Begum X is a singer, actor and highly acclaimed yoga practitioner. Her sensual vocals rip the air with a subtle concoction of jazz, blues and rocksteady rhythms. With a voice that not just reminds you of the greatest jazz crooners from where the magic begun, but also complements the musical style of Delhi Sultanate perfectly. !

Apart from their duo act they are also the lead singers of the MTV india award nominee The Ska Vengers, India's first ska and rocksteady band.

Delhi Sultanate is cofounder of the trust ‘Word, Sound and Power’ along with producer Chris McGuinness. The organization is dedicated to producing documentary films and musical collaborations featuring revolutionary singers from different parts of the Indian subcontinent. Word Sound and Power’s film Blood Earth won the Adolf Mekas award at Experimenta film festival and is being screened at the 2014 Berlinale film festval. The group has collaborated with Asian Dub Foundation’s Dr. Das, Jazz Steppa as well as Subatomic Sound System, Vienna’s Dubblestandart and India’s bass star Nucleya.


After playing with BASSFoundation a drum and bass, jungle collective from New Delhi since 2008, Delhi Sultanate decided to take the collective’s junglist sounds back to their roots. BASSFoundation Roots soundsystem is Delhi Sultanate’s solo project dedicated to roots reggae, with a strictly vinyl-only policy. Developed as a reaction and resistance to the new wave of dance music played off laptops with a ‘louder-the-better’ attitude, BASSFoundation Roots brings back to joys of vinyl and old school soundsystem culture. The dynamic range of reggae music is best conceived and experienced through vinyl, and Delhi Sultanate’s soundsystem plays a host of Jamaican genres including dub, rocksteady, rub-a-dub and 90s dancehall. Delhi Sultanate has also been busy this past year building a box of original dub plates from some of the biggest artists in reggae. These dub plates cannot be heard anywhere else and he is one of the only selectors to still press all his tunes on wax.
