dance

, two or four groups are formed consisting of 2 to 3 charming women. They stand facing each other and hold the hand of the adjacent partner. The women together sway their feet forward and then to back. The song that is sung during the performance is in the form of question and answer form where one group questionand the other respond to it in a rhythmic way.

Bachha Nagma Dance


Bachha Nagma, also known as 'Bachha gyavaun' means 'adolescent melodious voice. The

dance

dance

is performed only by boys or by men dressed as boys. The attire of the dancers has a resemblance with the dress that is worn by Kathak dancers. The

dance

group has six to seven members consisting of one lead singer. Generally, the dancers themselves are the singers and since most of them are boys, the songs are quite soft sounding and create a soothing environment.

Dandaras Dance
Performed mostly during the time of Lori festival, this is a highly professional dance that asks for high levels of skills and practice. A model of peacock that is made of bamboos and colored paper is carried by every group and every member has a stick in his hand. During the dance, the performers hit the stick in the hand of other person in different postures that is not as simple as it looks. The dance is really very energetic and one must surely witness it when he is in Jammu and Kashmir.

Ladishah
Ladishah is tremendously famous and holds an important position in Kashmiri music tradition. Ladishah is a sarcastical form of singing. The songs are sung resonating the present social and political conditions and are utterly humorous. The singers move from village to village performing generally during the harvesting period. The songs are composed on the spot on issues relating to that village, be it cultural, social or political. The songs reflect the truth and that sometimes makes the song a bit hard to digest, but they are totally entertaining.
