    People must have forgotten these singers who became overnight rage with their first album two decades ago.

    Colonial Cousins (1996) - This album broke all records including hitting platinum sales in India. The duo also won the MTV Asia Viewer's Choice Award and then later on collected the US Billboard Viewer's Choice Award too. The song "Krishna" won the Star Videocon Award for Best Music Video. The exceptional Indian and Western music fusion generated a new genre of music and won hearts of millions of music lovers worldwide.



    A beautiful song above, created by this duo in 1996 - describing clearly why the world is breaking up into pieces.

    Steven Kapur, better known by the stage name Apache Indian, is a reggae DJ. He is noted for a distinctive vocal style that is a fusion of Indian, Jamaican and English cultural elements. Apache Indian was the earliest Asian origin to make an impact on the UK charts with a series of hits during the nineties

    Apache Indian has recorded with Wreckx 'n' Effect, the United States chart topper Sean Paul, Maxi Priest, General Levy, Brian and Tony Gold, Shaggy, Yami Bolo, Boy George, A. R. Rahman, Sameera Singh, Asha Bhosle and Pras of the Fugees, Malkit Singh, and, more recently, with Jazzy B (self proclaimed as the Crown Prince of Bhangra) on the album Dil Luteya, StereoNation, Bally Sagoo, Raghav, and Jim Beanz. He has also recorded a song with Mukhtar Sahota on the album 4 The Muzik, with backing vocals from Am'nico.

    Reggae singer Sean Paul, who has been on the top of Billboard charts with his single with Beyoncé Knowles, toured the U.S. with Apache Indian.

    For his first album No Reservation, he had signed a recording contract worth £250,000 with Island Records – one of the largest sums paid for a debut album by a non-white artist.

    "Boomshakalak" is featured in more than eight different Hollywood movies, including Dumb and Dumber and Dumb and Dumber To. It is also featured on the soundtrack for Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, along with artists such as Fatboy Slim, The B-52's, 2 Unlimited and New Radicals and the movie "Threesome".

    Leaving his music aside, personally I have always thought the man very confused about his identity.

    Don't get me wrong- I listen to Indian music most of the time. One of my personal quirks is that I dislike English lyrics being added to Indian songs. To me, it isn't Indian music if it's got English lyrics.

    There are many aspects to it.

    One is Composers want to sell the music to the international world. If by chance any foreigner stumbles on to the Indian song, he may be carried away by the composition of the song. And what will catch his interest & get him humming or later recall the Indian song is with these English words.

    Another angle to it is Indians want to show the English composers, we can give ear soothing melody to the blank & loud most English songs. You never know, a time will come when Indians will be preferred for composing & directing the English music. Also considering the population of India, the market is big, so internationally India is considered a highly potential Market. So a Indian touch will give more exposure & commercials for the international venture too

    Many Indians are talented & Musicians & Film Makers are hungry for fame & money. For Eg. AR Rahman is gone international. That's reason you can see many international singers & actors are roped into Bollywood
