About the Artist

Called the “Ambassador of Bhangra” by the New York Times, DJ Rekha is among the first DJs to merge classic Bhangra and Bollywood sounds into contemporary electronic dance music. In 2010, amidst laughter and applause at an Asian Pacific Islander reception, President Barack Obama said, “I want to thank DJ Rekha who’s been spinning a little East Room Bhangra for everybody, mixing a hip-hop beat with the sounds of her heritage, making a uniquely American sound that may not have been heard in the White House before.” On health care, Rekha has said, “I want some. It’s ridiculous. It’s amazing how sustainable energy is a good new business model. If only we could figure out how to do that with health care.”
