Presented as part of Birmingham Indian Film Festival. A rare double bill screening of Asian Vibes on the big screen, providing a definitive guide to the birth of two iconic music movements.
Asian Vibes London
From the rubble of race and class conflict in the 1980s emerged a new breed of British Asian artist - politically sensitive, culturally complex and musically radical. Realising the need to develop their own voice to reflect the aspirations and fears that were relevant to the evolving British Landscape, these young men and women developed a style of music and fashion that would go on to define and inspire future generations
Asian Vibes Bombay
In Mumbai what was old was made new again as an emerging DJ culture in the 70s rewrote Bollywood film music. This electrifying documentary explored new forms of sound emerging from the frenetic metropolis. From rickshaw drivers flexing their bass speakers to dissident hip-hop DJs merging turntables with tablas, Asian Vibes Bombay is a pop riot.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion.
