    Behavior at Competitions

    Just wanted to say that this may be one of the best threads we've ever had on BTF. Don't be disappointed if we don't get concrete results right away, the first step is voicing our concerns and standing together as a community against ANY type of violence and vandalism. With the proactive...

    Do you like live bhangra?

    Great thread and let's not forget the orchestrator-in-chief of a strong live set, the dholi. Jordon, once you dance on a live team with a strong/talented dholi, you will be changed forever my friend and bhangra will take a whole new meaning for you. GUARANTEED.

    Teams using cones to frame the stage

    This is a can-o-worms issue, no clear black/white answer but I do have a personal philosophy on this that I'm happy to discuss with you or anyone else privately. I'm curious to hear more thoughts! However, I think complex vs simple formations is a separate issue (and a way bigger fish). This...

    Teams using cones to frame the stage

    Solid thread master Saleem. If team A & team B had a set with the same amount of complexity/movement when it came to formations (and same number of dancers), I think the team that used less markers might achieve a few more technical points (if the rubric at the competition allows this)...

    Multani +1 If anyone wants to download for free (majority), do it. Don't knock someone who is standing up for the right thing. You'd be surprised to see that the "save the music" movement is slowly growing. Long separate discuss though.

    Best music set to date?

    Difficult question as sets improve every year but Shan-e-Punjab at Boston Bhangra was one of the sickest music sets to date. Does anyone have the video? :-\

    Food for thought: BlackMahal

    Ashveer, you're right. This project isn't being masqueraded as a traditional or folk art form - that wasn't my point. My issue is with those who want to crucify people like Sarina Jain for experimenting with something different. Sarina never claimed to be teaching "authentic Bhangra", she just...

    Food for thought: BlackMahal

    A few days ago I got an invite to First Class Bhangra's opening performance for BlackMahal's concert in Pittsburgh. Link: https://www.facebook.com/events/249685128468378/ (good luck guys!) Who/what is BlackMahal you ask? Their website says "Part P-Funk, part Punjabi-Funk, BlackMahal is a San...

    Uncalled for..

    Sad to see a whole bus of kids stay quiet. Not even one voice of reason? However, this is what kids do - they can be extremely mean and quite often cross the line. They need role models in their lives not the entire world wide web hating them. Hate breeds hate. Don't like saying this but...
