Watch Yaar Panj-aab Phangra kick off Kalaa Utsavam – Indian Festival of Arts 2022 with a lively Bhangra performance! Originating from the Punjab region in India, Bhangra originated as a folk dance that marked the arrival of the harvest season and has since evolved into a global phenomenon. This performance will be accompanied by exciting music created by dhol drums as well as short sets of lyrics known as boliyan, which have references to themes of love, devotion, strength and celebration.


Mask-wearing is optional. However, audiences are encouraged to continue to exercise responsibility and caution, such as wearing masks when in crowded places. No tickets will be issued. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
