A lot. And we can't say it enough! We are a group of individuals from MIT and the Boston area who love Bhangra and are dedicated to exhibiting the energy and excitement that comes with it!
Bhangra is a high-energy and upbeat folk dance from the state of Punjab in Northern India. It has grown in style and popularity over the years and today is one of the most popular forms of art. Routines often include props and acrobatics. Bhangra music incorporates not only lively beats from Punjab, but also a combination of other genres and styles including pop, rock, and hip-hop.
Since our humble beginnings in 1991, we have grown enormously while adhering to our mission of exposing the community to bhangra traditions and culture. We have competed with some of the best bhangra teams in both the United States and Canada. We have performed at various showcases and at many of MIT's domestic events. Every summer, we teach bhangra to people in the Greater Boston area of all ages and skill levels. We also offer many services, including costume rentals and private performances.
We strongly believe in our mission of spreading and sharing the bhangra lifestyle. After all, bhangra knows no race, color, or ethnicity - only talent and passion.
