Can you imagine a big fat Indian wedding without music? Perhaps not! The entire essence of the Indian wedding extravaganza lies in its wedding food, fun, dance and off course music. A little of those peppy songs and a little of those crazy dance moves is what adds oodles of fun to the wedding. The power of music is such that as soon as the music starts playing one can witness their uncles and aunts turning into Madhuri, Shakira, Hritik, Michael each inventing their own steps as they groove to the tunes of the song. Talking of weddings one cannot simply ignore the charm of the baraat dance that is quite popular for its bizarre dance moves which hail right from the latkeys ad jhatkeys to the mandatory naagin dance.
The baraat procession is one of the most anticipated moments at an Indian wedding. The journey embarking from the grooms place and ending up at the marriage venue is full of fun, endless crazy dance moves and all the hoo-halla. At the baraat procession after the groom another important person is the DJ who makes the baraatis groove to his tunes. As soon as the DJ wale babu starts playing the peppy bollywood numbers the baraatis start dancing and singing ‘DJ wale babu mera gaana baja do’. Although in India due to cultural diversity the wedding rituals differ from place to place yet the thing common in them is the baraat procession. So no matter whether you are having a Bengali, Punjabi or South Indian wedding a baraat is the most mandatory part of the wedding.
