Tribal Trial with Bamboo Dance


India is a country of art and culture ,a land of diverse community , language and demographic quality. Of the known areas of dance, a very interesting one is the Bamboo Dance in India, performed exclusively by Tribal. This form of boogie is the heart and soul of tribal community and is a must to-do activity(at least ones ) for an individual in his life time

Bamboo dance is a participatory action performed by both men and women, dressed in traditional attire. The dance involves a gentle jump over bamboo sticks, placed horizontally in parallel spacing over the vertically placed bamboo sticks to form interface. Two person sit on either side of the ground and slide the sticks over the vertically placed bamboo sticks. The dance is followed with a rhythmic music as 'hih-hoh with the help of which dancer adjust their steps. The sliding of the bamboo stripes jig the whole environment and gives a picture-perfect scene.

Many tribal submerged the dance with myths and beliefs. They believe that the rhythm of the sound made by the bamboo sticks attracts a folk of multi hued insects called 'lebang' and as such women organize themselves in group to catch them. This dance is highly enjoyed after the time of Jhum cultivation and is still flattering many tribal regions.

The North-eastern region of India is a getaway to viewing Bamboo dance. The proud states includes Tripura, Nagaland and Manipur, of which Naga people of Nagaland are the real gems.

I am from the state of Mizoram and I would like to say it on record that Cheraw (dancing with Bamboos) in done ONLY by the Mizos from Mizoram in India although 'Cheraw' of different styles are also common in the South East Asian countries. If other NE states performed the dance, it would equal Americans performing a Bollywood dance. Thank YOU
