Kamal Heer comes from a musical dynasty. The youngest of 3 famous accomplished musicians, the Heer family came along with a brand new take on the traditional form of Punjabi music. It was alongside his brothers that Kamal received his first taste of a professional music career but has since gone on to crave a successful future for himself as a solo artist.
As the last of a dying breed of traditionally trained musicians, Kamal learned the complex art of Hindustani as part of his extensive musical training. As other musicians before him he was taught by a guru. After completing his training in India, Karmal moved to Canada where he launched his professional career. His first break came when he worked alongside his brother Sangtar to compose new material for their elder brother, Manmohan Waris’s debut album.
The album was very well received with many people remarking on the fresh and innovative approach the brothers had taken to their lyrics, composition and voices. The brothers carried on working together and created countless more hits.
Kamal also had ambitions for a solo career and released his own record in 2000 entitled Kamli. It was a blistering success with one critic calling it “a milestone in Punjabi music.” However his second album, Masti, was an even bigger hit and catapulted Karmal to international fame.
Now Karmal is in demand all over the world and regularly performs in venues from London to Vancouver to Mumbai. His live concerts are always a sell-out as his energy packed performances and stunning improvisations never fail to impress the Bhangra fans. The recording of his live concert in Wembley is the biggest selling Punjabi music DVD.
