What can come between the Santhals and their dance? Nothing! #RecallBengal.
With a rich cultural heritage, the Santhal (Bengali word for ‘tribe’) people are well-known for their dance in Bengal. And do they know to dance!
The Santhal dance is a fusion of immense vibrancy and cheerfulness. Mainly glorifying nature, while covering a range of themes in their dance, they also pay their respects to Goddess Durga through it.
The Santhals dance barefoot and do it even when its scorching hot! The earlier generations of Santhals earned a living from the dance. And though the new generation has been compelled to do farming, or leave for the cities in search of jobs, they still haven’t abandoned their dance.
Watch how impressed our host was with the Santhal dance, and how it inspired her to learn the dance steps and nurture a wish to set up a tribal dance school.
