DANDIYA DANCE History and origin
Dandiya dance is a very traditational folk dance it depicts the various scenes of holi and lila of Krishnan and radha. Going back to the origin, devotional Garba dances were always performed in Durgas honour, this dance form is actually the staging of a mock fight between the Goddess and Mahishasura. During the dance, dancers energetically whirl and move their feet and arms in a complicated, choreographed manner to the tune of the music with various rhythms. The dhol is used as well as complementary percussion Instruments such as the dholak, tabla and others.The sticks of the dance represent the swords of Durga. The women wear traditional dresses such as colorful embroidered choli, ghagra and bandhani dupattas , dazzling with mirror work and heavy jewellery. The men wear special turbans and kedias, but this varies regionally.Garba is performed before Aarti as devotional performances in the honor of the Goddess, while Dandiya is performed after it, as a part of merriment.
Men and women join in for Dandiya, and also for the Garba. The circular movements of Dandiya are much more complex than those of Garba.
The origin of these dance performances or Raas is Krishna. Today, Raas is not only an important part of Navratri in gujarat, but extends itself to other festivals related to harvest and crops as well.
