Daler Mehndi - Tunak Tunak Tun

Music

by RetroDiva 05 Mar 2009

"Tunak Tunak Tun", often referred to solely as "Tunak", is a bhangra/pop love song created by Indian artist Daler Mehndi and released in 1998. It has become an internet meme because of its catchy tune and the amusing dance in its music video, inspiring numerous spin-offs and parodies. The music video was the first made in India to use bluescreen technology, which allowed the singer to superimpose his image over various computer-generated backgrounds, one featuring St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow. The "strange" dancing and presence of only the singer in this video was a response to criticism from the world of Bhangra pop. Many critics at the time complained that his music was popular due to his videos which featured beautiful women dancing; his response was to create a video that featured only himself. As he predicted, the song was still a huge success, but the phenomenon of foreign language and unusual dancing made the video a cult hit in other countries as well. Recently, the Tulane University Marching Band has adopted the choreography from the music video to go along with "BJ", a drum cadence consisting of similar rhythms to Tunak Tunak Tun, when the band marches in Mardi Gras parades. The dance from this song's music video can be seen in the video game World of Warcraft. The male Draenei characters do this dance when "/dance" is typed.
