Bhangra Mini Mix

RADIO EXOTICA present: Bhangra

The cool cats of RADIO EXOTICA continue on their tour, introducing us to some of their favourite sounds from around the world. Following on from the recent Cumbia mini-mix, RADIO EXOTICA's Benjamin Power has put together a selection of his top bhangra tracks.

India has a rich musical history and Bollywood has become synonymous with Indian life. Singers in Bollywood, with a few exceptions, are playback singers who don’t appear in the films but have their own fans nonetheless: it is a unique industry. While bhangra is known for its modern sound, its origins are based in the more traditional folk music from the Punjab region. There’s such a wealth of music in India of varying styles, each with its own unique story to tell.

We start the mix off with some children’s songs, Bollywood-style, to ease you into the intensity and extravagance of true Bollywood. The Bollywood style of music is formed from the cinema style of the same name yet it is an industry in its own right with its own superstars; something very different from Hollywood. The disco style was introduced into Bollywood films through legendary film composers Bappi Lahiri, R.D. Burman and Biddu Appaih. Finishing with the ever popular and more traditional bhangra sounds, we bring you some of our favourite tracks, Panjabi MC being the most well known. We love his use of the bassline from the Busta Rhymes track Turn It Up (Remix)/Fire It Up. Please enjoy this mix dead loud, it’s the only way to listen to bhangra.
