Mundian to Bach Ke--Summer Anthem 2003?

Just saw the Panjabi MC video for Mundian to Bach Ke on Direct Efects on MTV. Turns out PMC was at MTV’s Beach House, and I think this is a good sign for him and in preparation for his July 1 release entitled “Beware.” The album is a compilation of his older materials from when he began in 1993 with Mundian to Bach Ke actually being the newest track on the album.

What is really cool though is at the end of his segment, MTV had people ask PMC how to say certain phrases in Punjabi. The phrases consisted of “Can you buy me a drink,” and “We are in the Hamptons,” but it was cool nonetheless to see MTV and its audience get into some Indian language and culture.

I say this time and again, but it really is a great time to be young and South Asian.
