Bhangra is the most popular dance of the boys of Punjab.
- This dance is a vivid picture of Punjabi’s jovial nature, physical strength and abundance of life.
This dance is originally from Sialkot of West Punjab, Sheikhupura area of Gujarat, but due to its vigor and vitality, it has become a common and popular dance of all Punjabis.
- This dance is so difficult and vigorous that only Punjabis dare to dance it. The folk dance of any other region of India does not equal it in intensity and liveliness could Nachar men wear an open kurta and a black kurti on top.
They tie a turban with shamla on the head. Various instruments are used for bhangra.
- Like tongs, kato, algoze, iktara and snake etc. But the real color is tied to the drum. Being a beer-rasa wali ghukar dance, the drum beat creates tremendous excitement.
The first drummer starts drumming in the arena. Then the dancers come in for fun and form a circle and start dancing with enthusiasm.
- The rhythm of the speech is quite straight. Dhan, Dhana, Dhin Dhan, Tan, Kar. In the beginning, the rhythm is slow, then it gradually becomes loud.
Then the dancers also move their body, shake their shoulders and move their feet.
- Sometimes they move their knees forward and lower their body to the beat and sometimes shake their fists, raise their first finger and spread their arms. are As the rhythm of the drum quickens, the movements of the dancers also quicken.
After some time, the dance stops and one of them comes inside the circle, puts one hand on his ear, raises it and makes a speech in a unique way.
- When the speech ends, the drummer again gives a warning by beating the drum and the dance resumes.
New bodily movements begin with new speech. In these dialects, there are many praises of bravery, enthusiasm, courage and good nature of the country’s heroes.
- The rhythm of the voices and the drums keep the Bhangra beat warm.
