Our goal is to make your ideas a reality. Whether it be accompanying bag pipes with the baraat, a majestic elephant for the groom to arrive in, or traditional bhangra dancers leading the procession, we can help you find the resources. So leave your worries behind and see what we have to offer.
We can provide experienced and professional Dhol players for your next event. Our traditional Dholis make a great addition to the Mehndi night, Sangeet, Baraat Procession or during the Shaadi. Although we specialize in Indian Weddings, our talented Dholis are available to play at various other occasions including Private Parties, Cultural Shows/ Performances, Club Events and Concerts. We are dedicated to creating a memorable night and leaving the crowd inspired, energized and ready to Bhangra.
A popular and highly recommended option for baraats is having two, or even three Dholis lead the procession. Multiple Dholi Players can coordinate and play in sync which produces an amazing stereo effect. Jugalbandi, or going back and forth between multiple Dhols, produces a rich and fuller sound. Towards the end of the Baraat, live Dhol can add excitement to the Milni ceremony. For the Milni, we vary the beats for each pair that meets and also adjust according to what's happening. Towards the end of each union when the garlands are exchanged, the Dhol is played the loudest and fastest. Upon request, our Dhol players can also dress in traditional Punjabi outfits to create a vibrant yet cultural atmosphere. Watch a video of live Dhol with Baraat procession...
At receptions, we can escort the Groom into the venue with lively & energetic beats to create the setting for the wedding to commence. Additionally, we can also open up the dance floor, and play along with any type of music during the dance. Performing solo or alongside music, our Dholis are highly trained in both traditional and contemporary styles of music. Also, the Dhols are fitted with internal microphones, which can bring immense energy to the dance floor when hooked up to the DJ mixer. Watch a video of live Dhol during the Reception...
Horses and Carriages
Are you looking for a traditional white horse or carriage for the Baraat Procession? What about the large traditionally decorated umbrella carried by the Best Man? Ask about our complete Baraat Package which includes the horse along with the Dholis.
We work with both Bhangra and Bollywood dance teams. Bhangra dancers are availabe to dance along in the Baraat procession or liven up the dance floor during the Reception. Additionally, both Bhangra and Bollywood dance teams are available to perform a routine for a Reception. Consider the University of Virginia’s official bhangra team, UVA di Shaan, for your next event. Their goal is to promote Bhangra both at the UVA and elsewhere through competitive and non-competitive performances. From the traditional harvest-style moves to the modern blends of stunts and style, UVA di Shaan is a true representation of Virginia talent. Watch a video of the Dance Team Performance...
Accompanying bag pipes can add a unique touch to the Baraat procession. Up to three Bag Pipe Players are available to coordinate with the dholis. Watch a video of Bag Pipes with Dhol...
We work with both Sitar and Tabla players. Background musicians can brighten the atmosphere during the Wedding Ceremony or Cocktail Hour.
As the saying goes, "A DJ can make or break a party." Although our dholis can coordinate with any DJ, some come better equipped than others. Ask for the DJs we reccommend.
