Bhangra

[ #4659 ]
Dear Log,

« For 20 years, Birmingham has been the centre of an ignored musical genre that sells in vast quantities worldwide. It's estimated that 90% of bhangra music emanates not just from Birmingham, but from one area of the city, Handsworth. Ibraar Rashid of Movie Box, a label that specialises in the Punjabi genre, claims a big bhangra album can sell 100,000 copies, more if you take into account piracy. It doesn't make the national charts because sales from Asian music shops are not counted, and stores like HMV and Virgin do not stock it. It may be Britain's ultimate underground music scene. »
