Music is the most essential part of any wedding, Indian or American. The song that plays when the bride comes out for the first time, the first song that the couple dances too, together, the medley of songs that his family dances too, versus yours. From the dholak to the piano, from the shehnai to the violin, all cultures celebrate weddings with immense fanfare.
Over the years we have seen, realized and acknowledged how good music can set the tone of an event. Music is what binds families together in such joyous times, where dancing with each other on the incessant beat of the dholak is what matters over anything else in the world!
This is our ultimate shaadi playlist: something to add that extra zing to your big day.
