The blend of Punjabi, Bengali and Tamil folk melodies, Bhangra samples, breaks and wheel-ups has been blowing up clubs and festivals this year. But what is the heritage of the sound? Join members of the Daytimers collective as they tell the story - and spin the key tracks - of the British South Asian Underground. From the 'daytime' parties of '80s and '90s in Leicester, Bradford and beyond, to fundraising through musical compilations for last year's Indian Farmers Strikes and Covid Relief for India, learn about a music culture with deep social and political roots from some of its current leading lights.
