5. Junai Kaden

He’s a protégé of Mumzy Stranger but has a completely different swagger. Junai burst out onto the Desi music scene in 2011 with his smash hit single Aaja Mere Naal. This song took the South Asian music scene scene by storm and proved to the ladies he’s definitely a sexy singer with lyrics to only tease!

 

4. Lomaticc

Oh, Lomaticc! Not only is he a favorite with the ladies but, his passionate singing voice can put someone in a major love lockdown. He fits perfectly as Culture Shock’s lead singer with dashing boyish charm and a wonderful voice. Oh, and that jaw line – it’s a killer! Watch him in action in Culture Shock’s smash hit single Ex’ed Up.

 

3. H-Dhami

Smashing good looks. Check. An amazing singing voice. Check. A heart of gold. Double Check! Ask anyone who has met him, he truly resonates humility and elegant charm. He’s been a ladies’ man since day one and we don’t see that changing anytime soon. Get a sneak peek of his charm in our favorite H-Dhami song Haar Gabroo.

 

2. Imran Khan

Females often tell us how sexy he is. “He’s someone I would totally do naughty things with!” said one female fan. Well, you know what? We don’t blame her because there’s just something about Imran’s bad-boy persona and talent that attracts all types of females. Want a lil’ taste of his bad-boy flavor? Check him out in one of his sexiest music videos Bewafa.

 

1. Jay Sean

Jay Sean is a Grade A, certified ladies man! This guy has specialized in making the girls go complete gaga. Not only because of his striking good looks but, his amazing ability to sing  dreamy ballads that really send the ladies into orbit. Jay Sean has proven time and time again that he will always be in the hearts of most South Asian ladies! We can’t get enough of him in our favorite song Ride It.

Whitney Houston: A triple threat talent…

12Feb

POSTED BY

Screen Shot 2012-02-12 at 9.21.31 AM

I’m still in shell-shock over Whitney Houston’s death, I saw the breaking news story come up on my fb timeline. I googled it and all the articles confirmed the worst – Whitney Houston, Dead at 48.  Growing up in the 80s, there were two stars I always looked forward to seeing on the TV and they were Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. Their songs were truly iconic during that tremulous decade. Whitney had this caliber talent to carry a tune, to the point where most of us would of gone breathless – she could still harmoniously sync to the beat.

I’ll remember Whitney as a triple threat. She could sing, dance and act. As I mention on my facebook, if you are remotely BLESSED with one of those talents it can take you far – but if you have all three – there’s NO LIMITS to your potential. However the demons Whitney faced, like so many of our talented superstars were drugs. She coined the term on the 2002 Diane Sawyer interview “crack is whack” that open a can of worms for comedians to poke fun at her. Right now there’s silence, no one is laughing – all we hear is her amazing vocals coming out of our speakers, TVs, computers and smart phones.

People are suspecting the cause of death had to do with drugs, we won’t know until the coroner report comes out. In my opinion, I think her heart just gave out on her. Dr. Drew talked about addict recovery on CNN, if he had been treating Whitney, he would of advised her to take two years off. In 2010, Whitney told Oprah she was clean, I think she just bit off more than she could chew and it killed her. For those of us who have dealt with drugs issues, whether its our own or family/friends, the rule is take one day at a time. Sometimes planning ahead can lead to one’s demise.

I’ll miss Whitney. But like all great artists, her legacy will live through her music and talent. Be sure to watch the Grammys tonight, Jennifer Hudson will pay special tribute to Whitney Houston.

Special Thanksgiving treat… HDhami and Raje Shwari at SOBs

11Nov

POSTED BY

Picture 38

Basement Bhangra hosted by DJ Rekha is “New York’s best kept secret” for the underground party scene. On Thanksgiving Eve (November 24th) H Dhami and Raje Shwari will be performing live at SOBs. For the last couple of months, it seems like DJ Rekha has been supporting Raje Shwari, she dropped her new single – “Keep a Secret” at a Basement Bhangra night. Could this be a new comeback for Raje Shwari? Raje has been living under the radar after leaving Timbaland’s camp. Her “Indian Flute” had moderate success, but the thing about some Desi artists, especially females, they tend to get caught up with shady management and we never hear from them. H Dhami was featured on Raghav’s new single “So Much” (The Neo Desi mix) but his fans are waiting for his second album. Between 2008 – 2010, we’ve heard H Dhami on Punjabi By Nature’s “Crowd Pleaser” album and Mumzy’s single “One More Dance”

Is there an under current collaboration between H Dhami and Raje Shwari? How can the two of them benefit from each other? H could probably open doors for Raje in the UK Asian scene and Raje could kick open a mainstream door for H. It would be interesting to see H recite Magoo and Sebastian’s lyrics from Indian Flute.

All bow down to @HDhamiMusic

I think this pic was taken by Rishi Rish, here’s H hyping up the crowds at the Manchester Mela in the UK. The summer is filled with all sorts of melas, this a chance for the fans to get up close and personal with their favorite Urban Desi artist. The last time H Dhami was in the Bay, myself and Deeps we got to spend a lot of quality time with him after the show. I found him to be the most humblest individual in the scene, very polite with that cheeky sense of humor as well!

H Dhami is coming to the bay area!!! Mark it in your calendars folks… November 13th @ club illusions (Palo Alto, California)! H Dhami is a household name in the UK. The ladies are already going nuts over facebook status updates! One in particular made her point clear she wouldn’t forget her camera. For her sake, I hope she brings an extra pair of batteries! H Dhami was featured on Mumzy’s “One More Dance” this past July.
