Bikram Singh and Manik Explore Their 'Roots'

New York based Bhangra newcomer Manik has teamed up with Bikram Singh on his single "Roots." Taking a different route to his music, Manik is categorizing "Roots" as an experimental, educational, and inspirational song.

"Roots," as the title suggests, tells the story of a Desi kid raised in New York facing difficulties trying to fit in. The song is a nod to all those who have struggled to give the next generation a better life.
Manik has been performing locally for a few years now. Having worked with the likes of DJ Sharad, Manik is using his experience to launch his solo career.

Staying humble, Manik believes that no show is too small. Manik claims to have one mission, "to reach the world with his words rapping about things other than what's there in the mainstream." Watch the video for "Roots" and let us know if this song moves you.
