Jalebi is a sweet, popular in countries of South Asia, West Asia, North Africa, and East Africa. It is made by deep-frying maida flour batter in pretzel shapes, which are then soaked in sugar syrup. In the centre of London’s Southall district, at 93 The Broadway is ‘Jalebi Junction’, famous for its fresh jalebis.

Through a series of ever-more colourful sections the song takes with it increasing sights, sounds, smells and tastes. The song plays with the sharing of ideas. The voice of the poet and the singer evoking half-sung melodies, the interrupting Sanyo radio transmissions, the Bhangra rhythms and the eventual unleashed vocalise at the end.
