An ethnic event second to none

I had a chance to provide lighting for Sid and Nera's Sangeet at LA Natural History Museum, across from the USC Campus. Wow, my bad for not anticipating the sheer pagentry and the flair of the performances associated with a Sangeet....For those of you not familiar with a "Sangeet".

A "Sangeet" is an event in a Hindu or Sikh wedding culture. In which it takes place 2 or 3 days before the wedding in a banquet hall or at home. During this event, ladies & men will sing traditional Indian songs, and joke around with guests. This event is also like a dinner and dance, because there is a lot of dancing and lots of food! The Sangeet is a good natured ribbing of the couples in-law.

I guess the term I use ubiquitously, "Go big or Go home", really applied was it a big festive event.
