Nice mix Rohan! Really enjoyed the song selection. A nice combination of some older classic bhangra hits with newer songs. Respect for giving credit where it's due too!

The transitions could have used a little work & possibly varying the vocals a bit to make certain parts stand out more. I loved that you slowed some of the parts up and then brought up in faster songs. That variation in speed is something I love to see in actual sets & I try to encourage teams to do more.

Do you mind putting up a track list? Thanks in advance.

This is excellent! Thank you for sharing hooligansharma.

A few other valueable topics on judging criteria & score sheets are below:$$$$$$$$$$$$-comprehensive-judging-system-$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$/

I'm sure they are plenty more if anyone who is interested wants to search in more detail on BTF.

Love the diversity of dancing styles in that lineup! Should be an exciting event.

Great battle amongst the U.S. teams since Idols (happening a month before) is covering the Canadian teams pretty well!

Great song. I would love to find out too. I've definitely heard it before.

Hope someone here can help you my friend, otherwise it might be worth a try to to reach out to someone from GW Bhangra (or alumni).

Please post if you find out what it is sir!

~ Basim :)


+1 to what Daman said.

This is awesome! Scotland bhangra? Can't wait for the scene to build there.

Good luck with this Ashwin. Let us know if we can be of any help.

Hi Arti, welcome to Texas and the ATX!  :)

If you're looking for a team just within Austin, Texas Bhangra (part of UT Austin) is your only option.

There are teams in other places such as San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, etc.. but I am not sure if dancing on those teams will be a viable option for you, since doing everything over the web is quite challenging for the dancer and the team.

I'm in the Austin area as well these days, so hit me up if you need any contact info of teams in TX.

All the best,

~ Basim :)

Hmmm.. not sure if this is what you're talking about, but perhaps the lyrics are "ari ari ari hadipa.. ari ari ari.. ve teri meri ek zindadi?"

If so:

Bombay Rockers ft. Overseas - Ari Ari (Rock)

Hope this helps,

Awesome idea and intriguing product. I'm curious to know how they will stand the test of time and whether they will be able to retain their water repellent.

I can see you've already exceeded your goal on kickstarter, which is great. Just spreading awareness of the problems in Punjab is a big thing, so props on that mission.

Good luck with the venture Jaspreet,

Are you referencing a particular video, soundcloud link, etc when you're providing those timings? I don't see a link to anything.

It is an actual thing! We also have tandoori chicken pizza and butter chicken pizza. Well actually if you come to Vancouver you'll see that they put butter chicken on everything. You can get butter chicken on fries, sandwiches and even on some pasta!

Three things sir:

1) Those are pretty big allegations & statements you're making against two individuals who you specifically called out  in your post, yet your choose to remain unidentified??

2) Do you know what VIBC stands for? It's a BHANGRA dance/art celebration. It has nothing to do with the Sikh religion. Punjabi culture transcends just the Sikhs. No offense, but it seems that many Sikh followers have a tough time understanding this distinction as I see it constantly being brought up.

3) This is not the medium to voice your concerns about the DATES when a bhangra celebration is held. If you strongly feel that they should not held during the first 10 days or so of June when Operation Blue Star commenced & led to the Sikh massacre in 1984, then contact the organizers directly about altering the dates for next year. Arrangements for VIBC is planned WAY in advance, so you can't just expect people to shut it down or change dates last minute. If you want change, band together a group of supporters (who also feel as passionately as you about this date change), and discuss with the committee directly when they begin planning NEXT YEAR's event.

~ Basim :)

P.S. - I'm not affiliated with VIBC in any way, shape, or form.

Welcome to BhangraTeamsForum (BTF) mongish,

Not sure if you're a male or female.. or what type of team you're looking for exactly (i.e. all male, all female, co-ed, live/traditional, etc)... but here are a few similar topics that came up by typing "bay area" in the BTF search bar:!!!/

A few other teams in the area that I can think of off the top of my head:
Bhangra Knightz
Bay Area Bhangra Club
Cal Bhangra (Berkley, CA area)
Virse De Waris

The best way to contact them would be to search for their team name on Google, hit up their facebook page to get their contact info, or alternately if you search topics on here, you may be able to find a member from the team on BTF that can assist you further.

All the best,

~ Basim :)
