Sangeet is a pre-wedding ceremony, commonly referred to as Mahila Sangeet. This ceremony is one of the most awaited and talked about things during the wedding time. It is because it offers an escape from all the hassle and stress of the wedding preparations.
The women from both the groom’s and the bride’s family come together for a day of singing and dancing with the use of traditional Indian instruments like dholak, harmonium etc. The subject of these songs usually centre around the daily lives and hassles faced of women and involves teasing the bride and the groom about their time after the wedding. The songs also touch upon emotional matters like how the time bride will have to leave her family behind.
The ceremony is a celebration of the families coming together and is perhaps the most entertaining part of any North Indian wedding. India Imprints celebrates the sheer joy and raw emotion that runs like a melody through such beautiful occasions.
