Dya
Singh's impact on the world music stage has been nothing short of
phenomenal. He sings about spirituality in his native Punjabi (with
occasional English explanations) and blends traditional music with
modern and contemporary trends - country & western and new
accoustic music. He has single-handedly taken the traditional Sikh
spiritual music of his ancestral Punjab (frontier province on the
border of present day India and Pakistan, south of Afghanistan) into
the world music stage reaching out from his source indigenous music to
fusion with music from other parts of the world. He attributes his
unique music to his birth and formative years in multiracial Malaysia,
to staunch Sikh parents (his father was a Sikh missionary and minstrel
sent to Malaysia from Punjab), and the multicultural opportunities in
Australia.

Today
Dya Singh heads one of the foremost 'world' music groups in Australia
named after him and has six albums in seven short years. The group was
born in 1993. He has twice been awarded 'Instrumentalist of the year'
by SAMIA (South Australian Music Industry awards). The group has twice
been nominated 'World Music Group of the year' winning it once. The
group now travels widely throughout the world and is highly acclaimed
by both Sikh and alternative mainstream audiences.
