Singer Jasbir Jassi has come a long way from playing the harmonium as a youngster, writing poetry, and being a classically trained musician, but none of that really matters as he takes a sharp tangent into dandiya territory with the Gujarat state-of-mind inspiring “Dhol Vagyo”. Dandiya, of course, is the traditional folk dance form of Gujarat, originated in Vrindavan by Lord Krishna and, along with Garba, both are the featured dances of Navratri evenings in Western India. Jasbir supports the traditional sounds effectively on “Dhol Vagyo”, further supported by the vocals of Richa Sharma and Beera, which receive contemporary arrangements through the usage of keyboards, completing Jasbir’s cross-cultural metamorphosis from Punjab da munda to Gujarat no bhai!
