Britain's Got Bhangra at Oldham Coliseum

WhatsOnStage logo
Award Winning Rifco Arts in co- production with Watford Palace Theatre and Warwick Arts Centre bring a brand new remixed Bhangra musical charting the rise of British Bhangra music from the sequin clad 80s through to the RnB fusion of the current charts. Twinkle arrives fresh from the fields of the Punjab with a song in his heart and no money in his pocket. Can his talent shine through or will the remixed bling of the 90s DJ ruin his dreams?

The hit show which played at the Lowry last June, features music by Sumeet Chopra (composer) who has written music and collaborated with many of the bhangra worlds stars including the Dhol Foundation, Punjabi MC and many Bollywood Movies. Lyrics are by Dougal Irvine whose award winning musical Departure Lounge has recently been performed in New York.

The cast includes Shin; the Lead Singer and driving force behind legendary bhangra band DCS, Rakesh Boury (We Will Rock You) and Rina Fatania (Deranged Marriage, Bombay Dreams).

Britain's Got Bhangra is at the Oldham Coliseum from 8 - 12 November.
