New Artist : DJ Rekha

NPR, I've found, is a really fantastic way of discovering new music, particularly in their All Things Considered feature.

This time, I came across DJ Rekha. I'm not the biggest fan of hip-hop, electronica, trance or anything like that, but I have had a good appreciation for Indian music, and she's got a wonderful blend of all of these.
Rekha Malhotra is DJ Rekha, out of London, and who's been playing since the 1990s.

She's recently released her first album, DJ Rekha Presents Basement Bhangra. Since '97, she has been performing at a venue called S.O.B.'s every month with something called Basement Bhangra, bringing an indian flavor to the New York music scene.
