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.
This program is not currently scheduled for broadcast.
Go behind the scenes of Dhol Di Awaz, an annual bhangra competition.
Check out the Contemporary Jewish Museum and their invitational exhibition showcasing artists' interpretations of the seder plate.
Meet The Crooked Jades, who are part of a new generation of old time music.
