Desi Live - the ultimate live music experience is BACK!

Following on from our historic show celebrating the best of the 80’s and 90’s with Malkit Singh, Apache Indian & more - this next instalment focuses on the generation that really built on what the previous icons worked to establish - fusing their influences with the emerging sounds adopted from the increasing influence of Western culture & sounds that first and second generation kids grew up with. The U.K. became the international gateway for modern asian music & artists album sales and fame exploded globally as a result!

Desi Live have selected some of the most recognisable names of that era to present you with another unforgettable night of nostalgia!

O2 Shepherds Bush Empire : One of the most iconic venues in the UK, ‘The Empire’ has seen a who’s who of iconic artists, with everyone from Ed Sheeran to Sidhu Moose Wala having headlined it previously. Finally, this West London venue welcomes back this golden genre of music & era for one night only!
