Shilpgram Utsav: An Incredible Show

It was a foggy and cloudy day in Udaipur. Despite of the shaking winter the crowd at Shilpgram was too relaxed. Few more days are left to say good bye to Shilpgram Festival in Udaipur. Some best performances which I saw today were Pung Dhol Cholam, Bihu, Bhangra and Oilattam Dances. Here are the classic moments at Shilpgram festival captured by Akhtar Khan.

Pung Dhol Cholam

Shilpgram Utsav: An Incredible Show

A Manipuri dance which electrified the stage of Shilpgram. Dancers performed their choreography while playing the musical instruments like Dholak and Dhol. Their mind blowing energy and heart throbbing steps got huge applause by the crowd. It was the perfect example of power, energy, art and discipline.

Bihu Dance

It’s a traditional folk dance of Assam, which is also considered as the most colorful folk dance of India. A group of dancers, both male and female showcased their cultural heritage. Their gleaming faces assorted well with beautiful music and colorful dressings which made a festive environment.

Bhangra

Shilpgram Utsav: An Incredible Show

This needs no introduction. It is a folk dance which started with Punjab, now reached and got set in whole world. Tonight at Shilpgram, it rocked as usual, and was enjoyed as usual. The dance beat of drum and the masculine Punjabi dancers forced audiences to get up from their seat and hop with them.

Oilattam

Oilattam of Tamil Nadu is a 5000 year old dance, believe it or not but this was an outstanding performance by female dancers who balanced a pot while showing some finger biting moves with different balancing techniques. Indeed, it was a well synchronized show by best artists from Tamil Nadu.
