I’m so excited that our very own Masoom Chainani, captain of Cornell bhangra, will lead us in a bhangra dance workshop on Thursday!

A few reminders:

We will meet downstairs in Lincoln Hall in room B20. Please wear clothes that you can move in!

Reading: This is a pinch of background reading and viewing on bhangra

Listening: This playlist contains bhangra song-and-dances from Hindi films over the last fifty years. At a minimum, watch the first three songs, listening for the quintessential beat and sounds of bhangra:

  • “Rang de Basanti,”¬†Rang de Basanti (2004)
  • Cornell Bhangra at Bhangra Blowout 2015 (can you see Masoom??)
  • “Yeh desh hai veer javanon ka,”¬†Naya Daur (1978)
