Barpeta’s Bhortal Nritya

Barpeta bhortal nritya

The Bhortal Nritya of Barpeta evolved from the classical dance form of that particular district of Assam and was developed by Narahari Burha Bbakat, a well known Sattriya artist. It is performed in a group of six or seven dancers or sometimes in even in larger groups and is performed with the intention of praising God.

The dancers carry large cymbals that they play to the music’s very fast beat and which makes the dance a very interesting and rousing one. The movements are designed to produce colourful patterns, unique amongst the other dances of Assam, and as a result of all these elements it appeals to people of all ages and cultural backgrounds.
