Before we headed off to the theatre, I would have said I didn't know Bhangra. Now, I realize that I had more knowledge than I thought I did. If you try to pull into your mind a dance scene for the Bollywood musical of your choice, you probably HAVE heard Bhangra! :-) Here is a clip from the show. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUz0I6dC29w I gotta say, while I went in a bit skeptical, I came out with a huge grin on my face, several bhangra songs stuck in my head, and a powerful desire to dance! A festival of colour, politics, humour, tragedy, and song. Who could ask for more? i would love to go again!
