VIDEO: Internet bhangra sensation, Black Press Media journalist make dance mash-up

Saanich News’ Devon Bidal, Gurdeep Pander combine Bhangra, Highland dance

When internet sensation Gurdeep Pandher hit Vancouver Island for a series of dance videos, Black Press Media journalist Devon Bidal couldn’t help but wonder how it might pair with Highland dance.

While Pandher danced his way through Greater Victoria, he took the time to bust a move at some scenic spots in Saanich with Saanich News reporter Bidal.

“We went to Mount Douglas to fuse bhangra and Highland for creating cross-cultural bridges and unity-in-diversity,” Pandher said in a tweet releasing the video mash-up which features the pair combining their dance styles.
