Kiran Thakrar founded the group 15 years back, and they’ve played at the maximum level, such as international festivals, royal receptions and despite comedian Bill Bailey. He states that in recent years, mainstream appreciation of Bollywood has improved and now he gets requests to play all around the world for all sorts of audiences.

You don’t have to have a Celtic connection to have an Irish folk dance – or ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee) – in your wedding. The truth is they appeal to people of all backgrounds, ages, and nationalities.
“More and more people are opting to have a Ceilidh, when in the 70s and 80s they may have had a disco,” says Paul Weir of Brand of Fire. “It’s a terrific method of getting people doing something together.”
Do not worry if none of you understand the moves. It is the job of dance-callers like Paul to get everyone on their toes, no matter experience. “I claim to have the ability to find everyone to dance,” he says. “The motions are reasonably easy, and we can tailor the operation to match the audience.”
