When Cold Dawson City Gets Warmed Up with Bhangra Moves

Posted on Leave a comment

Gurdeep Pandher | Dawson City | Bhangra | Oora Aara – The Song of Punjabi Alphabet


It was the month of January in the town of Dawson City of the Yukon, Canada. It was cold. It was actually really very-cold. The fire was out as well. Then the people of Dawson decided to dance Punjabi folk-dance Bhangra to warm themselves up. And it worked.

Gurdeep Pandher​ trained local people to dance bhangra and then choreographed it in the Dawson streets to fire up the energy of the bodies.

People enjoyed dancing to bhangra and it also created pure happiness along with the rich-warmth of dance energy.

The Councillor with the City of Dawson government, Billy Kendrick and his team, brought cameras to film it.

And so true, in Dawson City, people found gold and we have found “golden hearts” there.

Dawson City is located in the Yukon Territory of Canada. It the place where Gold Rush happened between years 1896 and 1899. The area is also known as the Klondike region of the Yukon. Dawson City is also known for the marvelous writings of the Yukon poet Robert W. Service.

Bhangra is the folk-dance of Punjab.

Lyrics:-

Je ma boli nun bhull jawonge
Kakhan vich rull jawonge

Oora aara eeree sassa haha, saadi jaan hai
Sadi pachhan hai
Saadi jind jaan hai

Kakka khakha gagga ghagha ghanyna, kanth kariyo
Ehde naal khadio
Ehnoo nitt padiyo

Chacha chhachha jajja jhajha nayeeya, dilan ch rakhiyo
Nanak de bachiyo
Dashmesh de bachiyo

Tanka thatha dadda dhadha naana, chardi kala hai
Har ikk da bhala hai
Sarbhat da bhala hai

Tatta thatha dadda dhadha nanna, nirbhayo riho
Har ikk nun jaa kiho
Boli nun saambh liyo

Pappa faffa bhabha bhabha mamma, ma Punjabi hai
Sadi ma Punjabi hai
Ammi Punjabi hai

Yayeeya rarra lalla vava rada, bachiyan nu dassiyo
Parivaar nu dassiyo
Nagar ch dassiyo

Connected Cultures – A Gurdeep Pandher and Fiddleheads Collaboration

Connecting cultures | Find a common ground

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, Sikh culture, 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.

About Fiddleheads:- The Fiddleheads are celebrating 20 years of entertaining Yukon audiences this season. Founded in 1998 by Trish Barclay, the group creates original theatre productions, organizes barn dances, hosts jams, and works with other youth fiddle groups in the territory. The Fiddleheads have provided a first experience for many young Yukon musicians to develop their talents and expand their skills. Through the years, the group has performed everywhere from the Canada Winter Games to the Commissioner’s Christmas Party. Last year they released A Yukon Fiddle Celebration, an album of tunes from the repertoires of traditional fiddlers from across the territory.
