Who doesn’t love being part of a big fat Indian wedding? Pranav and Shefali’s London wedding was exactly that, and thanks to the good folks at Asian British Music, we managed a sneak peek into their celebrations.
With the wedding season just around the corner, one’s music playlist demands an immediate upgrade.
So, what does an ideal Indian wedding playlist look like? Well, latest dance numbers, (including Kala Chashma of course), foot-tapping haldi & mehendi numbers with emotional streaks every now and then (Maahi vey, anyone?) and inevitable wedding classics like Aaj Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai and Dulhe Ka Sehra.
And so it turns out, this eclectic fixture of wedding music isn’t limited to the Indian subcontinent alone, but transcends borders and goes all the way to London.
UK-based entertainment entity Asian British Music’s Ronak Mela Baja, recently did the unthinkable by playing tracks like Aaj Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai and Dulhe Ka Sehra at a typical Indian baarat (wedding procession) in London. Tracing historic monuments like Westminster Bridge, Big Ben and the House of Parliament the wedding procession was every bit its entertaining and melodious self.
A video posted on the Facebook page of Asian British Music shows the baaratis (people part of the wedding procession) having the time of their lives as they dance and groove to the melodious bhangra tunes!
