Introducing Edinburgh Bhangra Crew (EBC) from Scotland! A newly formed Bhangra dance group who recently performed at Capital Bhangra 2012

 

Edinburgh Bhangra Crew was formed in the summer of 2008. A small group of students had been meeting regularly for a year previously practicing Bhangra as a hobby and performing for the thrill. We choreographed our own dances and routines which enabled us to teach each other. We decided to move up a level and create a society as part of The University of Edinburgh.


Their aim is to promote South Asian and Punjabi culture throughout Scotland through dance and music. EBC has members from all over the world from as far as France, India and even Australia who are dedicated to performing bhangra as the art form it is. This diverse multi-racial team sets us apart from other bhangra teams.

We are proud to be the FIRST and ONLY bhangra & dhol team in the Capital City of Edinburgh and the FIRST and ONLY Scottish University Society bhangra & dhol team.

We sincerely hope for all your support so we can continue to keep the culture growing strong in Scotland.

That's just uncalled for dude.

They've actually done really well for a brand new group.

Quoting Bhangraa:
Coreography was good its just that the dancers (especially the guys) were nowhere near the standard of other bhangra teams in the UK.


Thanks for the comment.

Yeah I totally agree with you there. Being the only Bhangra team in Edinburgh, and 1 of 3 teams in Scotland, there is a lack of guidance and support in bhangra up here. Also our team train from mid-September till end of March only (with approx 6 weeks winter break/ exams), and we have many new members who have never performed bhangra before thus re-teaching the basic steps. About 8 of the performers in the video have just started in September so what you're seeing is a 2-3 month experienced team! I'm pretty sure that is all evident in our performance.

Nonetheless, I hope you enjoyed it and hope to get your support for the growing & developing bhangra up here in Scotland!

Quoting Sat1234567:
The dancer who throws his pugh from his head at 1.40min has no respect for bhangra and more importantly for the pugh his wearing even if its during a bhangra show. It would have been much more respectable to go of stage, remove the pugh and return back into the routine rather then see him remove and fling his pugh.



On behalf of EBC and our performers we apologise for that incident. As we have said, no disrespect was intended and this hap[censored]ed purely by accident.

Our aim is to promote and develop Punjabi culture throughout Scotland and the wider community. Once again we apologise and we hope you all can look past this mishap.
