One of my interests lately has been dance.  I recently joined the YMCA and have really enjoyed the Zumba and BodyJam classes.  Simultaneously, I came across a Danish singer by the name of MØ and her song “Lean On”.  In checking out the song I ran across the music video, which was filmed in India.  Needless to say, with my site ISpeakHindi.com I found that to be interesting.
