Soni Pabla (29 June 1976 – 14 October 2006) was an Indian-born musician who wrote and sang Punjabi songs. He died on 14 October 2006 at the age of 30.


Pabla was born and raised in Bilaspur village of Punjab, India. He moved to Toronto, Canada in the mid 90s. He studied music under Rajinder Singh Raj, which led him towards a recording contract with Planet Recordz, a record label in Canada. Soni released his debut album, entitled Heeray Heeray, in 2002. In 2004, Soni teamed up with Sukshinder Shinda to produce his second album, Gal Dil Di by velocity records. He has also been featured on numerous albums with various producers. His album Eternity (Naseebo) was a tribute to Soni by his friends and Planet Recordz. This album features new songs which Soni had selected for his album. Some songs in this album feature other Punjabi singers.


Soni Pabla was performing a show in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. After singing the song "Gal Dil Di", Soni went off the stage to get a glass of water, before collapsing as he drank it, paramedics tried to revive him but he was pronounced dead while on the way to the hospital. He had suffered a heart attack. Because the song "Gal Dil Di" was his last performed song, there has been a remixed version of it in his album "Eternity" (Naseebo), in remembrance...
