Members of Bhangra Empire pose on stage for our ‘Save the Date’ pictures. We thought it would be fitting to do a vest drop because, let’s face it, we vest drop everything. Plus, I’m pretty sure nobody has done it before, so it falls into the category of unique.

Bhangra Empire celebrates after being announced as the Best of the Best 2009 Overall Winner. The announcement ceremony was kind of cool with the name of the winning team being projected on the screen behind us. The competition was held in the Bay Area (Redwood City) and was the last time the team has competed locally. Hopefully that changes soon.
As much as it seems like from this picture, our name never used to be Bhangra Erpiwe. This was our infamous ending at Dhol Di Awaz 2007. The signs were obviously supposed to say Empire. The story is kind of complicated, so try and follow along. Firstly, the signs were laid down backwards (and yes, I laid them out, so my bad). So in theory, the signs should have said ERIPME. But then, one of the ...
Whoever said brown people can’t jump, hasn’t seen this picture. I was debating between using the ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ reference or the ’3 Men and a Baby’ reference, but I assumed that 5 guys and a girl could be taken the wrong way. On a side note, I think the shadows in this picture look pretty cool. (Bhangra Empire @ The Bhangra Showdown 2012 in Lond...
Puneet, Poonam, and Muneet pretend to have a tea party. Too bad they are missing the most important part, the cups. This picture was taken in October of 2010. Bhangra Empire went to Houston for a special performance at a Diwali gala.
No matter how much we try to clean, dancers will always put their own flare to a move. On Bhangra Empire, we try to limit differences as much as possible, but sometimes people just get into it too much. In this picture, Jigish, Manish, and Danish look a little different, while Kiranjit, Chirag, and Jujhaar look the same. Which looks better? I guess that differs depending on the person. (Photo t...
Puneet pauses for a second and gives her best Poonam impersonation while getting ready before Jashan 2012. As opposed to the real world, the girls actually take less time than the guys to get ready in the bhangra world. This is only because each guy has to wait in line to get his pagh tied.
Bhangra Empire on stage at Jashan 2012. Check out those high knees, extended arms, and nice 90 degree angles. Come on Shy, get that arm up and your legs higher!
Bhangra Empire poses after Bhangra Nation West 2007 which took place in Vancouver, Canada. This was the first time we placed at a competition, taking home first place.
Bhangra Empire performs at a wedding in Elk Grove this past weekend. As opposed to most wedding performances, this performance came as a surprise to the couple, included an extra wedding-themed song at the end, and a custom vest drop. (Photo courtesy of TeshyyB Photography)
