Rytmiaalto #7: Bhangra & Bass

Combine the beats of Boom Shakalaka djs Rideon and Hermanni with the made for dancing sound of Shava playing a fusion of Bhangra with a twist of Finnish countryside nostalgia, and it cannot be but a party!

Shava is guaranteed to be the world's only Finnish bhangra group. Shava plays music which is meant for fun and dancing, and Shava's gigs are a proof that their unique blend of Bollywood-bhangra dance beats with Finnish attitude and language works perfectly to free your mind and your pelvis and to make you get up and dance.

Bhangra is originally an age-old Indian folk dance from the Punjab. With the Indian diaspora it has spread to Britain and the USA where it has become an international urban cultural phenomena. Modern bhangra music is a fusion of latest pop and underground trends with the earthy Punjabi rhythms.

The group's name bears no complicated philosophical meaning. Shouting «shava, shava» is normal behaviour for Punjabis having a good time, and it is something the band is trying to teach to Finnish audiences.

Boom shakalaka is a club specialised on uplifting and positive dance music from around the world.
