Apache Indian – Boom Shack-A-Lak

Concluding my posts of artists of Indian Origin, this was a childhood favourite of mine thanks to my eldest sister.

Apache Indian, born Steven Kapur on May 11, 1967, is a renowned British-Indian musician and singer-songwriter who rose to prominence in the 1990s with his unique fusion of reggae, Indian, and dance music. Hailing from Handsworth, Birmingham, UK, Apache Indian carved a distinctive niche in the music industry by blending elements of his Indian heritage with the sounds of reggae and dancehall, earning him international acclaim and a dedicated fan base.

His breakthrough came with the release of his debut album, “No Reservations,” in 1993, which featured hit singles like “Boom Shack-A-Lak” and “Arranged Marriage.” With infectious beats, catchy melodies, and thought-provoking lyrics, Apache Indian’s music resonated with audiences worldwide, transcending cultural boundaries and paving the way for a new genre often referred to as “bhangramuffin.”
