One of the troupe, Kamal Sidhu said: “It was great to see the audience joining in towards the end of the show and see some supportive faces in the crowd. The dance we performed is a very creative dance with a lot of energy that symbolises happiness.

“It’s a traditionally male dance which is about selling crops after the harvest and then celebrating in style.”
