Constructing Hybrid Identity: the Consumption of Brit-Asia Bhangra Music

Dr. Amandeep Takhar, University of Northampton, UK
Dr. David Chitakunye, AMA International University, Kingdom of Bahrain
We propose that the consumption of the Brit-Asian music genre plays a pivotal role in the lives of young British Sikhs in the UK. It acts as a sub-cultural force that reinforces the British Sikh identity, but also mediates cultural and intergenerational tensions, therefore acting as a catalyst for change.
