Variety of string and drum instruments like dhol forms the base of the music, with synthesizers and guitar spinning the new variety. Lyrics generally convey issues such as love, relationships, alcohol, dancing, and marriage. With changing times the music has also undergone alteration and has evolved with heights of popularity and innovation. Legends like Kuldip Manak, Amar Singh Chamkila, Malkit Singh, Gurdaas Mann and A. S. Kang have taken Bhangra to new heights. In the recent years Bhangra has enjoyed a surge in popularity across the globe, both in traditional form and as a fusion merging with hip-hop, house, and reggae. The music migrated from Southeast Asia grounds to Britain, rocking with pulsating energy much to the dismay of the purists.
