Bhangra - South Asia
Bhangra is a style from the Punjabi region that joins Pakistan and India together. Artists blend traditional sounds like the dohl drum with hip hop and dancehall. The biggest proponent of the style in the U.S. is DJ Rekha, who has been throwing a party in New York called Basement Bhangra for nearly 15 years. When Jay Z covered Punjabi MC in 2003, it was a shining moment for the style in America.
