In the early 20th century, men from Punjab, India arrived in California to work on farms. Discriminatory immigration laws precluded them from bringing their wives from India, so many married Mexican women. This exciting performance, featuring 25 dancers and live music, brings together vibrant Punjabi Bhangra and Mexican Folkloric dance. It creates spaces to bridge cultural misunderstandings and offers insight into the complexities of shared communities.
