MetadataShow full item record
Bhangra is a lively form of music that was Originated in Punjab region in Southeast Asia. Traditional is a fusion of music, singing & the beats of the dhol drum, a singled stringed instrument like: Iktara, Tumbi & Chimta. As it creating & expressing new identities in the globalizing world. The idea is to communicate a cultural phenomenon as how Bhangra is transformed by Overseas Punjabis, As every one knows that bhangra got its own significance & place in culture of Punjab, India & Overseas as well as. Though it moves into mainstream culture & Punjsbi people have become more global & advance. Which effects on the second generation? How ever, the people who migrant from Punjab have had s effect on Western Punjabis & Now Bhangra have become global & gain popularity in Overseas as well. As I have diaspora are interpreting & expressing these new forms of culture. My more stress is the circumstance, conditions affecting the chance of people of Punjab and overseas also, who are forgetting their originality. Specially a second generation, they all like remix, thrilling songs, which have changed authenticity of bhangra. They like Punjabi songs, which got really its meaning. Even overseas Punjabis counterparts also come in motion by listening the beats of dhol even though they don’t know the meaning of the lyrics. However I have taken up personal interviews of different types of people, interact with them, and finally I have divided three sections Rural Punjab, Urban Punjab and Diasporic Punjab. I have tried to show the changes have taken place with the pace of time. I have tried to compare the variations by audio, video, photographs, text and categorized the views of the people, personal interviews and Punjabi songs in form of multimedia design. However, bhangra has brought the people of Punjab very close to non Punjabi communities, Though this is an achievement through which globally we have come together in Socially, Culturally and Religiously.
