Symposium: Back to Bhangra

Join the conversation

ZEE London Mela will present a symposium on bhangra in conversation with Arts Producer Sonia Mehta  and Kuljit Bhamra with artists from Sounds of Southall.

Join us to hear about the origins of bhangra in Southall. Ask your questions to the pioneers of the art form and find out more about both its roots and its future, ahead of the world premiere of the BBC's Pump Up the Bhangra film. Learn about how bhangra came of age through the people who invented it.


ZEE London Mela is committed to creating open and democratic spaces where the voices of people are led by their creativity and immersive practice, with the people, for the people. 

Where: Press Tent, Southall Park

When: Saturday 18 August, 2.30pm - 3.30pm

Due to venue restrictions, space will be limited and allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Last year, our symposium was on the subject of 20 Years of the Asian Underground, Past Present and Future. You can listen to that podcast here:
