We are so proud and honoured that our founder and manager Parv Kaur has been selected as an ambassador of ‘Music for all’.
At Music for all, it is believed that EVERYONE should have the opportunity to learn to play music. Sadly, many people are not fortunate enough to have access to musical instruments or ways to help them to learn and discover. This is where Music for all and Parv come in.
At Music for all, nearly all of us are musicians, involved in the musical instrument industry or both. So we really know first-hand what an amazing effect making music can have on people’s lives. We see everybody from disadvantaged young people blossoming at school through to older adults discovering music, sometimes for the first time, much later on in life.
Parv Kaur will be taking part in various events, encouraging diversity and getting the wider community involved in various musical projects with Music for all. Not only has she already promoted Bhangra music over the last 25 years but has also development a firm foundation in establishing her own music over the last 18 years. In a very male dominating industry like the Bhangra industry, Parv Kaur has really taken a leap into success with extending her passion worldwide on platforms like The Glastonbury Festival, The West End, House of Commons, Bollywood and much more. Being UK’s FIRST Female Dhol Player and introducing UK’s first Female Dhol Drumming Team, Eternal Taal, Parv has embarked on a musical journey growing her team from strength to strength. By getting her foot into the industry, Parv has paved the way for other females over the recent years and continues to be an inspiration for many.
We can’t wait to see more of what Parv Kaur can bring to the young generations and how she continues to promote music worldwide.

Parv Kaur has been a name known in the UK Bhangra industry for the past 18 years. A young woman who began her musical journey in 1993, has made her mark in the UK as being the first female Dhol drummer. In 1999 she created a team that was the first of its kind – A female Dhol team, Eternal Taal. Consistently, with her dedication and diligence, Parv has built her team Eternal Taal from strength to strength, and it has not gone unnoticed. Her stellar achievements have been recognised by the likes of The House of Commons in 2010, Bollywood, Glastonbury Festival and continues to be recognised. She’s managed to accomplish all this alongside being a lecturer in computer science over the last 15 years and continues to achieve great success in her professional career too.
Recently, Parv Kaur featured on the BBC in a segment where they presented her 24 year musical journey to the world. This left her and her entire team extremely proud. The video has since gone viral and many articles have and continue to branch off from the video both from the UK and internationally.
Following on from this recent popularity, The Sikh Channel Aid have added to their happiness. Kaur has been carefully selected to be part of the 20 inspirational Sikh women to represent the UK for a run in Dubai. The Sikh Channel Aid raises funds for various humanitarian projects around the world, and this year have chosen Parv to help them. “I never go running. But when The Sikh Channel approached me I thought, why not? It’s for a great cause and I cannot wait to do my bit for charity. Eternal Taal did a sky dive for Khalsa Aid in 2013 and this is a great achievement to add to the list for the team” Parv added. It is an opportunity not many receive, and Parv is already tying her laces tight and training for her 5K run in Dubai on the 17th November 2017. Each Sikh woman taking part is encouraged to raise £1000 which will be donated to various humanitarian projects. Both Parv Kaur and Eternal Taal humbly request you all to donate whatever you can, however big or small the amount, for this brilliant project.

ETERNAL TAAL HAVE DONE IT AGAIN
Watch our 18 YEAR journey being celebrated on such a PRESTIGIOUS platform – BBC WORLD NEWS! Since establishing her team ETERNAL TAAL in 1999, our dilligent #Founder and #Manager PARV KAUR has worked and continues to work hard endlessly to abolish the stereotypical cliché’s in an industry that is MALE DOMINATED. Many people have come and gone. Many have tried to bring us down and may continue to. Many have said we’ll never succeed and many refuse to acknowledge our success.. But in this dillusional world of HATE and JEALOUSY, they fail to see that these remarks only drive us to ACHIEVE MORE and BE BETTER. Whilst many are content with their repetitive performing platforms, Eternal Taal refuse to be stuck in that boring monotonous circle and strive to #PROMOTE BHANGRA MUSIC to WIDER AUDIENCES. Our dedication towards this has given us the likes of #BOLLYWOOD, #BBC, #CHANNEL4, GRAHAM NORTON SHOW and much more – And this is by no means where we’ll stop! Hear Parv’s STRUGGLES and how she has OVERCOME obstacles that not many persist to overcome in this segment dedicated to this SUCCESSFUL WOMAN & her SUCCESSFUL TEAM.
Being an Established award winning female Bhangra team in the UK, we have strived to promote Bhangra music to a wider audience since 1999. Our hard work and growing recognition has earned us the opportunity to perform on some of the largest and well-known platforms such as, the Glastonbury festival and the BBC. However, now we have three Bollywood films to add to the list, allowing us to be referred to as the ‘Bollywood Dhol drummers’.
In 2012, we made our first appearance in Bollywood by featuring in the wedding song of the year, ‘Suit Tera Laal Rang Da’ from the Deol production, ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana 2’. Being surrounded by one of the pioneers of Bollywood, Dharmendra and his iconic sons Sunny and Bobby Deol, was a dream come true for us all. Many believed our Bollywood appearance then was just by ‘chance’.
Three years later our Dhol drummers brought the same energy, enthusiasm and this time, experience to Bollywood once again in the 2015 Dusserah release, ‘Shaandaar’. Working closely with the versatile actor Shahid Kapoor on sets during filming for the song ‘Raita Phail Gaya’ felt surreal. During this experience we conversed with the crew and stars on a more personal level. Two of our drummers were later flown to Poland to complete filming. By this point we felt part of the Shaandaar team and production family. Once again, seeing Eternal Taal on all leading Indian channels across the globe during various promos and being recognised by those around us was an incredibly proud feeling.
We didn’t have to wait too long before being approached by the production team of one of the leading filmmakers of Bollywood, Karan Johar for another Bollywood project. Our female Dhol drummers were invited onto the sets of what turned out to be one of the largest grossing box office hits of 2016, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’. As we made the journey to the filming location in London, we were instantly recognised by some of the crew as we’d worked well together in ‘Shaandaar’, feeling right at home. Knowing what was expected from us straight away made the whole process run smoothly. As with all the previous films we experienced something different this time too. In this project we were choreographed with Ranbir Kapoor and that is definitely a moment we will never forget.
No matter how many times we do this, we still feel the same excitement every time we see ourselves on the big screen. A lot of us have grown up watching these same stars on our televisions and to be sharing the screen with these same people is an experience that cannot be put into words. Once may be seen as chance, twice may be seen as luck but a third is most definitely destiny.. Eternal Taal look forward to our future projects.
UK’s First and only Female Dhol Drumming Team have performed at many high profile stages such as Glastonbury Festival, Graham Norton Show, BBC, Europe Tours and many more. However they are the only Bhangra Team in the UK to perform in THREE mainstream Bollywood films that were shot in the UK. The first was the Deol Production ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana 2′ starring Dhamendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol. The second Bollywood appearance was in ‘Shaandaar’ starring Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. And most recent performance for Eternal Taal was in the Diwali Blockbuster, directed by Karan Johar starring Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’.
These talented Pioneering Female Dhol Drummers are really taking Bhangra Music to the next level. From starting a Dhol Class in 1999 in 18 years they have established a worldwide presence in the music genre.
