Dances of India
DINDI & KALA
Maharashtra there are religious devotional dances called
Dindi and Kala. These dances describe the playful attitude
of Lord Krishna. Dindi is a small drum like a 'Tamate'.
The musicians in the centre comprising a 'Mridangam'
player and a vocalist give the dancers the necessary
musical background. Around this music, the assembled
men and women dance joyfully. This is usually danced
on the Ekadashi day in the month of Kartik.
