About Band

Deshi Movement™ was named & created in early 2008 by Shahan Ali also known as Sh8s!™ as a revolutionary step into the U.K. Bangla Music Industry.

The initial idea was to form a solid group of singers and rappers who brought something new but also cultural to the industry.

"The name Deshi Movement came to me when I was walking home after recording 'Bangali Bhai' in Mogol's house with RD1" - Sh8s!™

"Deshi Movement was not a platform, was not a band, Deshi Movement was a group of individuals coming together with a different way of doing things" - Sh8s!™

In mid 2008 a legal agreement was made between Shahan Ali - (Sh8s) & Mogol Miah - (Mogz) witnessed by Hassan Muhit - (MC H) & Tamim Chowdhury - (Dougzy) which states that Sh8s & Mogz have the overall say in what is produced and distributed by Deshi Movement™.

Since Mogol Miah owned the studio and was the engineer and Shahan Ali controlled the creative and promotional aspects of the group it seemed fair by all parties.

Today Deshi Movement is apparently a platform and Shahan Ali has taken a backseat from the everyday running of the organisation, still part owner of the Deshi Movement he has established his own label under Konk Bak Recordz™ and is still coming strong with his creative genius.
