We are super excited to combine Bollywood and Indian dance to our Samba routine for 2019!

 

We will post videos of our songs as we practice them.

Each tune has:

 

  • An introduction, which is a call and response pattern between the Musical Director and the band

 

  • One or two main patterns that we repeat.

  • Breaks. (Breaks are where we change the main pattern for a 4-8 beats.) The Musical Director whistles when he wants us to change and uses hand signals.

  • Endings are signaled by the wave of the Musical directors hands. 

The stationary performance is 20 minutes long. 

The parade will be around 20 minutes from start to finish.

Below you will find audio and/or video of our songs.

One break is a silence or "shoosh" break for 4 beats.   There is also a T break where the tams play.  There are two main patterns in Bollywood.

This is the new ending, which is not played in the video above. it is signaled by the wave of the Musical Directors hands.

Whunkanui

Unknown Track - Unknown Artist
00:00 / 00:00

Whunkanui has no breaks. It repeats the same pattern through a few times. At one stage it does this quietly, the final time is the loudest!

Hiphop

Unknown Track - Unknown Artist
00:00 / 00:00

Hip Hop repeats through patterns 1-3.  They are subtle patterns changes for many instruments apart from the big drums.

Disco

Unknown Track - Unknown Artist
00:00 / 00:00

Disco has two main patterns that you will hear.

Disco has one break of 8 beats: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8

The following songs are going to be played when we march. We suggest the dancers repeat a sequence of  easy repeatable moves suitable for this. The only thing that might change is the tempo. (So you don't need to come up with different or new dances for each song as we parade.)

00:00 / 00:00
