US-based multifaceted artist Biba Singh, a qualified doctor and talented singer by profession returns. This is her second album with music composed by ace composer Santokh Singh of song “Channa Veh Ghar Aaja” fame. They both have splendid chemistry as composer and singer as Biba’s previous album says it all. There will be two music videos and the duo will be working on the creative theme for the videos, which will be shot in Agra by PTC award winning Video director Sandeep Sharma. The multi-talented singer will visit India to record her 2nd album.
Talking about her Hindi debut, Biba Singh says, “Music and medicine are my life. I believe in living life to the fullest for we all just live it once and my next Hindi album will reflect this philosophy. We have been brainstorming and ideating the last six months for creating a unique campaign for my debut album launch and I am onfident that it will stir people’s hearts, minds and souls. The serene beauty of Agra, where the monumental Taj Mahal is located, will add to the romance, masti and the music!”
Music composer Santokh Singh adds, “In her debut Hindi album, Biba is going to excel and reveal new dimensions of her talent. We have put in a lot of efforts in the overall packaging of her new album in terms of the music composition, videos and locales. The songs will be chartbusters as soon as the album is released.”
Though Biba was born and brought up in the US and later took up professional medical training, her parents always kept her connected to her roots of Indian culture. As a child prodigy, she commenced singing at the young age of 7 and rendered her lovely vocals to the shabads in the Gurudwara. Over the years, she participated in multiple cultural programmes and also continued singing shabads at the Gurudwara. The encouragement, love and motivation kept her going.
The Singer had a number of teachers for music, but her constant teacher was none other than her loving mother, who wasn’t a Singer herself but would motivate her daughter.
However a couple of her dear childhood friends – Pinky Paras , Daler Mehndi, Nikki Mehndi and Mika, that she has known over the years, have helped her grow in her music career with all their guidance and motivation. Biba also learned Hindustani Classical Music at the Suresh Wadakar Ajivasan Sa Re Ga Ma Music Academy in New York. Nevertheless as the eldest child of the three, her parents have always kept a focus on education and her father, being a Doctor, always wished that his daughter would follow his foot-steps while keeping up with her passion of singing.
Soon When Biba was 21 years of age, she vividly remembers Daler Veerji telling her parents that their daughter should do an album, for it was the right time and age to enter the industry. Atthat same time, she had got admission into Medical school in New York, and heralways supportive parents guided Biba that its a must to continue with education and become a Doctor first and then look into hobbies.
As time passed, her parents passionately helped her release her shabad/gurbani album titled ‘Desire for Truth-Saachi Baani’, that was successfully recorded in New York City under the baton of Ustaad Taari Khan. Furthermore with high recommendations from Daler Veerji the Singer was to fly to India and cut a pop album but put it on hold due to her pursuit in higher education. Biba went to Medical school and completed her MBBS and her MD as well. She is now a successful practicing Doctor in New York. What she understands out of the whole thing is that being a Doctor and a Singer has really helped her grow much more as a better human being. Biba Singh did not ever think that cutting an album would be an easy task and says “It takes much effort and hardwork to pursue your dreams in life”. Biba proudly says that she visits India regularly every 2-3 months to work on her music, and of course enjoy the beauty and culture of her roots in India.
So, now it’s that one moment of her life which she always dreamt of. And this year, she rejoices… thanking God in the first place for all His blessings showered upon her, thanking her loving parents, siblings and friends for their unending and undying support. While she continued to pursue her profession as a doctor she stepped ahead to put forth her debut album, ‘BIBA’ in 2009 and now the debut Hindi album which is coming to you soon is a natural progression.
