Here are a few regional and Bollywood Lohri songs that will make you beat the dhol and nagaras a little louder this season:




What’s the best thing about the festival of Lohri? Dancing to the beats of popular Lohri songs! Celebrated in high spirits as the fire lights up the night sky, people dance around the bonfire and sing traditional Lohri tracks. From Bollywood hits to regional favourites and dhol beats, they play dance numbers all night. It is customary to light up the bonfire at sunset at the main village square. Sesame seeds, jaggery, peanuts and popcorn is tossed to show respect to the natural element of fire.



Marking the onset of summer after the wintry cold nights, the Punjabi folk festival falls on January 13 this year. The bonfire ceremony is different in parts of Punjab. A small image of the Lohri goddess is made and decorated with cow dung in some parts, whereas in other parts, the Lohri fire consists of wood and cow dung.



In a few parts, kite flying is also associated with Lohri. People get on top of their roof tops, play songs and fly colourful kites.



Here are a few regional and Bollywood Lohri songs that will make you beat the dhol and nagaras a little louder this season:
