The Vancouver International Bhangra Celebration has come to a close in a whirlwind of vibrant colors and sounds. The week long celebration, held in the cities of Vancouver and Surrey, was an opportunity for performers from across Canada and the U.S. to showcase their talents and passion for Bhangra.
The Consulate sponsored four American Bhangra dance teams to attend VIBC and was interested to learn more about its origins and contemporary participants.
Native to the Punjab region of India and Pakistan, Bhangra’s popularity worldwide is steadily growing. The Consulate is proud to collaborate on events which promote cultural exchange and diversity.
