July 3, 2018 0 Comments

Eternal Taal female dhol players and bhangra dancers have always had a unique element about their success since they were established in 1999. They are passionate about Bhangra and their achievement and success have been due to continuous self belief and hardwork. They vouch to take Bhangra to Global platform with their sheer passion. With the continued dedication and innovative ideas of Parv Kaur (Founder) the team has been blessed with opportunities many would 0nly dream of. It was then inevitable, that Parv’s diligence would not go unnoticed.

It began when Parv’s 25 year journey in the Bhangra industry featured on BBC World News in 2017. The video went viral across the world, giving her further global exposure. It didn’t stop there. She continued to hold her head high when she and her team were awarded ‘Best Asian/World Act’ at the Birmingham Music Awards 2018. Parv Kaur with all her success was surprised when, Channel 5’s Jane Mcdonald came at her classes in Birmingham.

‘Jane and Friends’ is a new TV series aired on Channel 5 and hosted by the singer, actress and media personality, Jane Mcdonald. Parv was approached by Channel 5 after expressing their delight with Eternal Taal’s work ethic and ethos. Assuming it was a usual performance at Dhol class, Parv didn’t think much of it. Little did she know that Jane was hiding in another room. She was astonished when Jane Mcdonald came bursting through the doors with her camera crew to congratulate Parv on her 25 year journey. The team were aware but Parv was oblivious.

Jane very quickly joined in with the teams atmosphere and even managed to play a little dhol and screw some light bulbs with the team. The BAFTA Award winning personality invited the team to join her on the sets of ‘Jane and Friends’ in Manchester. The team thoroughly enjoyed the experience and it is something they’d never forget.
