Panjabi MC update
Quick Note for those interested in the mainstreaming of bhangra and Desi sounds in America. Rumor has it that Panjabi MC has recorded a track with Jay-Z.. I haven't heard the song yet, so if anyone else has heard it, or knows where to find it, please let me know. MTV briefly mentions that the two have done a track here. (It however calls Panjabi MC, "the international dance artist MC Punjabi")

Just in case you didn't know, Panjabi MC's "Mundian to Bach Ke"--(Beware of the Boys Knight Rider remix) was the first Bhangra track to ever make the Top 10 in Britain--climbing all the way to number five. Because of the success of the track, he was invited to be on the famed British show "Top of the Pops." A clip of his appearance on the show can be found here.
