DanceTime Bhangra contains just the Bhangra dance rhythm from the complete DanceTime Deluxe app, and represents excellent value for anyone learning just one dance.


As featured on


Bhangra dance is based on music from a Punjabi folk drum, dhol, folk singing, a single-stringed instrument called the iktar, the tumbi and the chimta. The accompanying songs are small couplets written in the Punjabi language called bolis. In Punjabi folk music, the dhol’s smaller cousin, the dholki, was nearly always used to provide the main beat. Nowadays the dhol is used more frequently. Additional percussion, including tabla, is less frequently used in bhangra as a solo instrument but is sometimes used to accompany the dhol and dholki. This rhythm serves as a common thread which allows for easy commingling between Punjabi folk and Reggae as demonstrated by such artists as the UK’s Apache Indian.
In the late 1960s and 1970s, several Punjabi Sikh bands from the United Kingdom set the stage for Bhangra to become a form of music instead of being just a dance. The success of many Punjabi artists based in the United Kingdom, created a fanbase, inspired new artists, and found large amounts of support in both Pakistani and Indian Punjab.
