Star Night: Bohemia

Kirori Mal College’s annual cultural fest, Renaissance, came to an end with Pakistani American rap artist, Bohemia’s performance. While the show started late, the rapper more than made up for it by singing to his fans in the audience all his hits. As people in the crowd rapped along with him to Kali Denali, some were scaling the main building in a bid to get a better view of the artist. The Punjabi hip hop rapper sang his two-hour set with other numbers like Charso Bees, Ek Tera Pyaar, Jaguar and Dil. The concert was attended by over 5000 students from the University.

In between the songs, he talked about his experience growing up in California and his yearn to connect with South Asian culture as a young man. He included jibs at MTV and other artists in the desi pop and hip hop industry to loud cheers from the audience. Like always, Renaissance’s closing concert seemed to have been a hit and had won over the attendees.
