International urban-bhangra artiste Nindy Kaur has crooned a special song in memory of RDB’s Kuly Ral.
The moving song, titled ‘Tut Giya Dil’, features the vocal talents of rising urban rap star Smooth, whose collaboration on Nindy’s track ‘Aloo Chat’ saw him come to the attention of music moguls around the world.
He was immediately signed to the RDB label Three Records Ltd to work on new material, with his debut being a feature on Nindy’s tribute track to Kuly.
The track has been written by Nindy, Smooth and Kuly’s father Harjog Singh, and is scheduled for release later this month through Three Records Ltd.
Nindy said of the project: “Not only did I lose my brother-in-law but a true friend, my biggest support and studio buddy. The atmosphere in the studio will never be same.
“I had to pour out my feelings to Dad (Harjog Singh) when writing my lines, and I must say Dad did an amazing job of writing those emotion filled lines.
“Smooth is like a brother and we've shared many good times with Kuly when making songs like ‘Aloo Chaat’. When he asked me to be part of this song there was no way I would ever refuse…”
Billed as a ‘one to watch’ star for 2012, Nindy has successfully released her first two hit singles from her debut solo album, ‘Nindypendent’.
Earlier this year, she also came to the attention of mainstream music pundits with the release of ‘Save The World’, a fusion track of pure adrenaline dance coupled with Nindy’s trademark Punjabi kick, produced by the Canadian music group Culture Shock behind hits for Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Nicole Scherzinger.
Kuly aka Kuldeep Ral was 35 when he succumbed to his battle with cancer.
Kuly, was the music producer of the band RDB, comprising Manj (Manjeet) and Surj (Surjeet), known for hit tracks like “Aaja Mahi”, “Shera di Kaum” and “Singh is Kinng”.
Actor Akshay Kumar, a close friend of the RDB boys and supported them in almost all his recent films, had said at the time: “…Such a talented guy, was behind some awesome chartbusters for many of my films. My heartfelt condolences to the RDB family.”
