The series is inspired by the traditional Indian pre-wedding tradition called the Sangeet. As per tradition, the families of the couple come together before the wedding ceremony to celebrate the upcoming nuptials. It usually involves singing and dancing; some choreographed some not.

The tradition played an important role in Priyanka and Nick's wedding last year.

Announcing the news on Instagram, Priyanka wrote: "At our wedding, both of our families came together to perform a sangeet. A performance (dance-off competition style) that celebrated our love story, one of the most unforgettable moments from a very special time in our lives."

"@nickjonas and I are excited to announce a new, currently untitled project (we're still working on it!!) that celebrates the love and magic that comes from friends and family that join together through music and dance the night before a wedding. It's our #SangeetProject."
