Bhangra Dance Party! Dj Rekha
BACK BY DEMAND!
Bhangra music was forged out of a combo of techno and Punjabi music. DJ Rekha is America’s foremost Bhangra DJ and the host of the long running Basement Bhangra party in NYC. Get ready to get down!
Born as Rekha Malhotra in London, England, in 1971, to parents of Punjabi descent, she was raised in Queens and Westbury, Long Island, and later moved to Brooklyn, which she now calls home. The popularity of her Basement Bhangra club night in New York made her a minor media celebrity regularly featured in local publications such as The New York Times, Time Out New York, Village Voice, New York Magazine, and The Fader, as well as on multiple episodes of NPR.
