Focus piece - Bhangra, Mundian to Bach

Date: 13th Oct 2017 @ 9:22am

Bhangra fuses Western pop music, Hindi film music and folk music from the Punjabi region. Traditional Punjab drums and string instruments are fused with Western instruments such as electric guitars. The harmony is usually simple, with one or two repeated chords.

Bhangra is now used to describe a high-energy style of dance music developed by young Asians and performed at weddings, parties and clubs.

Mundian To Bach Ke by Panjabi MC uses a combination of electronic instruments and traditional Punjab instruments including the tumbi, a one-string fiddle which plays a three note riff. The song features a sampled bass line taken from the 1980s television series Knight Rider.
