BHANGRA BEATZ – (Eleven Slammin’ Bhangra Tracks!)[coll.] – [Naxos World]

aarbor   7/15/2020   A Library

An excellent collection of Bhangra tracks from DJs in the UK. Bhangra is the traditional folk music and dance from Punjab, the part of Northern India next to the Pakistani border. In the hands of DJs in the UK and elsewhere it has transformed into popular club and dance music. Often popular Bollywood songs are mixed into club dance hits using the rhythmic vibe of reggae, rap, and R&B. The dhol a 2 headed drum, is the rhythmic center of Bhangra, which came to Britain along with Indian emigres since the 1950s.  Bhangra apparently has made Indian youth outside of India more aware of their culture and heritage.


we haven't played it... yet

Fresh batches of new music are released to DJs every Wednesday evening, so check back in a few days.
