We were lucky enough to bring the Phoolz back together this season and bring out some sets that focused on one thing: entertainment. Our goal was to make the audience smile and dance with us, and I think you'll see that in our set creation.

There are tons of credits due for KPGD's performances coming together at Boston and Bruin, and without their help our team wouldn't have had the enjoyable experiences on and off stage that we did.

We'd love to hear any feedback you have on our sets and dancers!

Below, I have copy-pasted the description we sent to GabrooTV for our Bruin Video - it is the most important part of all this.

Khirre Phul Gulab De came to perform at Bruin Bhangra 2016 for many reasons, but they had even more reasons not to attend this competition. In the past few months, the members of this team have dealt with many, many setbacks, but none so prominent as the loss of their teammate, dholi, DJ, and brother, Anooj Kumar Trivedi. Anooj was a member of KPGD when it first began in 2010, and had danced with many of the team members on Gajjde Gabroo and Gajjdi Jawani before that. His talents extended far from simply being an amazing dancer, dholi, and music production artist, as he was a genuinely kind-hearted soul who was always the source of entertainment and positive energy to all those around him. Khirre Phul Gulab De dedicates this performance in his memory, to a flower who didn't get the chance to fully bloom, to the person who reminds them how short and precious life is, and that we can and will push through anything and everything, for it is a privilege to be here. The tribute to Anooj Trivedi done at the end of this routine was not officially part of the routine, and KPGD asked not to be judged on it. His presence was felt with us that night and forever will each time we step onto stage.

Looks like quite a boss lineup!


I expect choosing a top 3 out of Buckeye, MBT, UNC, and CMU is going to be really tough.

Here is our performance from this past weekend. We would like to thank BAB committee for a great competition, as well as Hardeep Singh for tying all our paggs. Vic from SGPD tied 2 of ours as well, and that helped us out alot as well.

The mix was made by Anooj Trivedi (AKT Productions) and he did an amazing job, especially under a time crunch.

Constructive criticism would be great to hear!

Main Bhangra Discussion / feet touching props?
« on: May 30, 2012, 04:54:52 PM »
can i get a somewhat general opinion on this? i get confused when i see a performance from team A who gracefully moves a prop out of the way with their foot while dancing and people go crazy saying how sick that persons stage awareness is, but then if someone is setting up stage and softly nudges a prop over to its marker i see people being like "wow you dont know anything about bhangra".

ive also seen performances where a team will use their feet to kick a prop up or something (examples are bmw at bruin i believe a few years ago and fauj at bayside this year), but some times people say wow thats disrespectful and sometimes they dont care.

i personally feel like if a prop is moved with someones foot and it wasn't done maliciously (as to purposely show disrespect, anger, etc) then its straight, but thats just my opinion. i just wanted to know because ive been confused about it and how judges would handle it, etc.

Main Bhangra Discussion / want to help KPGD compete again?
« on: March 25, 2012, 01:46:09 PM »
one of the biggest issues that khirre phul gulab de has with competing is money, and we are currently saving up to be able to compete this summer.

many of the dancers on kpgd compete with "nc state bhangra" and are competing at usc-aag ki raat competition next weekend.

if you go to the link below and simply "like" the comment on the page that says "NC State Bhangra", they can win a free hotel room, which honestly means a whole lot when it comes to gas money or paying for hotels for our next competition.

nc state and kpgd receive NO school funding, as compared to other collegiate teams who recieve quite a deal compared to us.

just simply go to the link, like the first comment under the post (NC State Bhangra).

If you vote we will be greatly obliged!

I brought this up in the PCBCA from Elite 8 video thread but thought I would get more answers if I made it a question here. When watching PCBCA's set from Elite 8 vs SGPD's set from the same competition, I noticed a few key differences:

PCBCA - Cleaner, more "folk" execution of some moves (though some of that is opinion but overall I feel), more uniform dancing, less gimmicks, never going crazy fast or buckwild with energy but keeping enough to make routine look good

SGPD - very innovative, fast paced, some dancers have more nakhra/swag in some moves than others (slightly), people going buck here and there, gimmicks, etc.

I was wondering what truly set these teams apart? I may sort of be answering my own question here, but if two teams go head to head with one being a cery clean, folk team, and one being more focused on entertainment and energy, which ends up being more important? Is sacrificing cleanliness for some faster paced segments worth it? Is not doing certain segments like jattan, mirza, luddi, etc in place of adding in a gimmicky aspect to a different one worth it?

I dont know what I am exactly asking here sort of thinking out loud but lemme know if anyone has similar/conflicting thoughts :)

if anyone has a video of us from bayside, please send it to so we can post up the best view we can find

Thanks to the Girik and the FCB boys Sid, Ram, and Sumir, for pulling through nicely for a couple hours of practice. Thanks Jasmeet to tying our paggan here and at UBC, you did amazing, and we owe you.
