Dindi Dance

Dindi is a devotional dance form native to Maharashtra. It is performed usually on Ekadashi day in the month of Kartik. The dance describes the playful attitude of Lord Krishna.

Dindi is a small drum, similar to a 'Tamate'. The musicians in the centre including a Mridangam player and a vocalist, give the dancers surrounded them the necessary musical background. As the speed of the rhythm increases, the dancers form into two rows stamp their right feet, bow, and advance with their left feet, making geometric formations.
