  2. DJ SWAMI produced cutting edge live electronica whilst the finest musicians of Punjab brought the audience raw, traditional sounds straight from the fields of Punjab. Traditional folk songs featured, including the love story of "Heer" and the classic "Jugni". The combination of these two sounds symbolised a meeting of worlds, a celebration of Diaspora and the union of music - something that goes beyond time, land and culture. The multi-talented Punjabi musicians were Vijay Yamla, grandson of legendary Yamla Jatt, Naresh Kukki, Dheera Singh and Gurtej Singh.
