Traffic on Hagley Road, Birmingham in 1966

Nice to see that in over fifty years, the traffic struggles haven't improved in the slightest! It looks like a complete free-for-all in this shot. 😅

Made in Birmingham: Reggae Punk Bhangra documentary

Watch Made In Birmingham: Reggae Punk Bhangra

This documentary details the development of Reggae, Punk and Bhangra music in Birmingham over a twenty year period ranging from from the mid ‘70s to the mid ‘90s.

The city is a conflation of culture and community, and nothing encapsulates that more than the music that has risen from it. Steel Pulse, Musical Youth, Apna Sangeeta and Au Pairs are just a handful of acts from a melting pot of local talent that continues to impact the world to date.

Explore the musical journey via interviews from members of such groups as they discuss the social and political issues experienced during their rise, and the reflection of the city’s diversity in the music they were sharing with the world. 

A truly great insight into Brum’s musical heritage!
