Gauda Khel is a folk dance form of Goa
. This dance, performed by the Kunbi
tribe, also involves elements of a drama. The theme is mostly based on social issues.
Gauda Khel forms an important part of any village festival. It is mostly performed after a successful harvest. The rich reap of harvest after long months of toil is celebrated with the fascinating dance form.
The dance represents the ethnic culture of the Kunbi, which is still retained even though the tribe has converted to Christianity.
