The conversation started on the note – how did V Play Music meet Gurdas Maan Saab? The artist told us, “Someone from Gurdas Maan Ji’s management team saw me performing live in a Badshah’s concert and they really liked the work.

After all the practice, we had a setlist where we blended Maan Saab’s folk songs with some western touches here and there.”

It was something new and very inspiring because the whole team that Maan Saab has of musicians is a seasoned team I will say. These musicians have been working with Gurdas Saab right from his initial days.
“So blending with those really experienced musicians was a really great experience overall. The way they handle things in terms of musical aspects, and learnings that I got from them, not even just sharing the stage with Maan Saab was a dream come true moment for me but the musicians I spent time with, on stage and off stage were really amazing as well,” he quoted. Besides playing guitars, V Play Music also produces music for his own singles. He has big plans for his upcoming projects.
