This is the first of a series of recorded performances from the Maples Diwali Celebration.

On the 16th of November 2011 Maples Collegiate celebrated its first Diwali. Diwali, the festival of lights, is the most popular of all the festivals from South Asia. Channel 7 Oaks was there to broadcast the event to the World. Here are some of the performances we recorded that evening. Be sure to check back regularly as Channel 7 Oaks will be adding more recorded footage from the Maples Diwali Celebration.

The Maples Diwali Celebration Series - Part 1:

Maples Giddha Girls
A newly married couple comes home to the groom’s family. The bride’s mother-in-law performs a ceremony to welcome the bride into her new family. The women then play a game that makes them laugh, and they gossip and tease their relatives. They also stress the value of family over livestock.

Bhangra
This male-dominated Punjabi folk dance came into existence in the 11th century. Men originally danced to a dhol beat but now also include modern beats. The different forms of Bhangra are Jhumar, Sammi, Punjab, and Ludi which all express happiness and joy.

The five songs in this performance are: A love song in which a boy says, “I am alone, so come and meet me.”
Young men sing about Sikh pride attached to wearing a nice turban.
Young men sing about their hometown.
Young men sing about the strength of Punjabi people.
Whenever they dance, it’s like an earthquake.
Instrumental music featuring the dhol

The Maples Diwali Series - Part 2

Note: These two acts performed at the Maples Talent show which is also available for viewing here on Channel 7 Oaks.
