Forerunners of the, International Indian R&B, and Hip-Hop music scene, the four artists will come together to play a one-off night in Dubai this September

Popular independent artists Jay Sean, Manj Musik, Juggy D, and Raghav – widely regarded as forerunners of the noughties Punjabi, R&B and Hip-Hop music scene – are set to perform on a night of nostalgia at Coca-Cola Arena on September 9, 2023.

Brought to the region by BookMyShow Live Middle East, the region’s leading event content producer, ‘Indie Vibes’ promises a host of iconic throwback hits for one night only, with the event marking the first of its kind in Dubai.

Jay Sean, the award-winning singer, songwriter, and producer, was the first Asian artist to have a Billboard No1 single. He promises a memorable evening featuring some of his greatest hits, including Down, Do You Remember, and Ride It. Having previously supported acts such as Pitbull, Alicia Keys, and Justin Timberlake, Jay Sean will be sharing the stage in the emirate with Manj Musik, whose RDB (Rhythm, Dhol, Bass) were behind songs such as We Doin It and Daddy Da Cash. The British-Indian artist ventured on a solo career following the death of his brother in 2012.

Elsewhere, Juggy D is sure to make an impact on event goers. Largely known as one of the most influential Punjabi artists in British history after featuring heavily on Rishi Rich’s album The Project, including alongside Jay Sean on Push It Up (Aaja Kurieh). Later co-hosting The Rishy Rich Project radio show on London’s Kiss 100, he went on to feature on tracks by, among others, Britney Spears, Ricky Martin, Craig David, and Mary J Blige.

Canadian singer Raghav sold more than 1.5 million copies of his debut album Storyteller in 2003, leading to a MOBO Award and four UK top singles. He last performed in Dubai in 2014 and has enjoyed commercial success with song Angel Eyes. Fans can expect an energetic performance from the Desperado hit maker.
