I’ve always been drawn to the women singers of bhangra, and after many years I finally put a DJ mix together celebrating some of the women in the contemporary bhangra scene. This mix is not at all comprehensive, and many great singers are not represented. This mix is merely a selection, and no disrespect is intended towards any singers not included.

April 25, 2016

A personal history. I first became aware of Prince in elementary school. I remember hearing “Little Red Corvette” and “1999” on the radio. I remember the radio DJ describing him as a controversial figure before playing “Little Red Corvette” as if his music couldn’t even be presented to the public without a warning notice. I […]
