Behold, the Bihu


Bihu, a traditional folk dance of the people of Assam, a north eastern state of India, is performed during the festival of Rongali Bihu in mid-April to herald the arrival of spring. The dancers are dressed in vibrant costumes and sway to the tunes of indigenous folk songs depicting love and romance. Accompanied by the percussion instrument called the dhol, clash cymbal or the taal and wind instruments like pepa, toka, xutuli, gogona and baanhi, the dancers sway in rhythm to celebrate their heritage.
