Put Down The Desi Daroo And Support Your Local Music Artists



support-your-localI wish I saw more of this! Speaking from personal experience, why do people not support local artists? I’m talking about the South Asians mainly. If you look at the white kids, they absolutely love their local artists and bands. They would do anything to support them, have it be a concert at a local dive bar, a radio-hosted event, an appearance at t nightclub – you name it. I just don’t see this happening in the South Asian community, mainly with the younger South Asian generation.


Rapper. Singer. Video Productionist. Photographer. Shar S.



Our featured artist of the week: Shar.S.


This man can do anything. Rap? Yes. Write. Yes. Sing? Yes. Videophotography and Photography? Yes and Yes.

Shar S. is from the Central Valley/So Cal in California, but his hometown is originally from Patiala, Punjab *ahem, that would also be my mom’s hometown*.

He has the look, the voice, and the vibe to be the next big superstar? Perhaps.

Big Ups to Shar .S. for putting CALI on the map!

Urban Desi Radio’s favorite pick of the week is his song, “Akhiyan” music produced by Desi Routz. Loving the urban European-desi style vibe of the song.

(You know I am a sucker for romantic ballads. This track is #1 on my list right now) It is hot!

Catch him at: You Tube , Sound Cloud  or download the song on iTunes now!

When Mandeep did this interview, on Desiclub.com, the originally album name was “Punjabi Rap Star” so don’t get confused the beats he played for Mandeep… it’s really from “Da Rap Star” album…
