Ravi and Harpz will chat to some of the stars of this year’s festival alongside soaking up the atmosphere and tastes from the food stalls and learn some Bhangra dance moves from the Apna Punjabi Virsa Bhangra troupe and of course hearing from the people enjoying the South Asian beats.

Viewers of the show will also see Ravi head to the Tramway in the city's Southside where the first-ever Glasgow Mela was held in 1990 to coincide with Glasgow being the European City of Culture. 

Originating from Sanskrit and meaning “to meet” the concept of Mela has developed to represent a coming together of many from varied cultures to celebrate their shared diversity.

It has now grown to a massive outdoor event which attracts tens of thousands of visitors and dozens of artists and performers each year.
