The History Of Bruin Bhangra

Bruin Bhangra is a well-recognized and leading organization in the Bhangra community. Established in 1998, the organization has annually hosted one of the most influential, popular, and exciting Bhangra competitions in North America. The competition itself has been held on Memorial Day Weekend every year, allowing it to be a three-day event focused on showcasing Indian heritage through the Punjabi dance of Bhangra and aiding in the development of a more cohesive Indian community which stretches from Southern California to Canada to the East Coast. Its previous locations have been in Long Beach, Beverly Hills, and this year in Downtown Los Angeles. Bruin Bhangra is a prestigious and well-acclaimed event, bringing in audiences and participants from all over North America, and is associated with the creativity, originality, and vibrancy that illustrates what Punjabi culture and Bhangra is truly about.

Since its establishment in 1998, the organization has grown to create a network of over 115 alumni, who are now representing Chak De Phatte Inc. all over the world. Our founders have recently come together to create a website dedicated to preserving the history, and bringing together all the talented individuals that once played a part in making Bruin Bhangra come together.
