Spark

Bhangra, CJM, and Crooked Jades

Spark goes inside the world of bhangra, a traditional Indian dance that's been revitalized by a generation of young Indian-Americans. Teams of bhangra lovers merge time-honored moves with hip-hop beats, and travel around the country to battle it out at heated competitions.

Then, visit the Contemporary Jewish Museum, dedicated to exploring Jewish art and culture, for an exhibition that asks artists from various backgrounds to make objects inspired by the ceremonial Passover seder plate.

Next, the music of The Crooked Jades harkens back to an old time musical era infused with a decidedly modern attitude.
