Bhangra is a traditional Punjabi folk dance. Although this type of music originated from the Indian state of Punjab, the music is now very popular in some countries in Asia, particularly in India. According to history, Bhangra is originally a style of music used for the celebration of the seasonal harvest. On April 13, every year, bhangra is usually performed by the Punjabis to mark the day of Baisakhi.

While Bollywood refers to the Hindi film industry, it will be discussed in relation to the style of music and dance that are commonly used in Hindi movies. It is important to note that the Bollywood dance of the past was a complete reflection of the Indian traditions.

However, modern Bollywood dance has been transformed to include some elements of the western countries. When performing bhangra, there are people who sing the Loriyaan and Boliyaan lyrics, as well as people who beat the dhol drum. On the other hand, Bollywood dance consists of a performer who is probably the hero or heroine of the movie plus other people who dance with him or her.
