Sadhu Singh Ji is a 30 years old folk artist, who performs with the Malwai Giddha group till date, without letting his age becoming a barrier. His passion for native folk art is his strength. He plays the ‘Dande’ in the Malwai Giddha group and enjoys playing ‘Tumbi’ equally. He belongs to Chattha village near Sangrur. Since childhood, he was deeply interested in this folk art form, and he mastered it gradually by observing different Giddha groups in the local fairs and festivals of his village. He started performing Giddha and playing Tumbi and Chimta when he was as young as 14. He devoted all his life to this art form. He also used to sing ‘boliyaan’ in the same group. He also does farming. He has 4 sons who are involved in farming with him. He has won many accolades and has been awarded by the former Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh. He picked up this art on his own listening to the community singers. His children also learn boliyaan from him. He composes his own ‘boliyaan’ as well. Sometimes, he spontaneously sings ‘boliyaan’ while performing, which have always accorded a dynamic touch to his performance.
