These two good friends met at the 2018 Surrey Board of Trade Mayor’s Arts Award, and Sami was instantly mesmerized by Ranj’s unique guitar style as well as his velvet voice. Sami’s company FUSIONpresents started booking Ranj at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel MIXT Lounge, where they manage the live entertainment. This showcase will be the first time these two amazing artists perform together!
About Ranj Singh
In the mid 1980’s, Surrey-based singer/songwriter Ranj Singh started his career performing with folk-Punjabi and Hindi artists including Harbhajan Mann. In the ‘90s, Ranj and his brothers, with the help of award-winning artist Dal Hothi, formed the bhangra rock group Dal-Dil-Vog (DDV). The group went on to win numerous awards and performed with artists such as Jan Arden, 54-40, Colin James, and Matthew Good. DDV’s unique style of music led to tours throughout North America and India, a live performance, and music videos on Much Music, and MTV Asia. More recently, Ranj has been working as a solo artist, performing over 200 shows a year. Ranj makes music with a distinct Indian-Western flair that draws on his love for rock music and heartfelt lyrics. He refers to his unique blend of music as “Indo-Canadian Folk”. Learn more.
