JK says: “One time respect to Asian Network. I still remember the first time I went there to meet Bobby Friction over 9 years ago with Gabru Panjab Dha and I’m immensely grateful for all the support from Asian Network over the years. I’ve been fortunate to be able to perform on numerous occasions in the Desi City of Birmingham which has a big Asian music scene and loving fans. I’m excited and ready to perform my new material. It’s feels great to represent the Desi Bhangra Folk vibes on the big stage, so I feel blessed to have the opportunity to be showcased on Asian Network Live. What a fantastic occasion, not to be missed.”
Ben Cooper, Controller, Radio 1, 1Xtra and Asian Network, says: “It’s fantastic that the BBC can bring the energy and excitement of the Asian Network Live concert to Birmingham this year – listen to the station to hear all about the great artists and how you can be there enjoying it all.”
