Today’s a really special episode, because we’re talking about Bhangra and Friendships. For people that might not know I’ve been a professional Bhangra dancer for 6 years now, with 6 competitions under my belt and it was a hobby that was a big part of my early twenties and today I’m joined by Jessica, a 3 time award winning UK best female dancer and a very dear friend.
Jessica actually came with me to my first ever Bhangra class and I’m so glad that we were able to start our Bhangra journey’s together and we’ve been friends for a really long time so we thought we’d do a friendship test to you know reminisce. You may of heard Jessica on the podcast before because she was a guest in Season 1 episode 5 & 6 we were spoke about colourism, first dates and heartbreaks.
Now before we get into the episode I do want to explain a bit about what Bhangra is for anyone listening who doesn’t know, Bhangra is a dance that originate d in North India, specifically in an state called Punjab which is one of the states known for agriculture. The dance was traditionally used to celebrate a good harvest. When residents from Punjab immigrated to the western world to countries such as the UK, USA and Canada they took that culture with them and Bhangra has been past down from generations.
In the UK, there are various Bhangra competitions that have been formed over the years with one of them The Bhangra Showdown which started in 2007 by students at Imperial College London, which has now become one of the biggest Bhangra competitions in the world, hosting in legendary venues like Wembley Arena and the Hammersmith Apollo.
Join us as we talk about how we first started Bhangra, what motivated us to continue dancing and the impact it has had on our lives. (P.s this episode is funny)
Hope you enjoy the episode!
