Named ambassador of bhangra by the New York Times, she has been instrumental in placing bhangra on the map in North America. Rooted in bhangra and hip-hop her DJ sets range from Brazilian Baile Funk to Balkan Beats and everything in between. She is founder and resident of Basement Bhangra one NYC’s longest running dance parties. This week serves up a requisite bhangra bangers and new remix of one of Rekha’s favs by DJ Sanj as well as new tracks by Dipps Bhamra and DJ H. The beyond portion traverses many a genre with grammy nominated Chandrika Tandon, Nasha Experience, Tigerstyle, and not your average bitch, Raje Shwari.
