How to dance on dhol

UK College Student Dhol Dance: 'Utterly brilliant.' UK college student shakes a leg to desi dhol beats, video goes viral on Twitter

"Music is the universal language of mankind."

People across the world keep proving this famous quote by American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, who died in 1882. A heartwarming video of a college student in the UK dancing to beats of dhol is putting a sweet smile on everyone's face on the Internet.

The cute incident took place on the occasion of the college's culture day where students dressed up in their traditional attires to the function. Inside the college premises, some students brought out the dhols and as the beats of double-headed drums filled up the room, a young boy appeared on the dance pit, slowly picking up the music.

The boy, dressed in white shirt and black pants, took the centre spot on the dance floor as he started grooving to the dhol beats before throwing some major Punjabi dance moves. His excited college mates are heard hyping him up with cheers and applauds. As the beat drops, other students also join the boy on the dance floor. The lovely video shows students from different cultures, dressed in their beautiful clothes reflecting their heritage, dancing together to dhol beats.

The video, which was uploaded to Twitter on Friday, so far has over 2.1 million views. "Punjabi music always brings everyone together," the man who uploaded the video wrote.

Indian & Pakistani Wedding ceremonies can range from fun to very dry, but the parties afterwards are always amazing! And personally, i can't resist dancing even if just hear the drums in the street outside the town hall at a wedding I don't know anyone at. JOY!

The father of the boy in the video also commented. "I'm very proud of him. Young people having fun and respect for each other. Wonderful," he said.

The video also refreshed everyone's memory on a similar video that popped up on the Internet recently where a group of boys from 'Quick Style' based in Norway, set the dance floor on fire as they shook their legs on chartbusters such as 'Kaala Chashma' and 'Chura Ke Dil Mera' songs.

The video was shot at a wedding where the friends of the couple delivered a special performance for the newlyweds.
