Asian music has never looked so promising with the scene constantly welcoming new artists. From DJ’s and singers to Bhangra dance troops and producers, it seems that the worldwide celebration of Asian culture is well underway.
We spoke to Bhangra.org, the UK’s leading Bhangra website that provides itself as a hub of information for all Asian culture enthusiasts.
‘Having been spreading the word of Bhangra for over a decade we have seen year on year the progression that the art form has experienced, with many mainstream artists illustrating a love for Asian style’.
From universal hits like The Pussycat Doll’s ‘Jai Ho’ to Rhianna’s henna tattoo, we are constantly seeing European artists incorporate Asian ways into their acts.
