The Yukon’s 2019 Bhangra concert, created by Gurdeep Pandher, celebrated beautiful cross-cultural bonds and differences. It was a sold-out show.
Gurdeep Pandher is pleased to announce that the 2019 Bhangra Concert is happening at Yukon Arts Centre, Whitehorse, on Saturday, November 23, 2019, from 7 PM to 9 PM. Immediately after the concert, from 9:30 PM to 11:00 PM, there will be free-style Bhangra dance with DJ Dash in the Arts Centre lobby for the audience to participate and dance along with everyone.
Canadian Armed Forces and Gurdeep Pandher collaborated to create this Punjabi Bhangra dance video to celebrate diversity and inclusion in The Canadian Forces.

It was -30 in Whitehorse, Yukon today. Before, it has been up to -38 too. And it was 60th day of strike.

I felt their pain and decided to join them. Please support them!
