By Rohit Kabra & Upasana Gupta

There’s something about weddings in India. They’re celebrated in an exaggerated, magical way that you rarely get to experience elsewhere. While many of us frown at the thought of attending a billion shaadis and the sho-sha that surrounds a wedding in our country, people like us {Rohit and Upasana} LOVE the madness that goes into it. Beyond the food, the extravagance and the clothes, the life of a shaadi, like any other grand celebration, is the music a.k.a. Band Baaja in our beloved land.

Now, there is an obvious difference between the music that’s enjoyed and danced to at a baraat and a sangeet, and that’s played at a cocktail, a roka, a reception or just a gathering. Bringing you a two-part playlist that’ll take you on-to and stage and off it – an hour of kickass evergreen sangeet music to dance to, and another hour of our favorite dance music to get the crazy on!
