This summer, it’s all about Punjabi music (or as I like to call it, the marriage between bhangra and hip-hop.) Because how can a girl dance without some RDB? I had the opportunity to see them perform at Drexel two years ago. Amazing stage performers. Definitely among the best in bhangra.
From their website:
“Kuly, Manj and Surj are three brothers born in the UK. Even at an early age, they were playing indian instruments and singing along with their father. Drawing on their cultural sikh heritage and fusing it with different street genres of music, they constructed the “RDB sound”. The RDB (Rhythm Dhol Bass) brothers are pioneers in their field. Producers, musicians and singers, these siblings are truly amazing live entertainers. They have performed alongside the biggest names in Bollywood ; Akshay Kumar, Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai to the biggest names in the west, Snoop Dogg, Public Enemy etc.”
Or you can always go back to the basics.
Speaking of which, does anyone know anywhere in Philadelphia where a girl can get down with some Punjabi music? Real Punjabi music. Not this stuff.
