Diljit Dosanjh has taken another step as the first Punjabi artist to perform at the 2023 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California. During his performance, he shouted “Punjabi aa gaye Coachella oye” to announce his arrival on stage, which quickly went viral on social media. The singer has now shared his thoughts on the memorable line, which became one of the highlights of his energetic performance.
Dressed in a black kurta, lungi and matching turban with sneakers, Diljit Dosanjh offered a prayer before entering the stage, receiving cheers from the audience. During the show, he said in Punjabi, “Now it’s written in history. Punjabi aa gaye hum Coachella (Punjabis have reached Coachella). And those who don’t understand my songs, catch the vibe.”
In a recent interview with ABP, Diljit revealed that he originally planned to say “Yo guys, you’re feeling good”, but a conversation with someone 10 days before the event made him realize the importance of his performance. The person told him that he would be the first to speak in Punjabi on the Coachella stage, which the singer hadn’t considered before. “I hadn’t thought of that. I thought that an Indian artist, a Punjabi artist from India was going there so my performance must be up to par,” he said.
“The ‘Punjabi aa gaye Coachella oye’ line wasn’t just my feeling. That’s why it touched everyone because it’s not just me. The person who told me that was her feeling and she thought it wasn’t just you, it was all of us,” he added.
During the interaction, he also mentioned that although his performance was scheduled to start at 6:50 p.m., there was a slight delay caused by a stranger who accidentally pulled out the keyboard cable moments before he was on the about to go on stage.
“Someone had accidentally removed the cable from our keyboard. It was supposed to start at 6:50 but it didn’t. The stage was empty. I was looking at the time, and I was wasting time because the performance was supposed to end at 7:30 and you can’t even extend it even for a minute because the sound would disconnect. I was too worried then. I thought whoever brought me here, he was just playing these tricks, so I left him alone. he shared in punjabi.
