Folk Dance, Songs & Performing Arts of Bihar
Natua dance

The Natua dance begins with an item called the Natua Kachal. In this duet performance, the accompanying musical instruments include the Nagara, Dhol and Shenai. The costumes worn by the dancers are indigenous and attractive. The Natua dance of Bihar is intrinsically connected to the ritualistic celebrations of tribal lives. Hence, this dance form is extremely popular among the various tribal groups of South Bihar. However, the dance has two forms and both are performed by male dancers only. One style is practiced in the form of a carnival in village fairs which involves great risks and excitement. The second style deals with the love of Radha and Krishna.
