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.
