(Untitled) #97 feat. Vetted by Zeshan B

Born in Chicago to Indian Muslim immigrants, Zeshan Bagewadi’s musical identity was formed at the junction of two different worlds. Produced by Lester Snell (the legendary arranger for Isaac Hayes, Al Green, Mavis Staples), Vetted is a mixtape of Zeshan’s originals and lesser known 1960s and ‘70s deep soul gems. Belting out lyrics in English, Urdu and Punjabi, he pays homage to his Indian roots and his American upbringing. In this BFM exclusive, he speaks to Ezra about his debut album that charted #8 on Billboard's Top 10 Albums (World Music). We also hear what it's like to perform in front of two US presidents.
