Born into a family of Indian origins, DJ Steven Kapur aka Apache Indian is all set to set the stage on fire, once again.
Born and brought up in Handsworth, West Midlands, a racially mixed area with large Black and Asian communities, and home of reggae bands such as Steel Pulse, Apache Indian is making a comeback.
His new album Home Run is a compilation of new and old Hindi and Punjabi tracks.
What makes it so unique is that Apache Indian has joined hands with maestros of the Indian music industry, including Asha Bhosle and A R Rahman.
Apache Indian says: “I decided to sing a couple of my personal favourite tracks with the artists for this album. There are some pretty old songs which will really appeal to the younger generation. I wanted to celebrate India's musical past in a new style.
“I wanted to create something that would appeal to both – the people who have appreciated my music when it first hit the music industry and grew up listening to it as well as the younger generation of today that likes the bhangra-reggae-rap genre.”
He has already bagged so many awards, including Best Newcomer British Reggae Industry Awards 1990; Best Newcomber Reggae Awards 1991; Best Newcomber Asian Awards 1991; and Best Male Newcomer British Reggae Industry Awards. Only this year, he was presented with UK Asian Music Awards – Lifetime Achievement Award 2011.
