Teaching Bhangra music
Above all, Bhangra is enormous fun. Even if your students have no real knowledge of Asian culture already, they will recognise it (and probably break out into some spontaneous dance moves). Its immediate, supercatchy appeal is what makes it such a winner as a KS3 project. It creates opportunities to explore melody and rhythm, how the style has changed over time and there is also plenty of cultural content to delve into.
