Get ready to party Punjabi-style as RSVP Bhangra bring their bombastic performance style and groove-heavy tunes to a village hall near you. For anyone not in the know, Bhangra is a hugely popular type of dance music which meshes traditional Punjabi songs and drumming with electronic rhythms, creating a modern twist on old Indian and Pakistani celebratory performance. In summary, it’s simply tonnes of fun! Multiple percussive instruments, guitar and frontman Dildar's honey-drenched vocals create a sound that’s straight off the streets of a Bollywood movie; this is helped in part by the group’s flamboyant showmanship. Every show comes with an introduction to Bhangra dance and everyone is included, regardless of ability or age. It gives their gigs the atmosphere of a wedding or family party, so good cheer is a given. The group are well-established on the touring circuit and are old-hands when it comes to festivals, having performed on stages at Glastonbury and Womad for years. Their love of performance shines bright whatever the size of the show, and their ability to get audiences moving to the music is second to none. RSVP are spearheading the renaissance of live Bhangra in the UK, creating space for new audiences to hear this traditional celebratory music, so this would be a great opportunity to try something a little different.

'One of the hottest bands on the Bhangra scene.' Asian Time 'Their stage personalities are lovable, the Asian drumbeats are infectious, and the Western slant gives the crowd something unique to enjoy.' The List
