By on July 30, 2015

Sangeets are always the most fun event when it comes to all the different wedding ceremonies. The highlights of the evening include an open bar, total abandon and a dance floor that doesn’t shut down. Most DJs play contemporary Bollywood music however; there are a few songs that you just cannot do without. These are:

Ishq Tera Tadpave

It’s no secret why this song is the first one on the list! Sukbhir’s lyrics combined with the funky bhangra-esque lyrics are more than enough to make any red blooded Punjabi get on the dance floor.


Kava Kava – Monsoon Wedding

This is the song that all the mummies and aunties will dance to. Honestly, you’ll probably be there somewhere in the middle of the crowd shaking it off too.


Gur naal ishq mitha – Bally Sagoo

Isn’t this song a classic? Add it to any Punjabi playlist (contemporary or old) and watch your entire guest list cram up on the dance floor.


Aaja Nachle – Bally Sagoo

Another Bally Sagoo favorite, this song was also featured in Monsoon Wedding. The lyrics and beats are more than enough to get you on the dance floor along with your family.


Mein Sharabi – Yo Yo Honey Singh / Cocktail

How can a sangeet ever be complete without Honey Singh? This is the ideal song to play to get the youngsters to start dancing.
