About Chhau Festival

Orissa has earned name and popularity in the worldwide field for its celebrated military Chhau dance. This assortment of move is pervasive in the august conditions of Mayurbhanj, Nilagiri and Sareikala now in Bihar. This move is performed solely by men. The starting point of Chhau dance is covered in haziness and no verifiable archive in this setting has yet been recuperated.

Etymologically, Chhau is gotten from the Sanskrit word 'Chhaya', which implies a veil yet a few researchers are of sentiment that Chhau is a free casual Odissi word, which means to assault or chase stealthily. It is clearly a war move.

The means and developments, the assault and resistance, the entertainers, each holding a sword and shield, isolating themselves into two gatherings, the drums and their method of play, the colossal pot drum known as 'Dhumusa' an unquestionable requirement in the ensemble, its resonating capable thumps invigorating the artists, all connote that Chhau dancen is unmistakably started from conjugal practices.
