Bhangra is a cultural Indian dance from the Punjabi region in northwestern India. It combines popular music with original Punjabi music.

The Penn State Bhangra Team in its 4th year, has participated in many competitions both regionally and nationally.

Zainab Mukadam is a junior, and this year’s team captain. She is very passionate about coordinating popular music to a Punjabi tradition that means so much to her. Her aim is to demonstrate the beautiful culture she lives through the dance of Bhangra.

“The dance is about making people happy and excited, and when the audience smiles at us, we smile back,” she says.
