When internet sensation Gurdeep Pandher hit Vancouver Island for a series of dance videos, Black Press Media journalist Devon Bidal couldn’t help but wonder how it might pair with Highland dance.
While Pandher danced his way through Greater Victoria, he took the time to bust a move at some scenic spots in Saanich with Saanich News reporter Bidal.
“We went to Mount Douglas to fuse bhangra and Highland for creating cross-cultural bridges and unity-in-diversity,” Pandher said in a tweet releasing the video mash-up which features the pair combining their dance styles.
Pandher, from the Yukon, moved to Canada from India’s Punjab region more than 10 years ago. His videos of bhangra dancing in scenic locations around Canada has earned him a social media following of more than 300,000 people.

During my visit to Island, she took a break from Journalism to do what she loved doing in her earlier life.
