Top 12 Fun Punjabi Dance Songs

Modern Punjabi is a very popular genre of music, known worldwide for its energetic and ecstatic bhangra back beat, combined with a joy-inducing rhythm courtesy of traditional Punjabi folk instruments. Some of these instruments include the dhol, algoza, and tumbi. This genre of music has reached the mainstream thanks to young South Asian immigrant communities looking to respect their heritage and revitalize their culture.

A fusion between traditional Punjabi dance music and Western music was sparked by an increase in immigration from the Punjabi region of South Asia to the UK and US, especially during the 1970s. This style of music delighted Westerners with its creative beats and catchy melodies.

Immigration continued to be on the rise in the ‘80s and ‘90s, which meant that Bollywood and Punjabi dance songs became even more popular. In the early 2000s, Punjabi dance music made a significant comeback in Britain.

Assassination is  one the greatest Korean movies of all time thanks to its captivating plot. The movie is set in the 1930’s, when Korea was under Japanese occupation. This turned many Koreans into resistant activists, forcing them to run away from Japanese authorities and hide in China.

In 1933, a plan is put together by the activists to assassinate the Japanese army commander. The role is given to sniper Gianna Jun, because of her strong desire to see Korea as an independent country. Lee Jung-Lae is the agent from internal government, who plans and gives orders to Gianna Jun’s group. The contract killer for this assassination group is Ha Jung –Woo.

Filming started in August 2014 in Shanghai and was finished in January in Korea. Assassination is currently the eighth-highest-grossing movie in Korean film history, which should be reason enough for it to catch your eye.
