“For us, music and dance are an important part of DESIblitz.com. Especially, Bhangra content which highlights its amazing history, the hits and artists, moving into the present and future.
“The UK held the Bhangra music crown for decades. With a huge number of bands, live music and artists with large followings.

“As the leading British Asian online lifestyle publication, we would love to see a revival of Bhangra music in the UK as it once was.
“The country does have a tremendous amount of incredible Bhangra music talent and experience which needs to be encouraged and brought to the front.”
