Things Indian are becoming more and more integrated into the U.S. mainstream lately:
Dhol players rocked the Academy Awards in 2010, while popular nightclubs now
feature Punjabi dance music.  Since its launch in 1997,
Basement Bhangra has forced
club-goers to sit up and take notice of Punjabi-rooted Bhangra,
rapidly making the outsider art-form an essential part of the club scene.
As Basement Bhangra‘s success comes to Los Angeles,
learn about bhangra’s early roots in fields of Punjab to its migration to the UK and
onto Hollywood.  From some ’80s hip hop laced recordings of
folksy tracks to Panjabi MC’s cult classic, remixed by beat dropping Jay-Z,
tune in for established tracks that get amped for American ears.
