A Film to Display Canadian Cultural Mosaic | Punjabi Bhangra Dance, Fiddle Music, Punjabi Musical Instrument Tumbi, Highland Dancers, Live Music, and some other cultural beauties – In this 4-minute film, you will find many elements woven together.
This film is a collaboration between Gurdeep Pandher and the Yukon’s Fiddleheads to celebrate Canadian cross-cultural friendship. When we share our cultures with each other, we understand each other better, and make cross-cultural connections stronger. In this short dance and music film, we included Bhangra dance, fiddle music, Punjabi musical instrument Tumbi, highland dance, and some other cultural and aesthetic arts.
Cultures have been an integral part of human evolution and also kept us connected. Every country, region, faith or group have their cultures, which they celebrate and also remains a good formation of their life style. Cultures created events, festivals, folk-fairs, house-concerts and other reasons for people to come together at one place and celebrate doing fun activities which keep them entertained, make them motivated, keep them connected with their roots, remind them about their folk-traditions, and also unite them with theirs and other cultures
Gurdeep Pandher is grateful to Keitha Clark, the head of Fiddleheads, for a wonderful team-work during the making of this film and playing a great role in this collaboration. One of other major thanks is due to Gurdeep’s dance partner Monique Chatterton for learning and dancing bhangra along him. The whole film team is very much thankful to Yukon Transportation Museum in Whitehorse for donating their space for free to shoot this film.
