Are you a fan of Bhangra music and would like to be able to create your own? Maybe be your own Bhangra band? If you have an iOS device, now you can. I saw this in the Vancouver Sun today, Pocket Bhangra (on sale for $1.99 until Nov 10th for Diwali) let’s you play, record, and save your own loops to make your own creations.
Created in Vancouver by programmer Paul Boparai, who is also a guitarist in the South Asian fusion hip hop band A-Slam, thought it would be cool to be able for people to create Bhangra on the go. So he recorded his friends playing tumbi, tabla, and dhol and made the app …
“Just playing with my bandmates and seeing them play these instruments, I thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool to make an app that has South Asian instruments,’ “
I just wish I had a lick of musical talent so I could justify getting this app. If any reader buys the app and creates something cool, let me know in the comments. I’d love to give a listen.
