Day 29: Five songs or pieces of music

Today’s topic is an interesting one ‘Five songs or pieces of music that speak to you or bring back memories. Use  YouTube to include them in the post’. Here are the 5 songs that speak to me or bring back memories 🙂 🙂 🙂 1. Ek Main Aur Ek Tu Hein, from Bluffmaster. This brings back the memory of me and my dad dancing to the music and hip hop steps like Abhishek Bachhan and my mom watching us and laughing her heart out!!! 2. Hold On To Your Dreams, by Sean Paul. I first heard this song in Usain Bolt’s documentary tilted ‘ The Fastest Man Alive’. Whenever I hear this song, it gives me motivation and inspires me to hold on to my dreams 🙂 3. Pee Loon, from Once Upon A Time In Mumbai. This brings back the memory of me performing a dance on this during my sangeet ceremony. This was the first time I ever danced in front of a crowd! 4. Paayal Baje Mori  This song is very close to my heart as my mom would often sing it when she was learning music. She would end up practising this song when I would be studying for exams or doing my homework. I would ask her to stop singing and get mad at her then! 5. Someone Like You, by Adele. This is my current fav! I wish I could sing like her 🙂...

Dholi Tarro Dhol bajje!!

Last night I had been to SEF Dandiya event at the Santa Clara Convention centre with my friends. I could feel the excitement right from the place we parked upto the grounds we danced on. The moment I walked into the hall, I knew I was in for something special. It was crowded like never before, people dressed in the best of colorful traditional attires. As I walked through the crowd trying to spot some of my friends, I could not help but notice the swirling colorful ghagras, the embroidered cholis, bandhani duppatas with dazzling mirror work and the ecstatic clacks of dandiya.  Some of them were beginners, like me, trying hard to catch up with the rhythm, missing a beat here and there but not letting their spirits down. Some whirled around  beautifully with complex and intricate steps matching perfectly with the music beats. It was truly mesmerizing to watch them dance!!  I was so happy to be able to make it to this spectacular event and see people attached to their traditional roots in the US! Also, the ticket money that was being collected was going to be used for charity (eradicate blindness from India). A gift of vision!! Enjoy the pics!!! Aarti- Navratri Puja Dance like no one is watching! The gorgeous couple in traditional attire!...
