Apache Indian & The Soldiers
Apache Indian arrived on the British and Indian music scenes in the late 1980s, with a pioneering new club sound which came to be known as bhangramuffin. Fusing Punjabi lyrics and sounds with Jamaican patois, bhangra and ragga, Apache's lyrics have also earned him much respect with people of all colors.
His first top 10 international hit came in 1990 with Boomshackalak and he quickly gained recognition winning Best Newcomer (Asian Awards and Reggae Awards, 1991), four nominations for Brit Awards (1993) and Best Male Newcomer (International Dance Awards 1994). Several of his albums went Triple Platinum in India (No Reservations, 1993; Nuff Vibes EP, 1994 and Make Way for the Indian in 1995).
Hits such as Arranged Marriage, Chok There, Movie Over India continue to get airplay on radio and TV worldwide. More recently Apache has recorded with such reggae luminaries as Luciano, Frankie Paul, UB40 and Shaggy, as well as Indian greats including Asha Bhosle, Malkit Singh and A R Rahman.
Apache's Karma album, released 2000, met with great critical acclaim and continues to preach the gospel of religious tolerance, equal rights and justice for all.
