Gurdeep Pandher on The Joy of Bhangra Dance and How to Truly Love Those of Other Cultures and Backgrounds
Jan 12, 2021 Season 2 Episode 1
Laurie Nichols & Ann Chow

In this episode of the Heromakers Podcast, Laurie and Ann kick off Season 2 with a fun and engaging conversation about joy, diversity, dance, and it's like to live way up in the Yukon, the land of the midnight sun. Gurdeep Pandher travels the world (and now via Zoom) to teach the lively and joyful dance called Bhangra, which was developed by rural Sikh farmers in India.

We talk about his journey from India to becoming a Canadian citizen and the lessons he's learned about people and cultures from his time traveling throughout Canada. Gurdeep believes deeply in the power of getting to know those different than ourselves and the power of joy to change how we see the world. He touches upon his Sikh heritage and how he has captured the hearts of so many--from rural communities to major cities.
