UK Bhangra Awards 2016
The UK has been at the forefront of the global Bhangra scene for many decades and is home to some of the worlds most iconic Bhangra artists.
Bhangra is fusion of music and dance which originates from the Punjab region of India and Pakistan. In its earliest form it was a celebratory folk dance which welcomed the coming of spring, or Vaisakhi, as it is known.
An annual red carpet event that celebrates and recognises the effort made by the UK's Bhangra Industry.
