From amongst all the events in an Indian wedding, few match the energy and excitement of the Sangeet. The Sangeet is the event that has dancing, dancing and even more dancing - with most of the family members getting involved (or getting pulled!) at some point of time through the evening.
We absolutely love everything about an Indian wedding, and the sangeet is certainly no exception. If you're looking for inspiration of what to wear for a Sangeet, see our guide here - outfits for a sangeet ceremony. If you're looking for inspiration for music for the evening - look no further!
We have put together the ultimate playlist for you - from the old to the new, everything is covered! So when you're ready, let the music begin! Not only will you want to sing along to all these famous tines, but you're also not going to be able to stop dancing - you have been warned!
