Canadian Mayor dances bhangra, ties turban in viral video

A Sikh man has taught his local mayor in Canada how to tie a turban and dance bhangra – and the video of the process has gone viral with more than a million views.

Gurdeep Pandher suggested the idea to the mayor of the City of Whitehorse, Yukon, Dan Curtis, who described it as the “coolest thing he’d ever been asked to do”.

As well as seeing the mayor dance, the video also serves as a tutorial on how to tie a Sikh turban as the complete video shows the process from beginning to end.

“It shows we can still connect people from other communities and cultures and build bridges with each other,” Pandher told Reuters, when asked about his inspiration for making the video.
