There are a variety of instruments played by our Malwai Gidha dancing group as well to create the tunes of the songs, and these instruments are categorized as:


The Malwai Giddha is performed with an instrument with a high pitch called a tumbi, also referred to as a toombi. The instrument is often associated with Punjabi traditional music, but it is also widely used in Western Bhangra.


Tongs, sometimes referred to as chimta, are a staple of Punjabi traditional dancing. With the inclusion of brass jingles, it has recently developed into one of the traditional South Asian instruments. Along with Gurbani Kirtan, it is employed in a variety of dancing styles.


A very common instrument utilized in a variety of dance styles, including Malwai Giddha, Bhangra, and others, is the Kato. The name Kato was chosen for this instrument simply because the design is akin to that of a squirrel, and the word itself means "squirrel" in the literal sense. The instrument is used in many dances because it represents people's enjoyment.


Another Punjabi musical instrument, the Sapp, is utilized in a variety of dancing styles, including Malwai Giddha and Bhangra. Performing Malwai Gidha in Canada is a proud moment as people of different nations get exposure to Punjab's Folk Dance.

And if you are a Punjabi by heart and are looking forward to organizing any Cultural Event, Wedding, Reception, or Festival in Canada, then Young Bhangra Calgary is the finest spot near you.
