Biography

Introduction

Not many artists can truly claim to have changed the sound of Bhangra percussion. Not many can claim to have been and still continue to be a true innovator and pioneer. Hailing from Birmingham, England, he is a master of the Dholki, Dhol and Tabla. He is the one and only, Tubsy. Whenever Punjabi percussion comes to mind so does Tubsy. Even as young as 16 he was a charismatic dholak player with dynamic sounds coming out of everywhere!

The Innovator

Whilst still in his mid-teens, Tubsy gave birth to a new dawn in Bhangra percussion. Feeling, emotion, attitude, and a groove that had never been heard before. Spawning many emulators and providing inspiration for many percussionists, the evidence can still be heard today.

Tubsy on his Bhangra career

"I've been fortunate enough to have sessioned on hundreds of singles and albums including Satrang's debut album 'Bhangra Muffin', including songs such as 'Dhola Veh Dhola', Safri Boyz's 'Bomb the Tumbi' and mainstream singles such as Apache Indian's 'Arranged Marriage' and Justin Timberlake's RnB single with Jayshree." Be sure to check out his new album release in 2012; GUNZ AND ROZES

Live Performances

Jazzy B

To experience Jazzy B, the Prince of Bhangra, LIVE is an opportunity to savour Tubsy's brilliance on the dholak (dholki). His superb depth of emotion, amazing speed, variety, together with a charismatic charm and joy shines through.

Malkit Singh

Back in the early 90s Tubsy, still in his teens, played full-time for the undisputed King of Bhangra, Malkit Singh. This particular event was at the Town & Country club, London and was broadcast on mainstream television in the UK. Even a 16 year old Tubsy can still have that charismatic effect on his playing. To view this brilliant playing please view this video link; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PS5ZacXRrl8

Satrang

This was the ultimate band in it's category. Tubsy gave his all in every single one of his performances and this was recognised through the Bhangra industry and it was no surprise that Satrang became one of, if not THE best LIVE Bhangra band at the time. A re-mix of one of their biggest hits was released by new talent PBN.
