Watch: Ed Sheeran's 'Shape of You' gets a bhangra makeover
A video featuring two Canadian Sardars shaking a leg to Ed Sheeran's 'Shape Of You' has gone viral. In the video, the duo perform bhangra against the backdrop of a cold winter's day in matching outfits and yellow turbans. In the one minute 15 second long video, they used a mix of Ed Sheeran's single and bhangra music, which is a remix by DJ Frenzy.
These two Sardars belong to the Maritime Bhangra group, and their names are Davinder Singh Dhillon and Bikramjit Singh, as mentioned in a post on the Bhangra Group's Facebook page. The duo is graceful, well-coordinated and smile throughout the routine. They begin with simple, slow steps but soon, the routine becomes quite fast-paced and complex.
The video currently has 137,680 views and 1560 likes on Youtube, and 6.2k likes and over 4000 shares on Facebook. This is not the first time that a video of the Maritime Bhangra Group has gone viral. Their 'Sardaar Ji' and 'Snow Shoveler Bhangra' videos have crossed 100,221 and 841,779 views respectively.
These Sardars don't perform just for entertainment; they post their dance videos to raise awareness and garner donations for causes. So far, they have engaged with organisations that help individuals with Multiple Scelrosis and initiatives that tackle children's pains, among other causes. They also encourage viewers to visit Nova Scotia, their province.
