A giant of the musical phenomenon that is Bhangra, Gurcharan Mall has been at the heart of the movement for almost half a century, popularising the thunderous sound of the Dhol drums of northern India.
As the founder of the Punjabi Music Dance Academy he’s been organising workshops and performances in schools, colleges and art centres all over Britain and abroad since 1978.
He’s also been a key member of several influential Bhangra groups, including the explosively entertaining Dhol Blasters. “The music may evolve but the roots will always give Bhangra its strength and ability to appeal to people’s hearts,” he says.http://www.dholblasters.co.uk
