Director of Oriental Arts features on BCB radio, Bradford

The Changing Bradford exhibition and book are definitely generating media interest! Yesterday afternoon Champak Limbachia, who is Director of Oriental Arts, was interviewed live on BCB radio, Bradford's dedicated community radio station. You can listen again by following the link to their podcast for Drive Time, Wed 2 Oct, the interview starts at 51minutes 40seconds.  BCB Radio interview. 

Champak was interviewed earlier this year by young people from the Changing Bradford project and his life story is featured in more detail in the Changing Bradford book. Yorkshire's art scene owes much to Champak who was the driving force behind the development of Bradford's famous Mela. He was the first to bring stars such as Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan to the city.
