She is an Indo-Arabic songstress who has performed on the Lara Croft Tomb Raider 2 Theatrical trailer and Charlie’s Angels 1. She has sung on club hit 66 Meters and the Prodigy’s million seller Smack My Bitch Up. She is hot and she is Shahin Badar.

They asked me for a demo tape and within a week, I was recording; there was not even an audition,” says a beaming Badar. “My chant went on to become an anthem and it also became a trademark for Charlie’s Angels and Lara Croft which was a fantastic feeling,” says Badar, whose favourite singers include Abida Parveen and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
She is going to be a featured singer on Mundaya, Tim Deluxe’s next release from his well received album ‘The Little Ginger Club Kid.’
bq. When I first heard this track I felt it wasn’t very original. It seemed to have the usual predictable pumping house beat and atmospheric build up to get you raving. However it’s a great tune to drive to. It has lots of wonderful samba rhythms and Eastern bongo beats to let your mind drift along happily. The vocals are what really captivate you. Shahin Badar made a name for herself on Prodigy’s ‘Smack Your Bitch Up’ and is equally enchanting on this record. I love the world feel on this track. It’s progressive in that it’s using world flavours and creates an effective house track, however it uses the same tried and tested formula of house music to make it quite predictable.
