Desi Soul vocalist Zeshan B is widely recognized as one of the most unique singers to come out of Chicago. Zeshan B blends the hard-driving rhythms and horn- heavy sounds of 1960s and 1970s soul with the angsty scats and vocal stylings of early Indo-Pakistani film with lyrics about unrequited love, urban despair, and oppression. This is a self-proclaimed, entirely new genre he calls Brown-Skinned Soul.
