Dance that show the richness of our culture

There’s perhaps no better way to explore the vast cultural landscape of India than through its folk song and dance. Each state and region offers a unique glimpse and taste into its way of life, rituals and traditions. And the more you explore, the more you realize that although they all tell the same story, what’s truly magical is how different they still are from each other.
