Bhangra: mystics, music and migration

Written by Hardeep Singh Sahota, this book explores the origins of folk song and dance from the Panjab in South Asia and its development into part of modern British culture in the hybrid soundscape of British Bhangra and beyond.

The book is based on academic research funded by the Heritage-lottery funded Bhangra Renaissance project. Through ethnographic research, oral history interviews, performances, photography, story-telling and community activity, it celebrates the past contribution of all those involved in Bhangra.

The University of Huddersfield Press is primarily an open access publisher. All five journals are available on open access, with two more to be launched in the next six months. Five books are also listed in the Directory of Open Access Books from the OAPEN Foundation

A full list of titles is available on the University of Huddersfield Press website.
