Jaan Punjabi Bhangra

Jaan Punjabi Bhangra (JPB) was formed in 2009 after a group of friends and families decided to get together to perform Bhangra together. Led by Ramanpreet Singh, the team consists of male and female performers who have various degrees of experience in the Bhangra scene in Singapore! Check out one of their early performances that was uploaded to their YouTube channel back in 2009!

Performing fusion Bhangra with high energy stunts, JPB’s members have performed in various events in the 9 years since inception. Signature events such as Chingay Street Parade, National Day Parade, SAFRA Singapore Bay Run and Asia’s Ultimate Mixed Martial Arts Fighting Championship at Resorts World Sentosa as well as regional cultural exchange programmes in South East Asia in Bangkok (Thailand), Phuket (Thailand), Jakarta (Indonesia) and Medan (Indonesia).

As the team looks to the future, they realise that there was a need to expand their knowledge towards different dance forms and a need to mesh Bhangra with these dance forms to preserve the public’s interest in Bhangra and begin training the next generation in Singapore.

In 2018, JPB began working with a ballet school in Singapore to incorporate ballet into upcoming performances and will also be working with other dance schools to incorporate other dance forms like Samba and Salsa for other events.

JPB have also started basic Bhangra training for children as young as 3 years old and are also working with the neighbouring Resident Committees (RCs), Community Centres (CCs) and Schools within their base in Punggol, Singapore to bring Bhangra to them.

SMU Bhangra

SMU Bhangra was started in 2013 by the first exco of SMU Sikh Society to spread awareness about Punjabi culture and create a platform for Punjabis and non-Punjabis to interact and foster new bonds. Since then, SMU Bhangra has provided a platform for dancers in SMU to come together to learn and excel in Bhangra, as well as introduce bhangra to the SMU Community.

Their first performance was at Diwali Night 2013, that was organized in collaboration with the SMU Indian Cultural Society and soon were crowned champions at Jashn-E-Bhangra 2014, a tri-uni bhangra competition. SMU Bhangra also performs actively at intra-SMU events and participated in RedDot Bhangra Extravaganza in 2016 and 2017.

On top of their active performers, SMU Bhangra has over 15 alumni members from different backgrounds that contribute by teaching the current students for upcoming performances. Their style of bhangra is an exciting mix of traditional and fusion with Bollywood and Bharatnatyam.
