Punjabi Producer and DJ Bally Sagoo grew up with black friends in multi-racial Birmingham. He fused reggae with Bhangra to produce a unique urban musical style that would be a huge hit.

Pump Up the Bhangra is a celebration of the way young British Asians have found their voice and their identity through bhangra music over the past thirty years, fronted by BBC Asian Network DJ Bobby Friction.

It's a story of cassette tapes, corner shops and glitter-clad musical heroes, of teenagers bunking off school to attend secret daytime gigs and of generational culture clashes - as this underground scene became as popular among Asians as Wham and Culture Club were to the mainstream.
