Kaur, originally from Birmingham, is currently on a promotional spree of her new single ‘Sherni’.

During her 30-minute performance, Kaur performed her popular songs ‘Char Baj Gaye’ and ‘Ganpati’, as well as ‘Sherni’. The crowds at the station went wild with her interactive performance and humble attitude. She also gave an exclusive radio interview post her performance and took selfies with the fans that came to see her.

Sabras Radio’s Teeyan Da Mela was hosted by Jagdeep Rainu, which also included colourful performances by Jaswinder Jassi, Shinda Sureela, Happy Singh, Sukh Cheema, Rosie & Bhangra Blast, Simmy Gidha Group and Bal Kular. The event attracted hundreds of listeners, which took place at the station’s studio between 16:00 and 19:00.

Raj Baddhan, Operations Manager said, “This year’s Teeyan Da Mela was the biggest we’ve ever done. We attracted a record amount of listeners that descended into our studios to catch a rang of glittering performances. We added a younger flex to the line-up this year, which included Hard Kaur, who flew over from Mumbai to be at the event. Other performers also did a fantastic job to make this year’s event a raging success. At Sabras Radio, we like to do things with a different twist. These community events help us stay connected with the local community and moreover gets listeners closer to their favourite artists.”
