“Keeping company with LV, San-J and their bhangra hip-hop friends was like being included in a three-day Indian wedding,” says writer Charles Foran. “I got to observe them in a range of settings and moods and develop a feel for their lifestyles and their Vancouver.
I like how much they laugh and enjoy each other’s company and how much they value family. I also like how at ease they are with who they are and what is important to them. And I really like their music, which is entirely Canadian, via the Punjab and England.” Foran is the author of seven books, including the novel Carolan’s Farewell, the story of an 18th-century Irish musician. He lives with his family in Peterborough, Ont.
