Basement Bhangra w/ DJ Rekha, DJ Petra, and visuals by Fictive

Over the course of its run at SOB’s, Basement Bhangra has made an indelible mark on New York’s clubland as one of the city’s most culturally diverse and consistently high-energy dance parties. In that fifteen year span, Basement Bhangra has hosted live performances from a who’s-who of the genre’s top performers, including bhangra legend Malkit Singh, Bally Sagoo, Bikram Singh, Hard Kaur, and Apache Indian, who performed at this year’s Basement Bhangra Thanksgiving Eve special. Another longtime friend of the party is the infamous Panjabi MC, who will be performing at the party’s debut at Le Poisson Rouge in January. Basement Bhangra has been regularly featured by media outlets including the New York Times, Fader, Wall Street Journal, Paper Magazine, Japanese TV, CNN, Nightline, and NPR.


DJ Rekha is an eclectic DJ, producer, curator and founder of Basement Bhangra™. She was named “Ambassador of Bhangra” by the New York Times as well as “one of the most influential South Asians in the United States” by Newsweek. She was the Sound Designer for the OBIE winning Broadway Show, “Bridge and Tunnel.” Rekha was the Associate Producer for the NPR Radio Documentary, “A Feet in Two Worlds”. Her debut album, “DJ Rekha presents Basement Bhangra” was released on Koch Records in October 2007. She has curated shows for Central Park Summerstage, Creative Time, and Celebrate Brooklyn.
