International kings of urban-bhangra, Rhythm Dhol Bass (RDB) will set the stage alight in Pakistan this month. The band is scheduled to visit Lahore, Multan and Karachi for some high energy performances from August 27 to September 30. Performing with RDB at the tour and making her Pakistan debut will be popular UK urban music artist Nindy Kaur.
Hailed as ‘The Kings Are Back Pakistan Tour 2’, the concert will be the first major performance by RDB since the sad demise of band member and brother Kuly in May.
“Kuly always used to say ‘we break boundaries’,” said band member Suri, talking about his brother’s tragic death. “This further motivates us to achieve so much more than we have to this date. The saying goes ‘the show must go on’ and that it will, with a vengeance,” he added.
With its collaboration with big names of Hollywood and Bollywood, RDB has written, sung, played and produced countless hit songs for many A-list Bollywood films. On the other hand, Kaur has worked on both Asian and mainstream collaborations and has successfully released her first two hit singles from her debut solo album, Nindypendent, which entered straight into the number one spot on the Indian music charts.
Speaking about the tour, Suri said: “We are really looking forward to our performance in Pakistan. We love the Pakistani audience! They are full of life and really enjoy our music — they will get the party started properly!”
The band feels that Pakistani music has a lot of variety in terms of beats and rhythm, which makes it enjoyable for them to listen to classic Pakistani beats.
“I’m excited that by popular demand of my Pakistani fans, I will be on this tour. I don’t know what to expect, and so this just makes it even more thrilling. I’ll be with the RDB boys, so I’m sure they’ll look after me! I can’t wait to get out on stage and rock the venue!” said Kaur.
RDB and Kaur had teamed up to create some chart-toppers like “Kambakkht Ishq”, “Aloo Chaat”, “Yamla Pagla Deewana” and “Char Din Ki Chandni”. Performing their biggest hits, many of which are famed from the soundtracks of some of Bollywood’s most loved films, RDB and Nindy Kaur are set to take Pakistan by storm!
