    Of the seventy plus new acts that will perform during the Vancouver Olympics, Sikh icon Harbahajan Singh Mann will lead the bhangra celebrations.
    This will take place on February 27, 2010 at the prestigious Queen Elizabeth Theatre
    649 Cambie St, Vancouver, the event will be organised in calibration with Vancouver International Bhangra Celebration Society (VIBC)
    “We are absolutely thrilled to be a part of these celebrations, profiling Sikhs and Punjabis is so important
    “We are honored the Harbhanjan Ji ahs committed his valuable tie to ensure that we have a true display of our music and culture for what is an iconic moment for Canada, as Candian Sikh we are very proud to be a part of the celebrations”
    Return home, in the early hours, danced out and still buzzing from this one-night bhangra blitz. Quantum Bhangra multiplies the party, collecting influences and styles from around the world — rock, funk, hip-hop and jazz — and weaving them together with a common thread of bhangra and Punjabi folk traditions.
    Singer and movie star Harbhajan Mann headlines, mixing fast-paced bhangra rhythms and trademark Punjabi ballads. With Shin, founding member of the seminal British band DCS, joining Vancouver rockers En Karma, and the hip-hop inspired funk of San Francisco’s Black Mahal featuring vocalist and Dhol master Ustad Lal Singh Bhatti.
    International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) Coordination Commission for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games through its Chairman, René Fasel. For its ninth and final visit (25 – 26 August) to the next Olympic and Paralympic Host City, the Commission was joined by representatives of the Olympic Winter International Federations, who were able to bring their expertise to bear in the discussions with the Vancouver Organising Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) relating to the sporting elements of the Games, as well as by observers from the Sochi 2014 Organising Committee.
    Speaking at the close of the meetings, Fasel said, “The organizers of the Games in Vancouver and Whistler are ready for 2010. We’ve heard from VANOC and its partners about all the steps that they are undertaking to ensure that the athletes and other Games visitors have a fantastic Olympic and Paralympic experience. We are extremely happy with what we have seen and heard, and are confident that they will deliver.”
    With the Olympic Torch Relay underway , VANOC and its partners are becoming increasingly operational and are reaching a very precise level of detail in their planning. This is normal at this stage of the Games preparations and requires great focus from the organisers to ensure that the Games reach Olympic level.
    The 2010 Olympic Winter Games will be staged in Vancouver and Whistler from February 12 to 28, 2010. Vancouver and Whistler will host the Paralympic Winter Games from March 12 to 21, 2010.
