Bhangra Blowout

Another successful Bhangra Blowout this past weekend. Held by the GW South Asian Society, all three events, Bhangra on the Quad, the Show Bhangra Blowout,and the Afterparty at the Old Post Office Pavilion went smoothly and from what I understand, without incident. Congratualtion to UCLA Bhangra and the GW South Asian society. Special guest the UK's dhol foundation was impressive to watch as well. For a story and a picture, check out the Washington Post story here.

Also, I found an update to the PMC Jay-Z collaboration. The song seems to be doing quite well state-side, and if the airplay it is getting is any indication, I think there is a video to be made.

European sensation Punjabi MC has enlisted one of the hottest rappers this side of the Atlantic, Jay-Z, to make a guest appearance on the remix to his smash hit, "Beware Of The Boys (Mundian To Bach Ke)." The song features a mixture of a bhangra breakbeats and a sample from the theme music of the '80s hit television show, Knight Rider.
"Beware Of The Boys" will be rereleased domestically by Sequence Records in the coming weeks, but in the meantime the remix featuring Jay-Z has already made its way to urban radio.
