Bappi Lahiri and Apache Indian!

Bappi Lahiri, the music director who has rocked Bollywood with songs like You Are My Chicken Fry (Rock Dancer, 1995) and some genuinely melodious numbers like maanaa ho tum, behad hasii.n (Toote Khilone/Broken Toys, 1978), now plans to collaborate with the man who brought together bhangra, reggae, and Bollywood in a song called Arranged Marriage - Apache Indian. With help from a Viva Girl (Anushka), the item number will be called "Cabaret." Article here.

Now Bappi Lahiri's music has always had a global sensibility - remember, he is the baap of Bollywood music directors who derive "inspiration" from many musicians around the world. And if when he was bored of being "inspired," he went on to work with such stalwarts as Samantha Fox (for the film Rock Dancer) and Boy George (Love Story 98)! And Apache is no newbie in Bollywood - he's worked with none other than A. R. Rahman on a movie called Love Birds.
