Folk Performances

The folk forms of any place, are a repository of it’s culture and history. They express the body of culture shared by a particular group of people. Punjab’s rich performing art forms are scheduled the full day-from the powerful Gatka, to the energetic Bhangda and the vibrant Gidda, set to the exhilarating beat of the Dhol- the barrel shaped drum, carved out of a single block of hard wood, usually about 20-26 inches long. Harnessed around the shoulders using a thick cotton belt and played with a pair of sticks, its typical 8 beat pattern the Chaal, creates the heady sound which is perhaps most popular in Punjab.
