Bhangra is the traditional music of Panjabi Indians. Now we like to think we have a pretty unique way of dancing. Now my illusions are shattered.

Either Panjabis learned Bhangra moves from the Jews or the rabbis copied it from us. But as this video shows – someone has to own up. Evn down to the ‘oy hoy’ noises and the changing light-bulb moves.

    I loved this. It was like ‘Thriller’ meets the ‘Mary Poppins’ chimney sweeps.

    Some of it was based on traditional Jewish dance.

    You didn’t know that we ‘Oy’d’ a lot?

    Shame on you :)

    You guys nicked that from Panjabis chairwoman – for sure. Panjabis have to get ‘oi’ into every sentence. :)

    There is a wonderful scene in “Bedknobs and Broomsticks” with Angela Landsbury where a group of Sikh soldiers march on in correct Left Right, Left Right order and then proceed to do a dance.

    I for one would liked to have seen more shoulder movement.

    That is what separates Panjabis from other mere mortals….the shoulder movements…..

    ……and the superhuman amounts of alcohol consumed

    Oye oye!

    I don’t remember that scene from Fiddler on the Roof, but it was a long film maybe I slept through that bit.
