Mark Strippel, Head of Programmes for the Asian Network, said: “BBC Asian Network is a leading platform for championing new British-Asian and global South-Asian music. Our events this summer, from our New Music Day at Maida Vale to London Mela and the Proms live from the Royal Albert Hall, demonstrate the unparalleled range, depth and quality of our output. The station is a central part of the BBC music portfolio and our position is stronger and clearer than ever. We have some amazing content to deliver to our audience this year.”
The jam-packed calendar of events kicked off today (July 3) at the Asian Network New Music Day.
