Pravesh Kumar on the Rifco Bhangra musical

1st May 2010



The artistic director of Rifco Arts talks to Suman Bhuchar about his latest project, Britain’s Got Bhangra (Stratford East/Warwick and touring), a musical composed by Sumeet Chopra which starts with 1980s sequins and evolves into R ‘n’ B fusion. He also discusses other Rifco shows. Recorded at the Theatre Royal Stratford East.

British Bhangra is unique to Britain – in India, Punjabi folk music is very different. So I wanted to tell its story.
