His first song ‘Bulla ki Jaana’ from his debut album Rabbi was a chart-topper song of 2005. Rabbi Shergill is an Indian musician, whose music has been described as rock, Sufiana, and “semi-Sufi semi-folksy kind of music with a lot of Western arrangements”. Rabbi himself has been called “Punjabi music’s true urban balladeer”.
Rabbi’s music has been inspired by Rock as well as Sufi and Punjabi folk music. His songs are deeply philosophical and blend archaic, almost lost, Punjabi phrases into far more recent Indian rock music with great ease.
Rabbi, his debut album released in 2004 by Phat Phish Records, was an instant hit and grabbed notable airtime on Indian radio. In 2008 he launched the album Avengi Ja Nahin.
Rabbi doles out some of his popular hit songs in an acoustic format on Micromax MTV Unplugged comprising ‘Bullah’, the song based on the poetry of 18th century Sufi saint Baba Bulleh Shah, ‘Jugni’, a folk special, ‘Bilqis’, the song that pays tribute to four unsung heroes of our nation, ‘Tere Bin’ from the movie Delhi Heights and ‘Heer’ based on a poetic love story along with ‘Gill Te Guitar’, ‘Challa’ and ‘Totia Manmotia’.
