A living legend of Bhangra, a true innovator and pioneer. Hailing from Southall, England, he is a master of the Tabla, Dholak and Dhol. He is the one and only, Sunil Kalyan.
Sunil arrived in this world in the month of August in the seventies, with the honour of being legendary percussionist Ustad T. Kalyan's first born child. From a early age Sunil was likely to follow in the footsteps of his father, who is a internationally aclaimed classical musician. From Sunil's classical musical heritage he grasped his natural talent to stamp his mark on the industry locally and internationally.
The magical, golden touch of his 'sur' and 'taal' has captured the true essence of punjabi folk music, outstretching into the hearts of millions worldwide. His inspirations have emerged from both east and west, from legends such as Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan to Timothy 'Timbaland' Mosley. This diversity has further deepened his hunger for production. If hearing is believing and anything to go by, you can say his innovative nature has given birth to a 4th dimension in today's Panjabi industry.
Prior to the evolution of DA PRODUCT Sunil has worked with some of the world's leading artists and producers such as Alaap, Malkit Singh, Jazzy B, Sukhshinder Shinda, Lembher Husssainpuri, Nirmal Sidhu, A.S.Kang, DCS, Heera, Premi, Sahotas, Apna Sangeet, Safri Boyz, Panjabi MC, Bally Sagoo, Ravi Bal, Hunterz, Kam Frantic, Mangal Singh, Sardool Sikander, Jaspinder Narula, Saber Koti, Gurdass Maan, Panjabi Hit Squad and Surinder Bachan.
