Mastered: Indian Drumming
The UK Bhangra industry is a male dominated music industry which has excelled hugely since the 1980’s. But one group that has excited crowds from the UK and abroad is a female only Entertainments Team, called Eternal Taal.
Founded and managed by the award winning Parv Kaur, Eternal Taal has not only set standards in the UK Bhangra industry but has also broken through to the non – Asian main stream, performing to wider audiences and educating people about Bhangra music.
Parv Kaur is the daughter of Guinness Book Record holder (2011) Balbir Singh, who is the lead singer of a Bhangra band called Bhujhangy Group who started their musical journey in 1967. Growing up in a musical family, Parv soon realised that she would dedicate her life to music.
In 1999, Parv started her own Bhangra drumming classes called Eternal Taal meaning “Everlasting Beats”. Students from all over the Midlands joined and built a dedicated team that perform on the biggest stages in the world, such as Glastonbury Festival, House of Commons, Graham Norton show, LG ARENA, Dermot O’Leary’s 24-hour Dance-A-Thon for BBC’s Comic Relief 2015 and much more.
Parv Kaur’s work has been recognised globally and in 2010 she was awarded the ‘Contribution of Bhangra music in the UK’ award from the House of Commons.
