Share post:

AP Dhillon is all set to perform in Coachella along with Global phenomenons Bad Bunny and Blackpink as headliners. The Indo-Canadian singer and rapper talked about the things he wants to achieve for Punjabi music on a global scale. Dhillon became the second performer after Diljit Dosanjh to perform a complete Punjabi set of music at Coachella on Sunday. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone India, he unveiled a lot of facts about his upcoming performance. Let’s check out the complete details of this story.

AP Dhillon wants to promote Indian culture on a Global stage 

When Dhillon is asked what he is looking forward to in the event, he said, “It’s huge. I’m performing alongside a lot of artists I look up to. I’ve never even been to Coachella, so I’m excited to see some of the music. This can’t be a regular show – your fans are there, but there’s fans for a lot of other artists who are there waiting for the next show. I won’t say I’m nervous, I’m excited. This is huge for our culture, our people, for people who speak Punjabi, and India overall. It’s a big deal for us to have slowly built our music to this level. I hope it inspires kids born in India or immigrants from these countries.”

The rapper told the outlet, “It brings the culture together.” 

Moreover, he was asked about achieving this milestone for Punjabi music after Diljit Dosanjh, “I think it makes sense. There’s a lot of Indians in the U.S., Canada, all over. That’s a huge new audience for [Coachella]. The way we’ve seen Latin music growing, that’s where I think Punjabi music is going to go more and more. But it goes both ways. We get to connect with this side of the world. We get to perform for an audience that might not understand the lyrics, but they’ll like the music, the energy, the flow. I listen to a lot of shit I don’t understand, but I still vibe to it. Latin music I don’t understand what the fuck they’re saying, but it’s fucking cool.”

While talking about the possibilities of Punjabi music achieving the same success as Spanish music he noted, “I think we’re at a stage where the artists are before Bad Bunny’s [level of fame]. Our music is at that stage right now, and it’s gonna hit the next destination. It’s going to help our people, it’s going to help other artists make their come-up in the future, too.”
