Why is it that Virgin and HMV have whole sections for Salsa, Easy Listening, Folk, Gospel, Jazz, Cuban, Reggae, Metal, Soundtracks, R'n'B and Blues, but you can't find Bhangra there for love or money?

Ridiculous self-limitations set on both the part of HMV and on the Bhangra community. Hell, just a registrar of sales for Bhangra records sold in their traditional outlets (clubs, etc.) would make a world of a difference. Some of the singles alone would easily top the UK charts...

I buy a bit of Bhangra on-line, price comparing between http://www.asiansounds.com/ and http://www.cdguru.com/.

Says the man who appeared in a news story last year with a trainful of passengers noting his indiscression with said animal.
