Hardeep Sahota: Bhangra Lexicon
About the event
The Yorkshire Sculpture Park presents Bhangra Lexicon.
Bhangra Lexicon is the world’s first ‘visual dictionary’ of movements found within this beautiful artform, carefully compiled by World Bhangra Day founder, the Huddersfield-based dancer, Hardeep Sahota.
Bhangra is an energetic form of dance and music originated in the Panjab by farming communities during the spring harvest festival of Vaisakhi. Sahota has explored, documented and catalogued over 300 dance movements and gestures from Bhangra and its sub-genres to create a unique record that gathers together a rich body of knowledge, ensuring its preservation for future generations.
