is happening in the UK Bhangra scene these days...I have lost touch. Last time I heard any Bhangra live was in 1998 at a dinner and dance where Alaap were playing. Since then I have absolutely no idea who is hot or who is not.
And what are Malkit Singh or AS Kang up to lately. I heard AS Kang's album "Untouchables" when it was released, but haven't heard anything from him since.
And what happened to the likes of Apna Sangeet, Heera and others...are they still recording/performing...or is the audience just into B21.
