Bhangra originated in the 14th century and is a folk dance of the Panjab (a northern state of India), when the Panjabi wheat farmers danced and sang songs about village life to help pass the time while working in the fields. This ritual became a part of the annual harvest festival called Vaisakhi. No other dance from India is capable of matching the energy and intensity of this dance.
The vigour, vitality, speed and the synchronisation in which the movements are performed make Bhangra a highly enjoyable spectacular dance to watch. No other dance can come anywhere near Bhangra in sheer force and tempo. It is a dance of stamina and the Gabhru’s always take special pride in performing this everywhere.
Musical trends come and go, but Bhangra is here to stay.
