A musical and social phenomenon was taking root amongst Britain’s Asian community during the early 90s and 00s. One where pockets of creatives were developing a sound that paid homage to the pleasures, pains and politics of second and third generation Asian ex-pats. From the remixes of classic tracks to the creation of drum and bass, this aural movement is remembered for its ability to encapsulate a community and celebrate its cultural identities through the soundscapes of Bhangra.

The final episode of Music Nation airs on Channel 4 tonight at 12.00am
