By: Jasmine Singh | November 21, 2021

The legendary Punjabi folk singer Gurmeet Bawa passed away today at the age of 77 due to a prolonged illness. This news has shaken the Punjabi music industry as she was an extremely skilled singer and her death has resulted in a tremendous loss for the music industry.

The singer was known for her long hek (breathless opening of a Punjabi folk song calling "ho") for which she even holds the record for about 45 seconds. Bawa is also one of the singers known for singing ‘Jugni’ after the (late) Alam Lohar and was the first Punjabi female singer to sing on Doordarshan. Over the span of her career, she had even won many international accolades. Also Read: New Punjabi Film ‘Sheran Di Kaum Punjabi’ Announced!
