When two cultures intertwine, the results can often be beautiful. Such is the case with Bhangra music. Originally a style of dance and music limited to the Punjabi region, the music has spread across the world alongside the Sikh community. It has exploded in popularity in nations across the world. Combining traditional Eastern music with vibrant Western sounds and genres, Bhangra continues to blossom in popularity and is enjoyed across the planet.

The United Kingdom is the home of a fascinating fusion of cultures and styles. It’s this fusion which helped Bhangra grow and reach a wider audience. There are now many different types of dances performed in relation to Bhangra, though the music itself has evolved throughout the years.

Modern interest in Bhangra, as well as its modern evolution, can be seen as starting in the 70’s and 80’s. Nowadays, Bhangra is the fusion of Western pop and rock with this Eastern style of music. It combines traditional instruments, such as the Ektar and Chimpta, and primarily the Dhol and Dholak drums, with Western instruments such as guitars. One of the main identifying features of Bhangra music is the use of Punjabi for the lyrics. It remains a very popular dance music and is enjoyed by all kinds of people across the world, from the United States to the United Kingdom. In particular, Bhangra’s popularity has exploded thanks to its use within Bollywood films and to the cultural blend that allows people across the world to enjoy this vibrant and awe-inspiring music.
