BTF will continue to be archived and hosted here
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.

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.
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!

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...
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...
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...
