Buckeye Mela is a national inter-collegiate Bollywood Fusion and Bhangra dance competition held annually at The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH. This year, the competition will take place the weekend of January 22-23, 2016 at the prestigious Mershon Auditorium on the OSU campus. 8 Fusion and 8 Bhangra teams will be selected to compete for top prizes in their respective categories.
