Bagrumba Dance

Bagrumba is one of the main dance forms of Bodos, the largest tribal community of Assam. This is a dance form with slow steps and outstretched hands. About 20 young girls dressed in traditional Bodo Tribal Costumes perform this dance according to the music of traditional Bodo musical instruments.

The dance starts with horizontal lines but takes a circular pattern later on. The performers hold the ends of colorful scarves hung round their necks. The dancers move forward and backward with alternate footsteps to the accompaniment of Kham (drum) and Sifung (flute). The harmonious jerks of the waist, graceful forward and backward swinging of the body and wrist all together makes it worth watching for the spectators.
