11 January 2010
Kazz Kumar was quickly added to the Sona Family’s line-up a couple of years ago, after Hard Kaur’s loud & scrappy exit - and during those first few months stuck in between Harry Sona & MC Riz it seemed she may have been brought in primarily for her exotic wardrobe and multitude hair colours. But since then she’s slowly built up a loyal following as an artist in her own right, as well as a creative individual who has a momentum that just screams “Watch This Space!”
It may seem sometimes that her main role within the Desi music industry is to be photographed week after week in another ludicrous (but oh so cool) outfit, pouting and snarling into the camera lens, but 25th January 2010 is when her debut single ‘Dirty Word’ is released, and as you can see from this video its a bloody corker! The track and video both capture what I love about her – namely her ability to exist within the worlds of pop as well as independent cool at the same time. If you’re still not convinced check out the Maida Vale session she did on my Asian Network show for ‘Friction Introducing’ – we knew back then she wasn’t just a clotheshorse!
