Anyone who knows me (and as you can see by the picture of my car above as well as others I have shared on here) knows that I love seeing displays of #OrangePride whenever possible. So from time to time, I will gladly share photos and videos in the hopes that we can embrace our pride and let our Orange freak flag fly.
Today I found an interesting video that I loved and wanted to share. It led me to do some research about something I had never heard of before and that is the Syracuse Orange Bhangra.
To be fair, I am not a Syracuse alum so I am not aware of all Syracuse clubs, teams, or organizations. I am also not the most culturally diverse person you will ever meet. I do however believe one great aspect about living life is learning about something/someone new whenever possible.
With that thought in mind, I want to introduce you to this awesome club and art form. According to their website, the Syracuse Orange Bhangra are:
Orange Bhangra is a student run Bhangra team at Syracuse University. It’s members strive to preserve the tradition of Bhangra dance and style, and let it be known throughout the SU campus and surrounding communities.
Orange Bhangra is a diverse group of teammates and friends who spend their free time hanging out and doing Bhangra wherever they can. While at practice, SOB works hard to incorporate both traditional and modern styles of Bhangra dance into their routines, while adding an entertainment component that keeps audiences on the edge of their seats and leaves them wanting more.
Here are a couple videos that got me into researching the group and help show you a little bit more about the group.
Let me make something perfectly clear. I do not care if you are a white guy who lives in an Orange trailer (and to be fair, I have thought of painting my house orange which is why is it called Orange Casa on Foursquare) or you are an immigrant wearing a SU hoodie; if you are sharing your Orange pride with the world, I love you all the same. Check out all that orange and blue…how can you
hate not love this group? In fact, not only do I LOVE Orange diversity, I would gladly do anything I could to help promote it (ex. see this blog post). We are all of one love and that love is Orange .
