London’s prestigious Victoria and Albert museum was a fitting location for a fusion of Bhangra beats, Bollywood bass and everything in between for their India Festival featuring super producers and Dj’s World Famous Panjabi Hit Squad.

Inspired by The Fabric of India exhibition which is a part of the festival, the V & A museum was host to ‘Friday Late’ which allows guests to explore the exhibition and celebrate India’s visual, material and music culture after hours including food and a bar.

Panjabi Hit Squad was on hand to provide the musical soundscape throughout the evening to a packed reception area with over 2500 guests. The evening started with softer rhythms from Bollywood but while the evening progressed it exposed Panjabi Hit Squad’s clubbier side and saw
them throwing out big dance-floor stompers mixed with numerous dashes of Hip Hop, House and Trap music while the crowd danced with their hands in the air.

The boys prove time and time again that with their ability to adapt and provide an eclectic mix of songs that they are at the forefront of the urban Asian music scene, Add to that their popularity within the music industry and you have a very powerful act.
Speaking after the event Rav, one half of the PHS duo said: “It was an amazing event. Having a party with so many people dancing to our music in such stunning venue filled with some of the most precious sculptures and artefacts is just mind-blasting”.

Rav’s collaborator Dee added: “We love performing to crowds who appreciate our culture and the mix of east and west. Playing music that is mixed with so many varieties of music, especially new house music and trap and just watching the crown react to it is awesome”.

The success of the event proved that Panjabi Hit Squad can deliver the party anywhere, even if it’s in a museum!
