A name synonymous with Punjabi folklore and Sufi songs, Hans Raj Hans is as Punjabi by nature as his songs - donning a beard and long curly hair, he is the epitome of the rural Punjab village youth. Guru Ustad Puran Shahkoti Sahib, his guru who trained him, bestowed his surname 'Hans' on him. He is the Punjabi folk singer with his own style. He has performed all over the world, in places like, USA, Canada, Europe, Middle East and many more countries. Success has not changed Hans Raj Hans.
He is still a down-to-earth Sufi singer who has carved a niche for himself amongst the great singing icons of Punjab. Hans Raj Hans was honoured with the best male singer award for 'Dil chori sada ho gaya'.
