Bhangra And Beyond

Bhangra And Beyond

by

Bhangra and Beyond is a weekly music show hosted by DJ Rekha, a cultural instigator, recognized worldwide for being one of the first DJs to merge classic Bhangra sounds into the language of contemporary electronic dance music. The first 40 minutes of the show is comprised of Bhangra tracks, both fast and slow, classic and new. The style of Bhangra — which is a form of Punjabi folk music and dance coming from the region divided by India and Pakistan known as Punjab — is contemporary and produced for a global dance floor. Rekha shares her deep knowledge and personal connections of many of the artists featured in this segment. After a break, the remaining 20 minutes provides the listener with a deep dive into the analogue and digital creations of a DJ who has spun numerous genres in venues across the globe. Featuring South Asian-leaning bass, this set sometimes finds itself showcasing everything from A Tribe Called Red (mistaken Indian identity intended) to Diasporic Rapper over folk music to dubstep renditions of Sub-Continental Tropical Bass. “The spring harvest festival of Vaisakhi coincides with the release of this episode of the show, and DJ Rekha digs up an RDB and somewhat dark ode to the day. Bup Saggu drops a new song with DJ Harpz and Manwal. In the beyond segment, DJ Rekha, recalls Mona Haydar’s Hijabi, as support against the French government banning the head covering, plus a new one from Khanvict.
