The migrant story impacts people. It also impacts culture. For young people who are trying to find their identity, they rely on tribal instincts to find a sense of belonging. So many #desiyouth living in western countries such as USA, UK, Europe, Canada, Australia, South Africa or other diaspora communities would lack role models who look like them in the mainstream media. Often in the 70s, 80s and 90s there was a great deal of racism that occured. In places like Southall, West London, there was a group of people who formed the #SouthallYouthMovement who rallied together to represent the unrepresented ethnic minorities to fight against the BNP and National Front. Back then the Reggae genre used music to speak of the injustice that occured whilst UK Bhangra bands were experimental they didn't really become confrontational. We'll explore the reasons why Reggae and UK Bhangra fused in the subsequent years later. We'll speak to the creators to understand what the intentions were at the time. I'm keen to document the truth about the decisions that were made. The youth of tomorrow should know the stories of our seniors. History tends to repeat itself so better to be prepared in the future and really base our sense of identity on truth.
