The History of Bhangra in the Burgh

For the past 11 years, Bhangra in the Burgh has been Pittsburgh’s premiere philanthropic bhangra competition. Teams from around the nation convene at Soldiers and Sailors to celebrate the rich and colorful cultural dance. All profits from the dance go directly to charity, with the aim of supporting the Pittsburgh and Indian community. It’s 100% organized and run by students at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh.
