Drawing on archival material and interviews.
A new documentary – called The Birth of Punjabi Garage – tells the story of the rise of the Punjabi garage in the United Kingdom.
Co-produced by Yung Singh and Cameron Barnfield of the Ministry of Sound, The Birth of Punjabi Garage explores the rise of the species in the late 1990s, focusing on its development to date.
The short film brings together archival footage from the late 1990s and early 1980s, as well as a variety of keynote interviews produced in conjunction with Yung Singh.
“The documentary has a number of unobtrusive archive footage that shows exactly what it was like in the garages and studios of the young men of Bradford and Manchester from the beginning, to the events, weddings and festivals that marked their success,” the filmmakers share. .
The Birth of Punjabi Garage “Yung Singh and his iconic Boiler Room were booked, praising the seniors who paved the way for South Asia to continue its presence in British dance culture.”
It marks “the first documentary to explore the genre. The documentaries have covered Bhangra, the Daytimers of the 80’s and the Asian Underground, but the participation of the South Asian diaspora in the Garage scene in the early 2000’s has never been covered and that is why we are proud to bring it to you! ».
Singh himself notes this The Birth of Punjabi Garage it is not “a definitive story”, but instead aims to “provide a picture of how things started”.
