Boston Bhangra Competition 2018

Rohit Bambi

If you love dance or Bhangra, Boston was the place to be on November 17th!  Boston Bhangra Inc. hosted their 15th annual Boston Bhangra Competition on Saturday, Nov. 17th  at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston. The event was packed with well over 2,000 people!

The competition level was very diverse and extremely competitive with teams from all over North America, according to organizers. Teams hailed from Toronto Canada, Washington State, Ohio, Illinois, New York, Texas, California, Virginia, and Boston. 
Eleven  teams competed. Nachdi Jawani Folk Loverz from Toronto Canada won the event, followed by Apna Bhangra Crew from Washington State  from Boston University Bhangra from Boston. Below is a description of the winning teams:

1st Place: Nachdi Jawani Folk Loverz
Nachdi Jawani Folk Loverz made their international debut 4 years ago when they were just 8 - 12 years old. Their goal has always been to spread their Punjabi roots, culture and to continue growing our virsa. After all these years they remain intact with their roots and are ready to rock in Boston!

2nd Place: Apna Bhangra Crew
Founded in 2006, a group of close friends started Apna Bhangra Crew, and sought to show their love and passion for bhangra around the Seattle area. ABC brings twelve dancers to the stage, to showcase their talent and love for bhangra. As a team, ABC brings a new flavor of Bhangra with the same folk elements that enhance the dance form. After competing successfully around North America for over a decade, ABC has focused on giving back to the community by opening up ABC Dance Center in the greater Seattle area. ABCDC now consists of over 250 dancers of all ages! ABC is excited to be visiting the east coast for the very first time, and will keep the same entertaining and energetic style that made them a household name. Watch out Boston, ABC promises to leave you smiling and yearning for more!

3rd Place: BU Bhangra
BU Bhangra, established in 1999, is a competitive, co-ed bhangra team proud to represent Boston University. Having performed at cultural events and arts showcases across the country, BU Bhangra is an acclaimed team that has received accolades locally and nationally.

The over three-hour event featured special performances from Bhangra superstar, G SIdhu who lit the stage on fire at the end of the event!  He has huge hit songs like Candlelight, Sat Sri Akaal, Credit Card and Hip Hop! 

One World Cuisine was the food vendor of choice and sold snacks, dinner and drinks at the venue. Some of major sponsors included E3UK, One World Cuisine, and PTC Punjabi.  The show will have a 1 hour special airing on PTC worldwide within the next several weeks! Don't miss it!

"It's always great to keep expanding year after year. This year we had PTC Punjabi help support us nationally and globally to help expand the reach of Bhangra and all of the things we're doing.  We also had more than 30% non-south asians attend as we continue to attract a more diverse audience each year. It's a true pleasure to see how many people attend this event and that we're at the center of all of it," stated Rohit Bhambi, the co-founder of Boston Bhangra.

Ekal Vidyalaya was a non-profit that presented at the event. 

Look out for next year's event in mid November!
