Apna Sangeet

Apna Sangeet were a British Asian Bhangra band from Birmingham.

The group was formed in 1984 by six Birmingham musicians. In contrast to the more western sounds of contemporary groups like DCS, they played a very traditional style of bhangra with a dhol player centrestage. By 1991 they were platinum disc holders, and held the title of UK Asian Pop Award for Best Asian Band.

By 1994, the group had released nine albums and sold more than 200,000 records, and were awarded Best Bhangra Band by Movie International Magazine.

The Stage in 1995 described the group as a "superband...who are virtually unknown to non-Asians".
