The origin of bhangra

Bhangra originated in Punjab India a north western state and home of the Sikh religion. It was often performed after a harvest to celebrate a rich bounty. In recent times it has been used for every celebration from the birth of a child to a wedding and just a general night out. Its popularity stems from the fact it is energetic and is a kind of freestyle dance where you take a few basic moves and mone with the beat of traditional punjabi music. Everyone who does bhangra falls in love with and does not miss the opportunity to partake in it.
