Panjabi MC: The Album

Panjabi MC

Dharma Records

The Anglo-Indian rapper Panjabi MC had a massive international hit with the song “Mundian to Bach Ke,” making him perhaps the most generally recognizable voice in the Punjabi folk-pop fusion bhangra style. This album leads with that track, drawing the listener in with the familiar before heading down more explicitly hip-hoppy and dhol-driven, cinematic paths. Guest singers are everywhere, notably on the gorgeous “Ghalla Gurian”; every track unpeels a different layer of Panjabi MC’s complex musical vision.
