Kalbeliya Dance



This meaningful war dance originated from the communities of Pawi and Mara, which reside in the southern part of Mizoram. In olden days, the tribes were constantly at war with each other and this ceremony was performed to deride the vanquished by holding the beheaded skull of the enemy which was held by the victor. The ceremony is observed to make the vanquished soul of the enemy remain a slave forever even if the victor dies. It is a warrior dance performed to celebrate a victory in war. When the ceremony begins, there are no songs sung, only beats of energy brought on by the gongs, drums and cymbals. The dance consists of boys and girls standing in alternate position and forming a circle. Colourful dresses are worn by the dancers and the leader of the troupe is dressed as a warrior. The celebration goes on for five days.
