Asian Indian Cultural Dance


Asian Indian Group Punjabi Bhangra Dance

Students of DC Metro Punjabi Arts Academy (DCMPAA) will perform the Group Punjabi Bhangra Dance.

Bhangra is a lively form of folk music and dance by Sikhs that originates from the state of Punjab in India. Traditionally performed when celebrating the harvest with people singing lyrics, at least one person playing the drum, and other people possibly playing the flute and/or other musical instruments. While Bhangra began as a part of harvest festival celebrations, it eventually became a part of such diverse occasions as weddings and New Year celebrations.
