Explanation: Chhau Dance

  • Recently the distinctive Chhau mask of Purulia, West Bengal was given the Geographic Indication tag.
  • The traditional rural craft of making masks is an integral component of the semi-martial art dance form of Chhau.
  • Chhau dance is a tradition from eastern India that enacts episodes from epics including the Mahabharata and Ramayana, local folklore and abstract themes.
  • Its three distinct styles hail from the regions of Seraikella (Jharrkhand), Purulia (West Bengal) and Mayurbhanj (Odisha), the first two using masks.
  • Chhau dance is intimately connected to regional festivals, notably the spring festival Chaitra Parva.
  • The dance is performed at night in an open space to traditional and folk melodies, played on the reed pipes ''mohuri'' and ''shehnai.''
  • In 2010 the Chhau dance was inscribed in the UNESCO's Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
