The Vancouver International Bhangra Celebration Society (VIBC) held a launch event on March 13 at Central City for the 2012 HSBC City of Bhangra Festival. Mo Dhaliwal, chair of the VIBC Society presented the program for the 2012 year. The launch treated us to a celebration of Indian food, music, and dance.
