Sarbjit Singh Chadha (born June 17, 1952 in New Delhi, India) is an Indian singer, who is said to be the first non-Japanese enka singer.[1] He went to Japan to study agricultural industry, and there he began to like enka. He gained popularity via the Japanese television program Kinyō 10 Ji: Uwasa no Channel.[2] He debuted as an enka singer with the single "Omokage no Hito" (面影の女) under JVC in 1975. The single reportedly sold over 100,000 copies.[3] He soon returned to India because of a visa problem. However, he returned to Japan in 2008.[1]
