Part P-Funk, part Punjabi-Funk, BlackMahal is a San Francisco-based live music experience complete with drums, DJs, horns, hip-hop MCs, and godfather of the dhol drum Ustad Lal Singh Bhatti who's collaborated with the Black Eyed Peas, the Doors, and many other major artists.

BlackMahal is steeped in an Old California experience that started in the 1890s when the first Punjabi-Americans settled in the Great West and forged a new identity with elements of Mexican and African-American influence. It also represents the new California feel: hippy hybrid hip-hop and hysterical hi-jinks. The 9-piece band has rocked major concerts across North America including the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, with feature articles in Rolling Stone, Wired, and The San Francisco Chronicle, as well as rotation on BBC Radio 1.
