Kissmet was conceived by Ron and Buzz Singh, two Sikh brothers born and bred in the UK. Though their family life was that of a traditional Indian family, their social life was one listening to prog rock, the sounds of the 80's pop and reggae.
When they became musicians, they found they could sing in English, Punjabi and Hindi equally as well, and they discovered that Bhangra and Rock fused together made the power of both forms go exponential! They knew they had something very special in their hands.
Favourites on the UK festival scene, performing at all the largest venues and events, Kissmet has captured their powerful and evocative live sound on this album, Trippin' the life fantastic!
Brimming with power, haunting vocals, hidden messages and cross cultural melodies, this album will have you singing at the top of your voice, dancing like no one's looking at you in the dark, and gasping for air. You've just got to join in to feel the full force.
Bhangra has been performed in fields of the Punjab for hundreds of years as a way to invigorate the people to bring in the harvest as quickly as possible. As such, it is designed to be highly positively charged, to get everyone involved and to be nonstop powerful. Fuse this with the power of western Rock music, with riffs and licks and chops and slides, and you have the equivalent of rampaging horses on a beach of gold. Don't be afraid, just hand on for your bare life and enjoy the ride. You're safe as it's all good but, it is one heck of a journey!
Trippin' the life fantastic is not a song title, it's a vision, a dream, a way of life, the Kissmet's way of life...
