Indian music: Bhangra

Bhangra is a kind of music and dance from Punjab, a state in Northern India.  It is infectious and almost impossible not to dance to.  It involves a lot of jumping, shoulder shaking, and waving your hands in the air. 

Listen to or watch Rang De Basanti, from the movie of the same name.  It's also downloadable on iTunes. 

For inspiration, you can also check out this bhangra video, from a competition in the US. 

And this series by Pargat Singh Assandh on youtube teaches individual moves.

Get your bhangra groove on!
