Description

India dances to the rhythms of a million rural feet. With no formal training in dance, unaware of classical traditions, the innocent dancers of the villages dance because they must. A happy, vigorous ode to life and living.

The richness and variety, expanse and extent of the country’s folk-dance forms are captured in this book, in all their entirety. Several unknown forms-some on the verge of extinction-have been featured, as a record of the last century, a period of change and transition.

The book is in many ways the first of its kind, for it also encapsulates ritual, martial and tribal dances.

ETERNAL INDIA SERIES

The cultural expression of India is as varied in style as it is in form and this is due partly to the size of the land, its myriad religions, races, beliefs, customs and its many layered history.

The series combines pieces of this splendid mosaic with an eye on the apparent as well as the hidden nuances; on tradition and continuity as well as the winds of change.
