Desi Hip-Hop is term used to define a rising cultural movement. The term is an umbrella phrase to cover all things “desi” influenced by Hip Hop, and all things Hip Hop influenced by "Desis." The movement started locally (and to an extent individually) in different parts of the world as South Asian populations migrated to the UK, USA, and Canada. The sounds of the culture first emerged in the late 80s, and early 90s from the UK.
