Rohit Bambi

If you like dance, the 16th annual Boston Bhangra Competition was the place to be on Saturday, November 23rd! The dancing was fantastic and the audience was packed!

The concept of Boston Bhangra is to showcase the best Bhangra teams from across North America on one singular stage. Bring the best teams together for this competition and you see how explosive and entertaining Bhangra can truly be!

Boston Bhangra, BBC for short, had teams from all over North America competing to be crowned the Showdown Champion.  Teams from Vancouver, Toronto, Texas, Pennsylvania, New York, Georgia, Virginia and Massachusetts all showed the Boston audience some of the best dances they have seen all year! However, only 3 teams could win:

1 Place: Madak Mutiyaaran Di - Toronto

2nd Place: CMU Bhangra - Pennsylvania

3rd Place: Vancouver Folk Roots Bhangra - Vancouver

Over $5000 worth of prize money and funding was awarded to the teams for attending the competiion.

Here is a quick description about each winning team:
