Just before dinner, I was listening to some 1980s bhangra from the greatest of bands of Punjabi music, Heera. I’m sort of stuffed now, otherwise I could have been dancing like the guys in the GIF above. These fellas are from the Maritime Bhangra Group of Halifax in Canada.

From the Lion King, we move onto one of the kings of bhangra (Punjabi music), Harbhajan Mann, who perhaps is more well-known as an actor in Punjabi films but has put out a few good dhol and tumbi numbers. Here he is in the guise of a bhangra dancer. Oh balle balle!!
BTW this is the last GIF I saved in 2007. Roll on 2008.

Lights sparkle on and around the Golden Temple of Amritsar, in Punjab, India. This is the holiest place of worship for Sikhs, who also celebrate Diwali.
