Indian Folk Dance

DANDARIA
Andhra Pradesh is the home of many tribes like Banjaras, Chenchus and Mathuris. All have dances of their own. Some dance around a fire, some have many magical and trance dances. The agriculturists amongst them dance during certain festivals.

On the occasion of festivals, dancers, dressed in their best, exchange visits with other villages and are received as honoured guests wherever they go. The youth, followed by musicians, come first, while the old men are the last to arrive. Then they all dance together, holding sticks which they strike against one another to keep time. These are the Dandaria dance.
