Folk Dance forms of India

HAJGIRI
Tripura has a large tribal population, comprising mainly the Riangs, who worship both tribal and Hindu divinities. They subsist on cultivation, and to ensure a happy harvest propitiate the Godess Lakshmi. This includes a dance by young girls, called Hajagiri, which also demonstrates multiple balancing skills and has its own set of instruments for accompaniment. At the time of principal festivals, men and women dance together, often in the compound of their own houses.
