Tarangmel Dance

Tarangmel is a popular folk dance in Goa. It is a multi-hued dance performed exclusively by the young girls and boys. This dance form is a major attraction during the festive seasons of Dussehra and Holi.

The spirited youths swarm the streets in colorful group, waving flags and streamers (tarang), inspiring and inviting one and all to imbibe the festive spirit. They shout ‘Ho- Ho’ along with the beats of romut, dhola and tasha.

The rainbow like costumes of the dancers and multi-colored flags make the atmosphere visually pleasing.
