Kuldeep Manak - Kaliyan Da Baadshah- King of folk
« on: September 18, 2011, 06:50:41 AM »

Kuldeep Manak (ਕੁਲਦੀਪ ਮਾਣਕ‌) is the name of Latif Mohammed (born 15 November 1949). He is a Punjabi singer who is known for singing a genre of traditional Punjabi songs called kaliyan.

 Early Life
Kuldeep Manak was born in the village of Jalal in the Bathinda district. His father, Nikka Khan, was a singer himself. Manak has two brothers: Siddqui, a devotional singer, and Rafiq, a tantric, who also hit the headlines for a while. Kuldeep Manak's ancestors were the hazoori raagis (designated cantors) of Kirtan for Maharaja Hira Singh of Nabha (Nabha). He studied under Ustad Kushi Mohammad Qawwal of Ferozepur. Manak later converted to Sikhism and he keeps a Guru Granth Sahib saroop in his home.
Manak was the youngest in his class. He completed his matriculation from the village school, where he was a keen hockey player. He had an inclination towards singing from a very young age and was persuaded by his teachers to sing and perform on stage. In 1968, at only 17 years of age, he was given the chance to sing with Seema, a singer of that period. He is married to Sarabjeet and has two children, a son Yuhdhvir Manak (married) and a daughter Shakti (married). Yudhvir is following in his father's footsteps as an up-and-coming singer from Punjab. Manak is a heavy drinker since young age, he says his habit of drinking came from the people whose company he shared.
Manak left Bhathinda and went to Ludhiana to pursue his career as a singer. He started singing with the duo Harcharan Grewal and Seema. When they came to Delhi, a music company official spotted Manak and asked him to record the song Jija Akhian Na Maar Vemain Kal Di Kuri (written by Babu Singh Maan Mararawale) with Seema. His first record features this song along with Laung Karaa Mitran, Machli Paunge Maape (written by Gurdev Singh Mann). This record was a runaway success.
He started an office at Bhatinda along with writer Dilip Singh Sidhu, but did not stay there for long and returned to Ludhiana. The writer Hardev Dilgir (also known as Dev Thrikewala) spotted Manak at one of his live performances and penned Lok Gathava (English: Old Stories) for him.
His first album, Teri Khatir Heere, was released by HMV. In 1976 his first LP was released called Ek tara. It included the songs Tere Tilley Ton, Chheti Kar Sarwan Bachaa

Kuldeep Manak Saab was a real deal.
Our current generation of Punjab should really listen and praise the old school tunes.
These songs are not only based upon the Punjabi folklore but also teach true bravery, guts, glory and yet being humble and down to earth.

The current gangster nonsense in the Punjabi youth is nothing but hollow talk, boastfulness, stupidity, in short = "fukrebaazi" ! Nothing to do with being the real us !
