Weekly Music Video

Today's video is from the Bollywood film Awarapan (2007). The film is based on Korean movie A Bittersweet Life and is about hit man Shivam (played by Emraan Hashmi), who works for the gangster who raised him, Bharat Malik (Ashutosh Rana). One day Shivam's world changes when he meets Aaliyah (Shriya Saran), a devout Muslim girl. He falls in love with her and the couple plan to marry but Aaliyah's father objects because Shivam is a criminal. This leads to a fight and Aaliyah's dad accidentally kills her. Heartbroken, Shivam moves to Hong Kong to spy on Reema (Mrinalini Sharma), a Pakistani woman who is Bharat's mistress. Bharat suspects her of having a lover.

The song is Mahiya (sung by Suzanne D'Mello in the film) and in the video Shivam is following Reema and her friends around Hong Kong.

There's also another version by British Pakistani singer Annie. She originally released her version (as Mahia) and then it was used for Awarapan. Annie did the remix for the film.

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…

J Soul Brothers (Japanese boyband)

I don't know that many Japanese boybands. It's funny but I mostly know Korean groups and Japanese solo singers! I know KAT-TUN, Arashi (although they're more of a rock group, I think) and Hey! Say! JUMP but not many more. A friend recently introduced to me the band (or vocal and dance unit) J Soul Brothers, so I thought today I'd do a post about them. And of course it fits into the J-pop and K-pop theme I'm doing this month! This is a good opportunity to find more J-pop boybands too. :)

The J Soul Brothers were originally formed in 1998 but have gone through two line-up changes. The current incarnation- full title Sandaime (Third Generation) J Soul Brothers from EXILE TRIBE* or J Soul Brothers III- was formed in 2010 by HIRO who is the leader of Japanese boyband EXILE (which has an impressive 19 members!) and founding member of the First Generation J Soul Brothers.  It was decided that EXILE and former Nidaimie (Second Generation) J Soul Brothers members NAOTO and …

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)

First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.
