Sahara UK band is a modern musical phenomenon, a regular at weddings and other special occasions across South Asia because of their unique blend of addicting melodies, appealing lyrics and production values, and a string of smash hits. Herbie Sahara, frontman Harvinder formed the band. Band is run by Herbie Sahara and Gurps Sahara.
Sahara UK embarked on tours to Canada, Norway, Denmark, India and Pakistan, Kenya, the USA, and Dubai. They played at the legendary ‘Dubai Rain’ festival as the songs gained popularity. Sahara’s music has become increasingly popular at weddings, parties, and club shows around the globe, making them a sought-after live act.
Early Life of Sahara UK band
Herbie, a Briton born, began humming along to songs from Bollywood when he was just three years old. Graduating to singing at his local Sikh temple as he got older further solidified his desire to pursue a career in music.
Herbie’s earliest memory of Bhangra is the first time he heard and felt the music of London’s great bands, Alaap and Heera. At age ten, Herbie joined the Bhangra dance group “Nachda Punjab” with his brothers Kully and Gurps, where he received his musical training by playing keyboards and singing in local bands.
Herbie had his first solo stage appearance in Bradford, United Kingdom, when he was 11 years old.
Sahara UK band Career
Herbie and Kully formed the band Sahara in 1993, and the success of their debut album, “Intemptation,” propelled them to national prominence. Johnny Zee produced their subsequent two albums, ‘Let Loose’ in 1994 and ‘Blue Print’ in 1997, both of which came out shortly after this one.
Before 2001, when Sahara released ‘Access All Areas,’ they were largely unknown outside Africa. The album did incredibly well, and “Soniye Ni Soniye” became the year’s most famous single.
In 2005, the Sahara brand reached new heights after the song “Billo Ni (Tera Lal Ghagra),” which was included on the album “Undisputed,” became an almost instantaneous anthem due to its inclusion on the album. The song was not only very successful on the radio, but it was well received worldwide, particularly in countries such as India, Kenya, Pakistan, and the United Arab Emirates, even to this day.
Sahara UK Band Performances in Pakistan
In the last few years, the boys have toured extensively across the globe, playing in countries as diverse as Pakistan, India, Norway, Malaysia, Singapore, the Netherlands, Belgium, and, most recently, Australia, spreading their message that music can bring people together and help them to relax and enjoy themselves.
The fact that they regularly perform in Pakistan attests to the power of music to unite people from all walks of life.
Sahara is honored to be one of the few UK Punjabi acts to have a single in a Pakistani feature film, and they are delighted to be British artists showcasing the Bhangra genre worldwide. Billo Hai is the featured song on the new Azar Jafri/ARY Films action-comedy “Parchi,” which has been a substantial financial success in Pakistan and most other countries where it has been distributed.
Among Pakistan’s most requested songs for events in the past year, “Billo Hai” has also been nominated for “Wedding Song of the Year.”
In Nov 2016, QHBCW Bridal Couture Week concluded in Lahore, Pakistan, where the boys performed on the catwalk for designers “Asifa & Nabeel” in front of the fashion glitterati. This was a first for the boys in their music career.
In 2018, they played to over 15,000 people at the Coca-Cola FIFA World Cup Trophy event in Lahore, Pakistan, and then to 35,000 people at the Multan Cricket Stadium for the Wasim Akram’s Sultans XI vs. Shoaib Malik’s Toofan XI exhibition game.
The boys played to a record-breaking crowd of over 45,000 people in January 2019 at CokeFest at Gulberg Greens in Islamabad. Sahara UK considers it a great honor to have headlined so many of CokeFest’s marquee events in Pakistan over the years. Sahara has been performing live for over 25 years, and they have planned several new and exciting projects this year.
