Basement Bhangra Battles 2017 in Melbourne 26th November

Welcome to the Battle Field. 

Legends has it that Bhangra is a warrior dance. Bhangra is related to the Punjabi dance ‘bagaa’ which is a martial dance of Punjab.

In recent decades, Punjabi community moved out to other parts of the world e.g. USA, UK, Canada, Europe for better life and new challenges. The migrant community also managed to preserve their unique culture and heritage in these new countries of settlement. Generations after now youth of Punjabi community is maintaining their connection with their roots and practicing traditional form of dance Bhangra. At the same time introduction of modern music and western influence is inevitable.
