Basically, this is us, we have our own identity, culture but we're not scared of anyone else's... Asian D u b Foundation's A n n i r u d h a Das, w h o describes the group's mission as 'demystifying the role of Asians in m a k i n g music', also raises t h e question of politics and the expectations of the w h i t e media w i t h reference to w h a t Asians are or aren't supposed to do.

Awan (1994) claims that 'young Asians are much more interested these days in breaking into the mainstream market by producing a sound that appeals outside the Asian community without altogether abandoning their Asian identity'.

The group joi Bangla, of Bangladeshi descent and based in East London, for example, have expressed reservations about Bhangra's narrow Punjabi focus and instead use Bengali lyrics, as have Asian Dub Foundation. It is something of an over-simplification to see Bhangra as the one force uniting the disparate members of Britain's Asian youth.
