A MIDLANDS based Bhangra dance group, who have over 85 years of experience collectively, will be offering a free Dhol drumming workshop on Friday, August 4.

The Lions of Punjab are joining forces with Birmingham Hippodrome to host the hour-long session, which will take place from 6.30pm.

During the workshop, the Lions will introduce participants to the high energy folk dance which is performed to the beats of the dhol, tumbi, algozey and folk singing ‘boliyan.’

Using authentic Dhol Drums, participants of all ages and standards will also have the opportunity to explore the exciting style of drumming before practicing their skills and performing a mini routine.

Workshops will also take place every Friday from 6.30pm until September 15 in the Hippodrome’s PwC Suite.

The Lions have performed alongside some of Bhangra and Bollywood’s biggest artists and have taught numerous workshops across the West Midlands.
