Of her next broadcast (Sunday, November 22), DJ Darla Bea writes:

“Join me tonight as we travel from Britain to India by way of the radio airwaves to learn about the electronica genre Asian Underground. From Britpop’s Cornershop to MIDIval Punditz to Punjabi producer, composer, and tabla player Talvin Singh, this music form is associated with various British Asian musicians (mostly Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and Sri Lankan) who blend elements of Western underground dance music and the traditional South Asian music.

Also included in our lesson is Raga rock, Bhangra music, Punjabi pop and worldbeat artist Charanjit Singh.

Get ready to rock out!”

“Rock It Properly” airs on Sundays in the fall from 8-10pm PST.
