Default Made in Birmingham: Reggae Punk Bhangra (1hr documentary)



'Made in Birmingham: Reggae Punk Bhangra tells the story and development of these three genres in Birmingham from the mid 70s to the mid 90s through rare and uncovered archive footage and interviews from those who were actually there.'

'Footage from bands like the Killjoys (pre Dexys), UB40, Steel Pulse, Musical Youth, Beshara, Swami, Apna Sangeeta, Au Pairs, Prefects, Fuzzbox and The Nightingales and others are interspersed with interviews with UB40's Brian Travers, Paul Foad and Pete Hammond from the Au Pairs, Musical Youth's Dennis Seaton, Steel Pulse's Amlak Tafari and dozens of others who highlight the social and political issues of the day and how the music of that time reflected the diverse communities of Birmingham, Britain's second biggest city.
This is a great insight into Birmingham and some of its rich musical heritage.'

Directed by Deborah Aston, a swish films production for the Birmingham Music Archive Birmingham Music Archive*|*Celebrating Birmingham's Popular Music History
