Official UK Asian chart to launch

February 23, 2010

Swami, Croydon Mela 2009

The BBC Asian Network is to launch the first ever official UK download chart for Asian music. For any non-British readers, Asian to us means from the Indian sub-continent, so we’re talking India, Pakistan, Bangladesh etc rather than China, Korea etc.

The Official Charts Company (OCC), which publishes the mainstream UK top 40, will also compile the new chart.

Full details are HERE.

DJ Bobby Friction said: ‘Having an official chart is going to make a massive difference to Asian artists in the UK because, until now, they’ve not really understood where they stand in the grand scheme of things. They’ve had record shops and labels telling them of good sales but they’ve not been able to quantify them.’
