This is the first-ever feature I'm doing on a British Asian rapper. And about time too. Here's to hoping it's the first of many more...

  20 year old 'Da Sargeant' is rapper & musician
  Sam Daniel from East London.

  He released 'Yeshuve (Bhangra Remix) yesterday
  (30 June 2012) following up on the original version
  released last December.

  The remix features rappers and singers combining
  five different Indian languages (Punjabi, Malayalam,
  Tamil, Hindi & Telegu), as well as English.

Diverse Indian Artists

"I specifically gathered together the artists from different parts of India so we could collectively reach out to a wider audience back home in India" he says. "'Yeshuve' simply means 'Jesus' in Malayalam, a south Indian language".

Da Sargeant himself comes from a Tamil background, but after a God-given vision he decided to step in the gap as a role model for Malayalee youths as well as Indians in general.

'Artwork of Unity'

In the original version, the song's chorus was in Malayalam, but the remix's chorus is in Punjabi (hence the title 'Bhangra Remix').

"This sole purpose of this remix is about one nation coming together for one name", continues Sam. "It's about creating an artwork of unity and proclaiming the faith of these rappers and singers to the people back home who many have not heard of Christ or have not accepted Him yet".

The Single is out now on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Nokia Music and other stores.
