Move over, hip-hop. It’s time to Bhangra.
Thanks to the popularity of Bollywood films (Indian Hindi-language movies), we’re witnessing the rise of Bhangra and Bollywood dancing at weddings, dances and other social events.
Bhangra is a traditional folkdance from the Punjab region. Its lively beat and catchy movements make it fun to do. Bollywood dancing is a fusion of Bhangra and other Indian dance styles. I’ve been to a couple of events recently that included Bhangra dancing and it’s definitely a crowd favorite.
How hip is Bhangra? Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau showed his Bhangra moves earlier this year during a visit to India.
