Sangeet and Mehndi are two Indian wedding functions that are organised one or two days before the wedding day. In sangeet, family members on either side organise and song and dance party, and in the mehndi ceremony, they wear intricate designs made from henna paste on their hands and feet.
Traditionally, these two functions are hosted by the bride’s side where some of the groom’s family members are invited, but this is no longer the case, at least not in a Bihari wedding. These two functions are combined in one wedding ceremony and celebrated on either side by family and friends.
The group gives Mehendi Sangeet program live or on karaoke. If it is live then there are around 9 to 10 artists consisting of 1 compere with 4 singers and 4 vadak. In karaoke no vadaks are required. The songs are tipical Hindi and Marathi songs for Mehendi and lageen.
