This week on the show I speak to the legendary bhangra band Achanak. Recording the interview at lead singer Vijay’s home along with band manager Ninder Johal and Amar Johal. In February 2016 sees the launch of their 13th studio album from the 6 piece bhangra band.
‘The process has been very intensive – trying to fit in recording the album whilst touring. We have also had to endure the highs and lows of the creative process as we have refined and in some instances dropped completed tracks because we were not happy with the final product’ admits Vijay. The album has also allowed an opportunity for 21year old Dhol player Amar Johal to produce 6 tracks on the album. Incidentally he is also the son of Ninder Johal. LISTEN HERE
A very special thank-you to Achanak for joining us this week.
